Midsummer


What a gorgeous evening to celebrate Midsummer.  The sun has come out in her fine blazing glory in honour of her longest day’s work.  After tomorrow, her days will get shorter and shorter and then Winter will arrive. 

Here’s how this blog celebrated the solstice last year and as I can’t improve on that, I will just leave you with a Wiccan Summer blessing.  I’m not Wiccan but there’s probably not much else that comes closer to my personal spiritual ethos than the non-judgemental, non-doctrinal Wiccan values towards nature, humanity and Mother Earth.  Wiccans seek to find harmony and believe that because of our intelligence, we have a duty to protect nature.  And that’s a good, good ethos to live by. 

Merriest wishes folks.

As the sun spirals its longest dance,
Cleanse us
As nature shows bounty and fertility
Bless us
Let all things live with loving intent
And to fulfill their truest destiny

Wiccan blessing for Summer

 

Turn your face to the sun and the shadows will fall behind you

  3. Sunday has been better here, but very windy! Even the weather folk don’t know what’s going on!

    Internet is quiet at the moment I’ve noticed. People are out in the fresh air! 🙂
