What does the first day of summer mean to you? It’s a wake up call. Time is passing. Today the North Pole is tipped more toward the sun than on any other day. There will be lots of daylight here. Lot’s of time to get it right today. I’ll be spending time enjoying the sun, working and of course doing music. Any words of inspiration are welcome here. Thanks.
What causes summer? It’s not the distance from the sun. It is the tilt of the Earth’s axis. It’s the axial tilt. Essentially, Earth does not sit up perfectly straight as it spins like a top. Our blue planet leans as it rotates in the plane of its orbit.
As the year progresses, this lean causes the north and south part of the planet, to bask in different levels of sunlight. Thus some places are hot and some are cold.
