Holding On

I'm holding on very much to the long evenings right now. 

I actually got quite sad when we hit Summer Solstice because it means the days are heading yet again towards being shorter... and darker and man oh man do I love SO MUCH when it's still light at 9 pm.

I know we still have a couple of months of the really long days so I'm trying to just be in that while they're here.

I'm typing this, for example, at 9:36 pm, with my blinds still open and the sky still with a lot of light in it.  I mean, sure, it's dusk...evening... but it's light out.  And I ate my dinner when it was light out and I felt like my day was long and that I could accomplish a lot.

I wonder if it would be easier to live nearer the equator and have even days all year, or to live here in Summer and the Southern equivalent in Winter.  Is that part of what "snowbirding" is?

Anyway... the long days are so so amazing and I love them.

Yes, even if I wake up earlier than I'd like, I still love them.

I am disappointed at the lack of banana in the accompanying picture.

And yes, as the days grow shorter I think of you and hope that you're somehow adapting.

This is an old photo, before the banana people (person)!
