Thank you.  Nice to know that there are "others" around.

May Spirit be kind and always smile upon you.


Peace

There are a lot of ways that folks could celebrate the summer Soltice aside from what has been done in the past.

I feel it would be fun to celebrate by planting a tree.

Or going to the beach to have a picnic.

Some ideas from this thread:

Devin said, Hard to think it is mid year here at the 2019 PDC with seeing our breath this morning. But the sun going down at 10ish at night definitely drives the point home.



James said, I enjoyed watching the sun rise this morning, and how far to the northeast it rose from my perspective and location on the globe. Observing celestial events as the seasons change and progress us something I really enjoy.



Jay said,
I'm going to dinner at a friend's this evening, and I'm making Deviled Eggs - the "sunniest" think I could think of!]/quote]

I try to mark the long evenings by organizing a hike with friends after work.

Something that I "feel" the need to share

I will have my ritual of thanks with an offering of dried flowers and herbs to the seven directions.  I will thank Spirit for all the lessons over the many turns of the Wheel, these teachings have turned into knowledge, which with turns of the Wheel have become wisdom, and now at this point in life is slowly becoming understanding.

With this gift of understanding I now realize that I am and have been for sometime at:

Peace

It is my greatest wish that all will at some point find their own Peace.
