The saddest day of the year.

Summer Solstice.  The day the sun loses its battle with the light and begins to fade.

Yes.  I know, it'll be a couple of months before the fading light creeps up on me.  But, still, I swear I feel the change in my very bones.  And I'm filled with sadness.

Someday, I want to spend the Solstice here.  But without the loud crowds.

  1. You feel the change in your bones on June 21. I feel the change in my bones on Dec 21. But instead of sadness I feel joy and hope. Soak in the light, let it nourish you and carry you through to the winter solstice.
