Summer wanes

We are the 21st of June today, the day of the summer solstice, the longest day of the year and for some the true beginning of summer. I generally blog about it every year (my best post was this one if you are interested) and today is no exception. We have been having a very good summer so far, at least the kind of summer I consider good. I hope it stays like this: just warm enough, not scorching hot, pleasant. If for many summer starts, for me the solstice represents its solar peak: from now on it will slowly go down and evenings will be closer and closer. And as an autumn man who loves cooler temperatures and earlier evenings, that are a call to rest, I am happy with this. There is something a bit melancholic about the solstice, come to think of it.
