I have always enjoyed the challenge of figuring out a) what time it is and b) where we are at this particular moment on an airplane!!
Thanks Joe

It’s hard to believe that it’s been one year since our dear friend, Erin Espeland passed away. A scientist and fellow musician, Erin left us way too soon and we miss her deeply.

Cycles of love and death

July 13, 2019. Sunset 8:29 PM.
Los Gatos, CA.

Until our dear friend Larry passed away, my friends Larry and Catherine Shaw renewed their wedding vow every 7 years. Their friends Bill and Peri (and several other couples) have recently completed their own 7-year cycles (49), (42), (35), (28) (14). They renewed their vows with a ceremony and a big party bash. As part of the celebration they wanted to include a sunset bell ringing like the one we had for Larry’s memorial gathering.
Congratulations everyone!!!!
(Thank you, Ron for the video)

Lagging and dragging-- leg and the light

Since mid-July, it looks like we've been losing a minute of light from either end of the day. For us at this latitude the days are 33" shorter since the Solstice. It's creeping along-- Much like walking abilities these days... From China and Poland to Pennsylvania and California.-- I am especially grateful to everyone who shared their sun crossing moments with the dailybell these past few weeks as I have been hobbling around on a broken ankle since the end of June. Thank you everyone for sharing your days and evenings and for your kind wishes. Brenda
