Don't be afraid of the dark. Robert Cray said that. I agree: We should not fear the dark. We should fear only the Creator—not the creation.

While I do not fear the dark, I do dislike the dark! Summer is my favorite season. I like the warmth, the long days, and the short nights. I enjoy rising early and staying up late. As summer fades into fall, the days shorten significantly, and the nights become longer. Rising early loses its allure: It is dark!

The days are becoming shorter, the nights are becoming longer, and the warmth of summer is quickly mutating into the cool mornings and evenings of fall. I am reminded once again of my disdain for cold air and darkness.

I shall survive: Next summer is a mere 276 days away!
