AS LONG AS SUMMER LASTS
According to earth’s axis of rotation in relation to the sun, in 2018 summer will last 93 days and 15 hours… now, isn’t that accurate? That figure has probably brought to mind ideas, memories, sensations: the sea, the sand, sweat, carelessness… 93 days and 15 hours of calm and sunshine …and then you realise you are in London, and your summer will probably last 10 days total. Sometimes a concept doesn’t match reality.
Summer, as with many other concepts, is taken for granted and it takes up its own place within the global ‘reality’. This place is determined by certain assumptions that attempt to capture the world by categorising perception and encapsulating emotions. Nevertheless we start sweating at different temperatures, we experience time in different speeds, you may hate the seaside and sadly my holidays will probably be shorter than yours.
