‘he says one word, nodding into the daylight.
it’s an astounding word. it’s a gift.’
what i saw
as i arrived at school
for parent teacher conferences
at the beginning of the day.
also what i saw
as i left school
after parent teacher conferences
at the end of the same day.
a day always passes
no matter how busy or how calm
no matter what we have done or not done
somehow slipping by.
‘the long day wanes; the slow moon climbs the deep.’
-alfred lord tennyson
“finish each day and be done with it.
you have done what you could.
some blunders and absurdities
no doubt crept in;
forget these as soon as you can.
tomorrow is a new day.
you shall begin it serenely
and with too high a spirit
to be encumbered
with your old nonsense”
-ralph waldo emerson
july full moon – ann arbor summer
We lost 38 seconds of daylight yesterday. By the end of the month, we’ll be losing over 2 minutes each day and by the end of next month, nearly 20 minutes per week. Here’s what you can expect as you savor the waning days of Michigan’s warm season:
July: -45 minutes lost
August: -1 hour 16 minutes lost
September: -1 hour 22 minutes lost
October: -1 hour 23 minutes lost
November: -1 hour 1 minute lost
It won’t be long until you have an extra 6 hours of darkness to spend on your indoor hobbies. Have a great Monday.
