happy summer solstice!
aaaah, i love summer, don’t you? the solstice to me is truly midsummer, not the beginning. however, i will know it is summer in my bones after they have soaked up a significant amount of sunshine, been washed clean by a river and simmered gently in hotsprings. and that, my friends, is on the schedule for this weekend.
today i am celebrating by harvesting garlic (wondrous!), and then this evening i am going to point reyes to hear caroline casey give her solstice address on “the mythic news of now.” (if you’ve never tuned in to “the visionary activist show“, caroline combines pragmatic mysticism, political activism and irreverence. love her! and i need some of her perspective- altering, sparky juju to help me get my feet back in the stirrups of positive change since they slipped out in the wake of the gulf oil super disaster).
today is also outdoor challenge monday, and while we have spent lots of outdoor time the last two weeks… we have neglected to bring along the camera. so imagine fern at the sutro baths, in the garden, at golden gate and duboce park and at the beach. and now please enjoy some pictures of how we are steeped in summer.
what are your plans for the summer?
have a great solstice week!!
