And here we are--the longest day of the year. The summer solstice, the start of summer and the turning point when, after pausing at the same level on the horizon for three days, the sun begins its slow march toward the short, dark days of December. I prefer to focus on the summer part. If the weather cooperates, we're planning to celebrate the extra hours of daylight with a post-work hike before finding the perfect picnic spot or patio to toast the sun when it finally sets at 9:11 PM this evening.
Happy summer to you! Any plans to celebrate the sun today?
