Autumn Equinox in the Southern Hemisphere

Summer ends and fall begins in the Southern Hemisphere under the astronomical calendar. It occurred here in Uruguay at 7:28 AM, Monday, March 20, 2017.

At this special time in astronomy, the sun’s direct rays are crossing over the Earth’s equator from the southern hemisphere to the northern hemisphere. At the equinox, days and nights are of equal duration: balanced all over the world.

As daylight in the Southern Hemisphere continues to shrink, I’m grateful for the abundance we enjoy and the good life we have in Uruguay! I plan to buckle down, stir my imagination, and concentrate on many new creative projects.

Thanks to our furry friends, sound therapy begins as the days get shorter and the nights get colder. Near a blazing fire, the soft purr of our Oscar cat and the loud snores of our three snoozing dogs promise to relax our minds and warm our hearts with love and light.

Peace to you, your family and friends, as our world turns.

  1. How lovely Susan. And we in Cape Town echo that precisely. Think of you and Doug often. Montevideo is at about the same position as Cape Town in the ‘world’s best cities to live in’.

    1. Hola Savyra, nice to hear from you in Cape Town. We enjoy our peaceful life in Uruguay! In today’s troubled world, it’s refreshing to live in a chaos-free environment. We’re lucky!
