Pagan Rituals

It’s the first day of summer, the solstice began a few hours ago. We, in the mid-Atlantic states, are sun challenged.  It’s rained for 17 out of the last 21 days.  Plants are yellowing, pots are saturated and lawns are very, very green.

Even though I avoid sun exposure, I want to be a sun worshiper.  I don’t need to align myself with any particular group, I just want to bask in its golden warmth.  I want to be sun kissed.  Since it’s not happening naturally, here’s my offering in the hope that the weather gods will grant my humble request to change the soundtrack to the Beatles’  ‘Here Comes the Sun’.

  1. Susan, That was such a lovely post. And what a nice tribute to the sun on the summer solstice. It certainly seems you deserve some SUN yourself after writing such an interesting article.

    May the sun shine on you soon. 😉 Teresa

  2. Great new look and homage to our fearless sun:
    “Even after all these years, the sun never says to earth, ‘You owe me.'” according to one of those Suffi poets from the 13th century.

    Working on a new mark for EnergyScapes. Our advisor feels our branch is not working from a distance. She wants a more clean, crisp look.

    What do you think of “Plan . Transform . Nurture” ?

  3. Douglas–Thanks for the quote and I love ‘Plan|Transform|Nurture’ exactly what you and your Energyscapes team does. I’m in awe.
