Friday Poem

Environmental & Science Education, Poetry, Art & Environment 

Ed Hessler

Good morning from Hamline University's Center for Global Environmental Education (CGEE) on September 3, 2021. Thirty-five weeks and one day have passed or 67.40% of the year.

Today sunrise is at 6:00 am and sunset is at 8:36 pm giving us 14 h 35m 36s of sunlight.

Just three days ago, September 1 meteorological fall began and September 22--18 days from now--it will be the Autumnal Equinox, the astronomical beginning of fall. For information about these two kinds of seasonal markers, astronomical and meteorological, see the entry from NOAA. Here are two lovely ways to celebrate this change from summer to fall: Vivaldi's Autumn from The Four Seasons and Autumn in New York.

According to Foodimentary it is National Baby Back Ribs Day, complete with a photo, facts and some food history.

Quote. Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence. -- John Adams

Today's poem is by Yehuda Amichai.
