Last of the lengthening days

Tomorrow is the first day of summer here in the Northern Hemisphere.  The summer solstice.  The longest day of the year.

I always mark this day with a little twinge of sadness, knowing that it means each evening for the next six months will grow a little darker, until the Sun is setting on my drive home from work and the evenings stretch long and black through the winter.

But tonight is a lovely evening, and so my heart will rejoice.


One thought on “Last of the lengthening days

  1. My feelings exactly. Wonder if anyone is uplifted by shorter days and longer nights. Surely there are “night” people, but I’m not one of them. Of course, here I sit at 11:35 just because I don’t want to go to bed. I like staying up; I just don’t like darkness. Does that make sense?
