Solstice Twilight Ride and the Morning Dew
Today I took advantage of today's solstice the longest daylight of the year to take an after dinner ride on the Montour Trail, ending in darkness at 2105. Very nice ride, got to use all of my lights. There was a surprising number of people out on the trail late in the evening.
It is curious that today is the first day of summer, and yet somehow, starting immediately, the days begin getting shorter. It reminds me of a phrase from the Analects (I think): the morning dew is as fleeting as life.
