A very belated Summer Solstice lament

Does anyone else find summer solstice to be the most depressing day of the year?

The world has been getting lighter and brighter for six whole months, and we have just entered the carefree days of summer where, even if we don’t have jobs that give us summer breaks, the bright mornings and prolonged evenings give a feeling of lightness and mental holiday.

Then, right when we start to enjoy it, BAM! Get ready for the darkness to begin closing in once again.

Sure, you could go out and enjoy the sun while it lasts, but what’s the point? It’s already fleeing from you. Now every day, every moment, that passes, somewhere inside your body, you know that the world is getting darker and colder. Just to remind you of your slow, inevitable march towards death, the sun begins withdrawing from your life.

Sigh.

(There’s no way I’m being overly dramatic with this, is there?)
