You all know, I presume, that Aberdeen is about the same latitude as Juneau Alaska and places like that. Warmer, but the sun seems to go down farther nearly every day. It is low enough in the sky that it is inevitably in one's eyes whenever one faces south. That is, of course, when one can see the sun rather than just gray sky or clouds. I am beginning to discern and be happy about lighter shades of gray!
So, today, a beautiful sunny day! I was walking home from church in the beautiful ancient Kings Chapel, listening to a 40 voice college chorale and pipe organ (Aubertin). http://www.abdn.ac.uk/noblecollege/brief.htm#organ

The leaves are beginning to turn yellow, brown and reddish. Many trees have large clusters or umbrels of bright red berries. The roses are still blooming all over the parkways.
And at high noon I measured my shadow — 12 feet long. And I am just over 5' tall. So, those of you who are mathematicians can figure out the angle of the sun now.
