NASA released this video last week, depicting three years of the sun in three minutes. There is a guide here to eclipses and major flares you’ll see.
Fascinating to watch, though I am by no means a sun worshiper. I am a sun avoider.
My freckled skin has never tanned. It burns to a crisp, then returns to a naturally pale state.
Every summer of my childhood resulted in at least a few painful sunburns. I don’t think I discovered sunblock until I was in my teens, but by then I was already resolutely avoiding the sun.
Now living in the land of 300 Days of Sunshine per year, I spend most summer days indoors. I try to fit all my outdoor activities into the hours before 10 am or after 6 pm. When I do go out, I wear a wide brimmed hat and stalk the shade.
How do you feel about the sun? Are you a sun bather or a shade seeker?
