    I love fall. Shorter days don’t bother me. Just means diving season is on the downhill side and it was already two months short this year due to the stupid plague.

    I always feel a little sad on the solstice, knowing it means the days will slowly get shorter and we're heading into the summer heat and humidity. I love the long summer evenings, tho.

    And it is something like a pendulum ... it swings as far as it can go one way, then it swings back the opposite direction.

    I received a "Blessed Litha" Card with a picture of a fairy riding what looks like a battering ram through the Big Dipper!

    I can do with a little shorter days so the birds don't wake me up at 4:30 in the morning. It is not sad to me.

    Time marches on, and once again we can revel in the Midsommer.

    The summer solstice is the center of the 12-week period when we of the northern hemisphere may be able to see a circumhorizontal arc ("fire rainbow") in the sky. The angle of the sun is right for a possible fire rainbow during 6 weeks before and after summer solstice.

    Happy Midsummer! Thanks for the reminder. Also, loved the fire rainbow! I've never heard or seen that before!
