Summer Solstice

Today in the northern hemisphere we experience the most hours of daylight for this year. In my valley, we are also gifted with blue skies, mild temperatures, and 25-30 mph winds. We’ll batten down the hatches, and enjoy stealing moments outdoors in sheltered areas, because we know that in about six months, on the shortest day of our year, we’ll have forgotten the “breeze” and will be longing for the light and warmth.

May the cycles of the seasons bring joy, as they remind us that nothing is permanent: not wind, rain, or sun; not sadness or grief; not pleasure or comfort; everything changes, including us.
