You didn’t think you could keep the darkness at bay, did you?

With yesterday’s summer solstice marking the year’s longest day you are now closer to winter than you are farther away. Whatever sunshine you see going forward at is just a reminder that the darkness has been gathering strength, waiting for the right moment start its inexorable march on the horizon and seize its rightful place as a pervasive harbinger of doom. Soon it will spread itself all over your sky. The light is dying a little every evening now and there’s nothing you can do about it. Here’s some music. Enjoy.
