The Elusive Summer Solstice

“Do you always watch for the longest day of the year and then miss it? I always watch for the longest day in the year and then miss it.”
–Daisy, in Great Gatsby

Summer Solace

I pray you, in your letters,
When you shall these unlucky deeds relate,
Speak of me as I am; nothing extenuate,
Nor set down aught in malice. Then must you speak
Of one that lov’d not wisely but too well.

Shakespeare, Othello
