It’s the first day of summer, the solstice began a few hours ago. We, in the mid-Atlantic states, are sun challenged. It’s rained for 17 out of the last 21 days. Plants are yellowing, pots are saturated and lawns are very, very green.
Even though I avoid sun exposure, I want to be a sun worshiper. I don’t need to align myself with any particular group, I just want to bask in its golden warmth. I want to be sun kissed. Since it’s not happening naturally, here’s my offering in the hope that the weather gods will grant my humble request to change the soundtrack to the Beatles’ ‘Here Comes the Sun’.
