SUMMER SOLSTICE 2009Somervell County Salon-Glen Rose, Rainbow, Nemo, Glass....Texas


20 June 2009 at 10:58:57 PM

Tonight is the Summer Solstice, just after 12:46 am, CDT, 6/21, to be exact. A Solstice is an astronomical event that happens twice a year: in winter, when the earth is most inclined toward the Sun and in summer, when the earth has the greatest inclination away from the sun.  

The Solstice is a time for contemplation, meditation, renewed commitment and the setting of intentions. Let's pause this evening and tomorrow to set those intentions. There are many things one could pray for on this Solstice Eve. My special prayer tonight is that each and every one of us will recognize and honor our connection to all others and to the natural world as a fundamental and necessary requirement for wholeness. We have many things to learn. We have work to do. Let's do it.

Went outside last night and it was truly gorgeous outside. The stars were all out, the wind was blowing, and off in the distance, I could hear the Fossil Rim event bands playing.

Thank you for your inspirational thoughts. This season reminds me of the true cyclical, rather than lineal, nature of time. And the all embracing love and affection of a benevolent universe that joyfully gives us all the chances we need to get it right and be happy. We can never fall from grace. I wish all of us health and humor. Be kind and gentle to yourselves. You deserve it.

The power of what we all can do together is greater than anything I could possibly do by myself.

Thank you!
