“…The summer solstice has become one of my favourite times of year. It tends to sneak up on me, coming so early before the European schools have closed for the year, when everyone is still “looking forward” to the summer.

This year is different though. My Midsummer Baby is due to arrive any day now. I’ve been looking forward to this weekend for many months, counting down the weeks, the days. And as the light lingers longer in the sky each night, we find any excuse to sit out on the balcony and take it all in. This time seems to hang heavy with significance—this moment before our lives are forever changed…”

Summer Solstice is this coming Saturday 21st. I’ve written about celebrating Summer Solstice here before. And if you’re interested in how this intertwines with Christian faith, my friend Kathleen had a great post last year about why and how she celebrates.

May the blessing of light be upon you – light without and light within.
