Chris in the Morning's Winter Solstice Speech

Goethe’s final words: more light. Ever since we crawled out of that primordial slime, that’s been our unifying cry: more light. Sunlight, torchlight, candlelight, neon, incandescent, light to banish the darkness from our caves, to illuminate our roads, the insides of our refrigerators. Big floods for the night games at Soldier’s Field, little tiny flashlight for those books we read under the covers when we’re supposed to be asleep. Light is more than watts and footcandles, light is metaphor. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet. Rage, rage against the dying of the light! Lead, kindly light, amid the encircling gloom, lead thou me on. The night is dark and I am far from home, lead thou me on. Arise, shine, for thy light has come. Light is knowledge, light is life, light is light.

Thanks to the Enlightened Conflict Blog ( for this transcript. It is Chris's speech to the town as he prepares to light up his aurora borealis sculpture in downtown Cicely on the night of winter solstice. The blogger notes that Chris quotes the following: Thy word…feet, Psalm 119:105; Rage…light, Dylan Thomas, Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night; Lead kindly…home, John Henry Newman, The Pillar of the Cloud; Arise..come, Isaiah 60:1.

Watch the scene in the video below.

Northern Exposure Opening Theme
Here's the opening credits of Northern Exposure, with that wonderful catchy theme by David Schwartz. Did you know that Schwartz also did the music for another show with a cult following? Who can name it?

Here's a Spotify playlist of available music that was on the Northern Exposure soundtrack. I've got it up through some time in Season 3 now, and will continue to add to it as I have time.
