June 21, 1948

Today is the summer solstice.  And my dad’s birthday.  Sol + stice derives from a combination of Latin words meaning “sun” + “to stand still.”  As the days  lengthen, the sun rises higher and higher until it seems to stand still in the sky.

This will be the longest day of our calendar year… it has always coincided with my Dad’s birthday, they fall on the exact same day.  Here is a picture which is in remembrance of him and my attempt of combining two pictures so that time “stands still.”

This was our last family picture taken of all us together in May 2009.  The accuracy is amazing.  The memory is a good.  And this is how he would want to be remembered.

Happy Birthday Dad!
