After a June in which we received more rain than clouds, more clouds than sun, more sun than nothing.
A June in which I understood that seasonal depression was a thing (or at least could be a thing, a very real kind of thing) - when summer lasts at best three full months and one had just slipped away, grey, under the watch of a calendar that might as well have been eleven months (which would have thrown off the Aztecs) a somber mood overtakes the Commonwealth and the businesses are less than busy and the first snowfall is getting closer by the day.
After that - Friday was sunny. Friday was warm. Friday was summer.
I was able to share it with a few guys who’d just moved in from New York City and my wife. Who were all equally as willing to shed the grey for July.
