Sunrise 5:58am (EST), sunset 8:38pm (EST) at Melbourne, VIC, AU (14:39 hours daylight)

The second last work day of the year, time passes at a crawl. Walking down to the Nott. for lunch the cicadas were singing in the trees, the sun beating down on my head, the new native flower beds all in bloom around the gate. Definitely a good time to be anywhere except at work.
