Depressed about Decreasing Daylight

Sun 5.24 25m
Mon 5.25 11m
Wed 5.27 32m
Sat 5.30 17m
Sunday 5.24, rode from the Rez to Geneva College at the top of College Hill. Then rode to Bruster's for ice cream.

Mon 5.25, just a short ride on the Montour Trail from the Schmidt's trailhead out to Boggs, my favorite Montour trailhead, and back. Got to see Dan and SarahQ on the Pittsburgh Randonneurs riding the Montour Loop.

Wed 5.27, started on the Montour Trail at McDonald Trestle, rode to the McMurray Starbucks. Got to see the new bridge projects at Route50 and also at Route19.

Sat 5.30, started in McDonald with my wife. Rode out to Burgettstown and Walden's Trailside Restaurant, reversed back to the vehicle and got back in the van just before the heavy rain started.

So bumbed that in three weeks the days start getting shorter.

  1. I used to get bummed out like that. But I started to realize, at least for me, it just comes down to perspective.

    Three weeks until the days get shorter. Or, six weeks where the days are going to be just as long as today, and sometimes longer.

    At times like that I also like to remind myself that there is plenty of time to feel down once the incident occurs. Until then, there's 3 beautiful weeks to enjoy.

    Is the glass half empty, half full or twice as large as it needs to be?

    Anyway, it's just what works for me. Hope it helps you out too!
