This week's prompt: Solstice
What does the Solstice mean to you? How do you celebrate it? How does it affect you as you transition into the summer months (or winter, depending on where you are)?
Having grown up on the west coast, Summer was always a hit and miss time of year. It was great when it was sunny, but it rained a lot, which meant that I really appreciated those hot days by the water. Nowadays I live in an area that very much has four seasons and I find summer to be far more pronounced in this region. Days when it reaches 32 C plus humidity are far more common in this area. It's a time of lazy summer days, less likely by the water though, which sucks!
I love summer. Waking up to warm days and cool, shady breezes. It's a time of harvesting the fruits and enjoying them; literally and spiritually. I'm so happy to see the wheel turn and to be giving birth in this time of abundance.
I hope you all have a lovely Solstice this week! This is likely to be my last circle for a while, so I know I'll be sure to make the most of it!
