Pinakamahabang… araw!

Today is June 21, a ‘moment’ in a year known to astronomers and meteorologists as summer solstice. Summer season “officially” begins today in the Northern hemisphere, where the daytime is at its longest and the nighttime at its shortest. The sun rises and sets at its farthest northward reach in the eastern and western horizon. Those at the Arctic circle (near the North Pole) are experiencing 24 hours of daytime each day.

(In the Southern hemisphere, the reverse is true – shortest day and longest night; people who live there are now enjoying a cool “winter”! Antarctica in the South Pole has 24 hours of ‘sunless’ nighttime.)

Clouds above the western horizon have been hiding the sun this past few days keeping me from shooting a more recent sunset photo; Fortunately, the sun showed up just before sundown on June 21. These days, the sun sets behind the faint mountain at right (compare this with my SUNSET photos of December 21 and March 20 ).

Ito po ay “global” point of view lang naman. Medyo iba po yan sa nakasanayan na nating mga Pinoy. Maski may tinatawag tayong “Tagsibol” at “Taglagas”, a country like ours has only two distinct seasons: dry and wet – tag-araw at tag-ulan. Or as the global warming is making it more distinct, tag-tigang at tag-baha. 😆 (El niño at la niña sa español. … anhirap magtype ng “enye!”)

Tapos na ang Father’s day – lusot na naman ako sa mga “kantyaw” 😛

Ahehe, aktwali hindi naman ako napipikon diyan. Ang paminsan-minsang pagbanggit ko ng salitang “baog” dito ay hindi naman para umani ng panlalait o kaya’y simpatiya… Hindi rin naman para ibaba ang aking pagkatao – unang-una’y kumpirmado ng mga duktor na talagang hindi (defensive pa e ‘no? 😆 ); Pangalawa’y sa tingin ko nama’y bagama’t ang pagkakaroon ng anak ay sya na yatang pinakamagandang biyaya ng Diyos para sa mag-asawa, 😉 ang kawalan nito ay hindi naman talaga napakalaking kabawasan o kakulangan. Gusto ko lang i-cheer-up yung ilang mga baog ding (tsk tsk tsk… inulit pa) “walk-in” na napapasilip dito sa blog ko, lalo na duon sa mga dumadaan sa ganitong mga pagsubok.

Mahirap kasing patulan pa yang mga kantyaw, p’re. Baka “kung saan pa tayo makarating” para lang patunayang hindi… 😆

Pero hindi pa tapos ang buwan ng Hunyo. Siguro naman may mga girlfriends pang naghahabol na maging June bride. Derpor, kasalan (uli) ang ating pag-usapan.
