Summer Solstice Today

Life without a purpose is a languid, drifting thing
Every day we ought to review our purpose, saying to ourselves
"This day let me make a sound beginning."
~~Thomas Kempis

Ah ha, the season of summer is upon us. The garden is in full swing now. So, why not take advantage of the flowers and plants that are available to us and work a little magic with the spirits of nature and the tides of the moon as we celebrate this lush and fertile season of summer?

Today, to be exact at 7:59 PM EDT in the Northern Hemisphere, is the summer solstice--the turning point of June--the longest day and shortest night of the year. As the days lengthen, the sun rises higher and higher until it seems to stand still in the sky. In celebration, will you gather to light a sacred fire, welcome the sunrise, and stay up all night to welcome the dawn, with folklore and rituals that mark the much-awaited long, bright days of Midsummer? Maybe it's the fireflies or blazing barbecue...the long, lazy days, and warm nights that follow...all the fresh, juicy fruits, and melty ice cream/popsicles...memories of flashlight tag and shivering under a towel after a long day of swimming...

I will be standing on an overlook gazing into the purest and most pristine place of power and meditating in Mount Pisgah. It is my hope that you will be there with me, in spirit, during this incredible time of transition.

Stop by here, if you will, for a peek at my latest lace creation...Happy living!

Hi Sarah! It looks like everyone in your family is having a wonderful summer! I adore the summer months!

P.S.- School is going well. I am learning a great deal in my behavior management class.

True learning-learning that is permanent and useful,that leads to intelligent action and further learning, can arise only out of the experience, interest, and concerns of the learner.

Real heroes are men who fall, fail and are flawed, but win out in the end because they stayed true to their ideals, beliefs and commitments.
