Way too much light

So the longest day of the year was followed by the biggest, brightest moon of the year. That's just grandstanding, if you ask me. It's rude and unseemly.

But I'm happy to note that we are now moving in a more sophisticated direction, toward early darkness. Each day will be shorter than the one that precedes it.

Can you feel the glamour rushing back? It's subtle at this point but if you're very quiet at twilight, you can sense the promise of increasing comfort as night falls.

Take a deep breath. Summer will soon be over. And before you know it, it will be Xmas. Now, if you only had a good book to go with that. Oh, I know!

I wonder if there is a way we can fix it where it gets light early AND dark early. Lately I love walking really early in the mornings...but part of that is because it is so bloody hot if you linger too long.

Damn! You just reminded me that I forgot to take my early walk. Now it's sweltering out there. Yup, early morning is fine (unless you've been up all night, in which case it's unsufferably rude).
