I quite like the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. Although, the excitement is coupled with the early sorrow that the days are getting only shorter after this point onward.
As my left ankle has yet recovered from the injury last summer, I just spent the long day crafting things outside. It sucks not to be back on my bike often but I’m trying to just do what I can now.
Another thing that sucked recently was this chunk of metal I crafted.

But it went to waste due to my misreading material warp under weld heat. I will improve the design next time. Lessons learned the hard way.
In order to get ready for this day after such troubles, I threw a pre-solstice pork party.
It definitely helped me get through the day. In the end, you are what you eat, and good food is key to inspiration.
