Happy Solstice, from Daisy

Daisy      Do you ever watch for the longest day of the year and
then miss it?

Jay Gatsby          Don’t you mean the shortest day of the year, Daisy?

Daisy                   Jay, I’m p-p-paralyzed with happiness that the days will be
getting longer now.

Daisy’s Gentle Reminder to Savor the Longest Day

Do you always wait for the longest day of the year and then miss it?

—Daisy Buchanan, Great Gatsby

The summer solstice arrives in the eastern time zone of the U.S. shortly after midnight.  In Detroit, that will mean  about 15 hours and 17 minutes  of daylight.   Enjoy the light.
