The Anglo Saxon druids called it Thingtide. Most people call it the Summer Solstice. I call it fantastic.
The sun rose today at 5:36am (here in Toronto) and will set at 9:03pm tonight making for a 15 hour 26 minute and 44 second day, two second longer than yesterday and two second longer than tomorrow.
The actual Solstice – when the apparent position of the sun is highest in the year- officially occurs at 6:06pm (GMT) today. This marks the official start of Summer so get out there and enjoy the rays!
Hmmm…and why is it that everywhere I see, I just hear news quite cognitively capable of depressing me?
Never been the day-person, I have. I love the night. The absence of light. The silence. The tranquillity…
Needn’t enumerate the infiniteness of it here though.
Coming to think of it, I like the stars too in the night. Love them, actually. And coming to think of it, the poor old sun is a start too. Just that the darned thing is too near and too bright for my liking.
But then, who listens to me anyway?
P.S. What does interest me is a curiosity to know what CMS is it that you use, Adrian?
