August 1, 2014. Sunset 8:13 PM. NYC.
Sharing a nice meal with Pauline Oliveros, Ione and Bun Ching Lam after saying goodbye to our wonderful friend and colleague, Jenneth Webster. Jenneth ran the Lincoln Center Out of Doors for decades and there was a memorial for her earlier this evening at the Lincoln Center. We miss her. So here’s a noisy send off from a momentarily dyslexic me- (all I captured was a brief snippet of the sound in the restaurant) --

June 21, 2014. Sunset 8:34 Chapel of the Chimes. Oakland, CAEven though the Solstice has passed, the sun continues to set a bit later, reaching its apex (at this latitude anyway) on 6/26/14. Then the sun will continue to set at 8:36 for another week before reversing direction and joining the sunrise to shrink our daily dose of sunlight. Here is a snippet of this year’s Solstice celebration from the Garden of Memory at the Chapel of the Chimes in Oakland, CA. A hundred bells, the Cardew Choir and the general din of 1000’s of people greeting the summer—
Thank you Rose for the amazing bell.
FYI The NY Times published an article challenging our association of light with all things good- including the relationship between the amount of sunlight and mood.

For the sunrise I usually face east for a more direct view of the change in light. However, knowing that I was going to document both the sunrise and sunset, I decided to face the Pacific Ocean in the morning. And there was the moon! Hanging over the sea, on it’s way down.
So here is a nice view from the middle of the street on the day of the nearest balance of light and darkness as we approach the Equinox. To find out which day the Equilux occurs at your latitude- click here and enter your location.
Do you see the flare at sunset? Can that be the “green flash”? I have only seen it through a camera lens. Has anyone ever seen it with his or her bare eyes?
On the move into the light- Happy Spring!
