Dear Friends,

"Solstice":  from the Latin word "solstitium", meaning "sun stands still".

The summer solstice was also known as Litha.  Nearly every agricultural society marked the high point of summer, the longest day of the year, the sun at its zenith and fullest power. British humor quips that it's all down hill from here.

The Celts celebrated with bonfires – lots of them.

Are we aware of when we're at our highest power?  Does that feel bitter-sweet? And yet the sun never stops.  It's light may be cyclical, but its light and gifts are constant.

Today, give yourself permission to revel in your own glory.


Summer Solstice - June 21, 2017

The eye of summer is my eye;
the heart of summer, my heart.
Standing still, I  reach perfection -
the enemy of my greatness.
