Seems to be a lull happening.. whereby a few people are ‘laying low’… oh and I am one. Only to discover this instagram post that feels to bear truth. Waiting, consolidating and preparing for a flurry of activity.
Creative freedom, financial freedom, personal freedom.. are themes that are lingering in the air.
Which brings us to… June 20th, Summer / Winter Solstice.
either of the two times in the year, thesummer solstice and the winter solstice, when the sun reaches its highest or lowest point in the sky at noon, marked by the longest and shortest days.
I never knew Solstice was celebrated until my son was enrolled at a Steiner / Reggio school. What a beautiful celebration it is. A coming together of people, feasting on winter foods and a lantern walk, enjoyed by adults and children.
Funny how there are public holidays for a Queen’s birthday. When traditionally celebrations were marked by seasonal / astrological events. Such as Chinese New Year and Easter.
It is now nice to have come to a natural way of life where things such as earth-time, (nature’s cycles) are acknowledged. And not just revolved around things such as what time does the department store close??? 🙂
Wishing all a joyful Solstice.
Happy Solstice 💜
