It has been a while since a collection of geometric shapes caught my eye, but I really liked the patterns of light and shadow seen here in the dark vertical, light horizontal, and even-lighter slanted lines created by sunlight filtering first through the leaves of our magnolia tree and second through the blinds on our dining room windows.
There’s something very restful about these colors and lines. Today has been such a beautiful day in Milwaukee! Sunny and much cooler than the extremely high temperatures and humidity we had earlier in the week.
These mid-June days in the run-up to the longest day of the year are my favorites. It’s almost 6:30 PM right now and we have at least three hours of daylight ahead of us. Even approaching 9:30 PM, there may still be the tiniest amount of light left in the sky.
A week from now the days will have begun shortening again. Sigh. I think I need to move somewhere closer to the equator since these long, long days of sunlight make me so very happy.
On the other hand, if this was the norm maybe I would not appreciate it quite as much.
