Tropic of Cancer - Page One

For what it's worth .. time right now is » 2:20 PM, here on the left coast. And this page is live.

Timestamp 2:20 PM for Saturday, 20 June 2020, San Diego time, summer solstice

Today is the summer solstice. The word solstice means 'sun stopping.'

This is the exact moment when the sun appears to reach its northerly-most point of 'travel.'

World map clearly identifies Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn

( It's really just a cool illusion .. because you and I here on planet earth, we are actually the ones doing the traveling. )

I am talking about the point-of-travel where the sun arrives directly over southern Baja California.

This is the point where it comes closest to those of us living here to the north  ..

.. and then appears to turn around and head back south .. to the distant land of Capricorns .. that time is » 2:43 PM. So we got another 23 mins or so.

Time stamp 11:51 pm Pacific Daylight (13 June 2020) and this page is live.

I have not yet written anything here .. but I will be very shortly.

"What am I planning to write in this entry?" you ask? .. here in this page with such an inviting title?

I am sure that you will not be able to handle it.

My previous entry was posted on 19 Mar 2020. It is titled » Extreme Levels of Inequality Exert Unsustainable Levels of Stress Upon the Very Fabric of Society.

As coincidence would have it, this is the same day that the governor of California, Gavin Newsom, issued an order to shutdown the state in response to the CoVid-19 pandemic .. the first such state to do so.
