The return of the darkness

Obviously, this does not refer to Cameroon, for there the daily exchange of light and dark is mostly unvarying and the two are portioned out evenly.

The long, lingering evenings of a prairie summer have been glorious. I'm disappointed to see them come to an end. After a rainy day, I left my apartment to take a stroll down the Riverwalk for some fresh air and exercise. Though the wind was blowing, the air was cool, and the ground soggy, I was shocked that in the luminous half-light of the darkening evening there was no one else on the path enjoying the night.

Thus comes the downside of our endless evenings--the short hours of sunshine during winter. Alas, they are coming.
