Last night was the Summer solstice, the longest day of the year. From now on the days wil get shorter again. 😦 I love the long summer evenings. One solstice I want to be really up north, when the sun doesn’t go down at all.
For now I feel sadness, like everything which was growing and hopefull is now diminishing and will dwindle into nothingness.

I’m over my temporary dip: It’s still light until after 22.00 😀

Specs, it’s strangely cold here, 14 C. I like it, leaves me with lots of energy to do stuff.
I do sympathise with you though…

Kim, Wasilla… the town of governour Palin and book-censure… Yeah…. Cool!
Mind if I bring a couple of books to donate to the local library??? 😈

I’ve always loved the shortening days, the beginning of CRISP in the air, to me fall is the time of new beginnings, probably because that is when school always started. I admit, by the grim grey days of January, it gets a little old!

intlxpatr, I looove the fall! I love the seasons; it’s always interesting and surprising what will happen!
It’s just that I’m not quite ready for the days to shorten yet!

Haleem, it’s only just started here as well!
Temperature wise…
