Summer Solstice Wake Up

The Solstice sun breaks the horizon; instantly, light streams through the crack in the curtains and dream images are interrupted by semi-rational thoughts.

Ugh. Friday. One more day to get through and then it will be Saturday.

Wait.

It IS Saturday.

Is it?

It IS!


Smile. Roll over. Fifteen more days. Just fifteen.

Happy Summer Solstice everyone! Today in Bellingham the sun rose at 5:07 and it will set at 9:17, for 16 hours and 10 minutes of daylight. It will be light outside till almost 10 p.m. Now, if the sun actually pokes through the clouds, all will be right in the world.

Realizing it is a Saturday morning when you thought it was a weekday and promptly drifting back to sleep = best feeling in the world.

Also, if you and La G. want sunshine, it's like Solstice every damn day down here.

Happy solstice! And happy extra few minutes of sleep. I hope the sun breaks through a few times for you today.
