Summer Solstice!

sunflower297

Hello Summer!!! I don’t know about you all but I am lovin’ summer! June is my favorite month, in part because we are groovin’ right towards the longest, lightest, brightest day of the year…today! Oh summer how I love your green grass and true blue skies and the whir of sprinklers and robin song at dawn and the scent of iris and the taste of carbon on my tongue from grilled goodness and the feel of sun on my skin and the crack of an afternoon rainstorm…summer abundance! This little watercolor of the side view of a sunflower calls to mind the spirit of today’s amazing light. As does this lovely poem from Mary Oliver. Hope your day is filled with lots of paying attention to the beautiful details of this glorious season.

    Dear Fran,
    This is wonderful! June is my favorite time too, because of the long sunny days. Could it be because we are winter babies? I love the analogy of prayer to being in nature. And the urgent call to live every second. Thank you.

      Hi Sue! yes! I think it has something to do with being winter babies! I loved the analogy of prayer and nature, I feel that way all the time. Hope your summer is going well too!
