Summer Solstice


Summer Solstice was yesterday, June 21, 2013…the official beginning of Summer…the longest day of the year. The time when we soak up the sun and daydream about lazing summer vacations, forming them like castles in the sand. And it is the change in season where we turn to the Sun and reap its warmth…to carry with us into the cold of Winter. The Solstice turns my thoughts to how seasons change within us…and how it is a time to rejoice, for a moment, our emergence from the cold into the Spring, when seeds are tossed, to sprout in the Summer Sun. To celebrate our growth and reward our weary souls…with a pint, perhaps? Here’s Wishing Everyone A Dazzling Summer!

In honor of Summer Solstice, and the annual Supermoon that follows it, I have posted some groovy pictures for your enjoyment. The Solstice, when the sun sits longest and highest in the sky, occurred on June 21st. The Supermoon…which only occurs once a year, will peak on June 23rd. The Moon will be it’s closest to the Earth…so go have a look. I think it is a glorious site, I enjoy every year!
