I never thought I would take a nearly 6-month break from blogging when I began this back in September. Alaska has bumped over the peak of the summer solstice and is now back to losing light every day, for which I am thankful.

Being a night owl, if I had to choose between the constant light or constant darkness, I'd choose the darkness. Maybe that says more about my personality than I'd care to admit, but there it is. I find myself more disoriented and sleep-deprived in the summer than I did in the winter. I feel at home in the comfort of darkness - more secure inside. Yeah I know, I'm weird.

So I'll stop with all the psycho-babble and get to posting some long-overdue pics for the one or two of you who still happen to stop by on occasion. I took these on June 21st at the Summer Solstice Festival downtown.

The main street - Cushman - running through downtown.

The folks in this pic above are panning for gold.

I checked out your Artic Cam last night late, it was still daylight out about 11:45pm.....Funny how being in the military with constant changes in life that the body has it's own time keeper reguardless what the clock says.

If it's any consolation, I feel more secure in the dimness of night as well. Do other night owls feel the same?
