I am a creature of the light. I don’t suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder but I do feel much happier when my world is filled with bright light and the days are long.
If only I could freeze time so that it’s always June. I love the short nights. I love looking out at 10pm and still being able to see daylight smudging the sky. And I really love waking at 4a.m and finding it as bright as mid-morning so Boo! to the Summer Solstice.
I look forward to and dread Midsummer. It is the pinnacle of the year when light triumphs over dark and we have the longest day but it’s also when the wheel turns back and spins us down to the depths of winter nights. I wish all my days could be Midsummer days. I realise that I wouldn’t appreciate it so much if it were so but I’m willing to give it a try. I also realise that the Winter Solstice is a time for celebration but I’d think I’d still like to just live in June.
Stop the world, I want to get off.
