Peaks and valleys
Muse #565 - the ones that we do not think about
Tuesday, August 10, 2022
We often remember the solstices. June 21 starts summer, September 21 starts autumn, December 21 starts winter, and March 21 starts spring. But these are bookends. The beginnings and ends of theoretical patterns of changes.
This Sunday was a blistering hot day. At least from Canadian standards of what hot locally is. The temperatures hit around 35-37 Celsius with humidity sending it out to the mid-forties-like feeling. But all the same, this day marked a pattern too. It was the last day of predicted thirty-plus weather and a turning point. A final peak of the year. And then it starts all the way downhill from the middle of August peaks to the middle of February lows at the coldest end.
If one is looking at patterns, here are the real turn-in on patterns. The max and the minimum weather drops every few weeks by a few degrees celsius, but we don’t celebrate these days. As beginnings and endings. As peaks and valleys. As highs and lows. There are indeed a lot of twists and turns.
But you can, if you look closely enough. There are a variety of patterns to discover every day that could help with how one perceives the world around you. If you care to.
