Photo Challenge: Languid Stream of Time

All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full;
unto the place from where the rivers come, there they return again.

Ecclesiastes, 1:7

This shallow stream  meanders  into Lake Michigan, one of the four Great Lakes that surround Michigan’s  peninsulas, and on a languid summer day it is a treat to feel the wet sand squishing between your toes .

Photo Challenge: Autumn’s Transient Music

Those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane
by those who could not hear the music.
–Friedrich Nietzsche

The crimsons of  autumn are but a transient visitor, too soon faded and eclipsed by winter’s shadow.

And summer’s lease hath too short a date.
Shakespeare, Sonnet 18

Today we have the longest sunlight of the year, but the seasons are transient–and green must sometime give way to gold.

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.
