Wool in June

I've coined a new term: seasonal dissonance--the uncomfortable feeling caused by the lack of agreement between the season I'm experiencing and the season I associate with this month.

June was always one of my favorite times of year. The school year was over and the long, sunny, days of summer stretched out in front of me.

Today it's drizzling and in the 40's. The sun rose at 8 am and set before 6 pm. Not too bad for the end of November, but odd for the end of May.

Yesterday we listened to Vince Guaraldi's music from A Charlie Brown Christmas. Perfect for the weather but Christmas isn't just around the corner. In fact C.S. Lewis might have had Argentina in mind when he wrote about a land where it was "always winter and never Christmas."

It's going to be disconcerting to wear wool in June, but I look forward to pulling out my flip-flops in November.
