Summer Solstice Blessings!



Let’s express our gratitude for warmth of the long summer days,
abundance of blossoming world, and life-giving light of the Sun.
It is a time to celebrate our own spiritual light and let it shine
brightly manifesting our love, compassion, creativity and dreams.
For our friends living in the Southern hemisphere,
wishing you a happy Winter Solstice and
a smooth transition into a winter season.

Rise up, and do begin the day’s adorning, . . .




“Rise up, and do begin the day’s adorning,
The little eastern clouds are dapple grey,
There will be wind among the leaves today,
It is the very promise of the morning.”

From “June,” Hilaire Belloc.

Solitude isn’t loneliness.




“Solitude isn’t loneliness.
Solitude is when the entire serene universe
seems to surround and hold you quietly.”
