Summer Solstice is here and the word I need to use is glorious.
It's been muggy and sticky most of the day, and now it is storming. The wet weather is adding a shine to all. The cherries are not ripe although everything else is weeks ahead. I'm surprised but not disappointed. The cherries will come. I had the day off work, I had a massage, it's all been lovely. Heck I am even eating rice for dinner. It's a holiday after all and that's a time for treats. I spent a good chunk of the day reveling in sympathetic joy.
All of the above are lovely and I am grateful but glorious? Luminous even? They don't seem to match up exactly. But then the sum of the parts.... can be magical - luminous and glory-full.
There is a shift happening and I am opening my arms to it. Here we go.
Happy solstice [and summer perhaps] to all!
