Maybe it's true that days shorten and lengthen faster the farther you get away from the winter and summer solstices. Time was the stats read 'tomorrow will be 1 min 10 seconds shorter than today.' Now it's '2 minutes 53 seconds.' So yeah, if it gets darker twenty minutes earlier than a week ago, you're gonna notice it. Thus the suddenly earlier evenings of late August that everyone remarks on.
Full Fathom Five reads much clearer for having read Four Roads Cross. I can actually follow the skullduggery and conspiracies this time.
Be content with what you have? So I suppose I'm contented with the mid-20s and mid-teens of this unrainy weekend. Shall not think about the mid-30s to come. Do not quote me next January, but I'm almost longing for the cold bitter winter the Farmer's Almanac is forecasting.
