Today will be an early day of watching the live stream from Pau and then out in to the world to soak up every minute of available light. I’m going to pretend that it’s still the middle of the summer and not the time of year where I find myself inappropriately quoting Dylan Thomas as I rage against the dying of the light. As much as I love clipping, quarter sheets, blankets, late night ghost stories, moonlit Dressage courts and audiobooks, the gradual slide towards winter and the holidays is bearing down with undeniable force this year. I keep checking the times for sunrise and sunset with the same obsessive frequency that consumes me when I want to see if my entries were accepted. The weather in California is too beautiful to accept the reality of dark-by-five that I’ll be wailing about in just over a week’s time.
