Sunday June 21st...

The true secret of happiness lies in the taking a 
genuine interest in all the details of daily life...

June 21 is the longest day and it is called the 
Summer Solstice. Long days are one thing and 
Summer Solstice is something way more
 complicated than just a long day.

From March to September, the northern hemisphere 
gets more sunlight than the southern one.

June 21st is the day when the northern hemisphere 
receives the most direct sunlight, which causes the day
 to last longer than any other day in the year.  After this 
date, the course of sunlight gets more south-bound 
and we get a Winter Solstice on December 22nd.

COVID cases keep increasing in Florida.  A few
 days ago Arvid said to me, "we need to get away
 from here."  We need to move to Puerto Rico.

Arvid goes through so many ideas, but I know him. 
 I know it's all in the moment talk.  Puerto Rico 
does sound good, but do I really want to do this?
When I look at the pictures then I want to 🌴

  Take Sniff and not know what will happen 🤷?  
Not sure.  Here at home all is familiar and I know
 where to go if something happens and what to do.

To all the dads our there.  Happy Father's Day.
To my dad, you're my hero and the first man
 I ever loved.  I love you daddy.  Always.

Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of 
darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning
 if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better to take 
things as they come along with patience and equanimity...
