There Goes the Sun

It has been happening since the 3rd week of June.

I've noticed it for a couple of weeks but I didn't want to admit it.

Its something I knew was happening and was powerless to stop it or change it.

The days have been growing shorter and finally I cannot deny the obvious any longer because today is the third day this week that a major portion of my commute will be in darkness.

Subconsciously, for the past couple of weeks, I believe I have been delaying my departure from home so that I could enjoy the daylight. That is no longer possible since I leave home around 6:00 and sunrise today is 6:32.

Central Ohio will lose about 2 minutes of sunlight each day.

It doesn't seem fair but it is what it is.

Unless I relocate further south... Maybe I should just start riding south.

I've been trying to deny the inevitable too, but the sun won't allow it. It's not so much a dark commute that I lament, but the return to school. I love the job, but as the old bumper sticker said, "A bad day of fishing still beats a good day at work!"

Quite talking about this stuff. Maybe it will go away.

As much as I like fall and the onset of colder and better riding weather I just hate the shortening days. If I am going to whine that's on the list...
