Day 185

Here are a few reasons why my favorite summer weather is overcast.

– It’s usually cooler so it’s easier to exercise outdoors.

– You don’t get sunburned.

– You can open your eyes wide, no need to squint.

– Everyone looks amazingly lit; sunlight diffused through clouds makes everyone moviestars through appropriate lighting.

– There is a certain excited tension in the air, the subtle dread of rain.  Drama.

– That little bit of noontime darkness gives the world a spectator’s mystique.  Like the whole universe is wearing sunglasses.

– I have an ancient childhood memory, intensely positive but blurry, of walking away from a suburban waterpark in North York as it’s about to rain.  It was the happiest moment of my life.  And I don’t know what happened in it
