Happy Solstice

Today is the Solstice and I have been waiting for it for such a long time.

I’ve always loved when the evenings get dark but honestly I think that’s novelty more than anything. Long summer days are also painful, although painful in a different way.

Long evenings get too long. The weather is too cold. The misery becomes too much.

The light will be coming back though, the warmth of the sun. The necessary vitamin D.

Also it’s another year turned and that’s not a bad thing either. Time is something I used to almost fear but honestly now it’s something that needs to be embraced and spent wisely.

I hope that whoever you are, wherever you are that this new year, this new Sun brings with it warmth, light, compassion and love. That if your end is soon it comes with peace and if you’re just beginning you become your destiny.

Happy Solstice to you all.

A muse on meteorology

It’s that time of year again. We wrap up warm. Invest in the waterproof boots and enjoy the change of atmosphere. Mostly I find the change in nature the most comforting. The colours of the leaves, the weather doing its thing of being…….wait 21 degrees. 21 FUCKING DEGREES! IN OCTOBER!!!

Sorry but it has been a bit of nonsense. Got the flu jab and it feel like we should be getting our jabs for travelling instead.

A armature hobby of mine is meteorology. Don’t ask why, it’s always been something that’s been of interest. Probably since being raised in Ireland it means that weather has been an ever present issue in my life.

Watching the weather and the climate change over my own lifetime has been worrisome. Cards on the table, I think Climate Change is real and humans are having an impact on it. I also think vaccines are a good thing and the Earth is a globe.

The problem is that now as a human living on the planet we are having to adapt so much more to these changes.

At the moment we’re complaining about it being warm in October and having half a meter of snow in February. It makes me worry but it’s not enough to get us to change too much either is it?

What would make you change how you live? For me it would be lack of coffee.

Don’t get me wrong, we recycle, take the bus or walk everywhere but we still produce waste and buy things online. The thing is how much will we be willing to be flexible?
