Summer Solstice

Summer solstice is the first day of summer. It’s also the longest day of the year. I was lucky enough to celebrate summer solstice in Anchorage, Alaska for 2014 and the sun refused to go down. It just became something like twilight for a few hours. It never got dark. I never saw stars. Summer solstice is a holiday in Anchorage. The whole city comes out to celebrate with music, dancers, art, food, and festivities. They got the Spin Doctors to come out and play their two-and-a-half hits and a bunch of filler material in a free concert. And in case you were wondering, yes, there were a lot of hippies and awkward dancers struggling to move to the beat. I’m writing this article right around midnight and it’s still light outside. That sounds awesome until you realize that your body clock is warped and you can’t fall asleep for the life of you. That’s what’s when awe turns into insomnia.
