A Poem for the Summer Solstice


They dance not for me
Yet mine is their glee!
Thus pleasure is spread through the earth
In stray gifts to be claimed by whoever shall find;
Thus a rich-loving kindness, redundantly kind,
Moves all nature to gladness and mirth.

~ William Wordsworth

Happy Summer!

Get Outside and Enjoy!

Today is a new day. It’s the first day of summer. Go for a walk, listen to the birds chirping. Take in the fragrance of the Earth. And resolve to keep fighting for what you believe in.” Dan Rather



” I allow myself to appreciate each moment for the richness it brings to my life.” Attitude of Gratitude


The Longest Day!

128I love daylight and sunshine. The summer solstice, the first day of summer, is one of my favorites. For those of us who live in the north country, these long days are our bonus for long dark winters! The sun rises about 5:10 A.M. and sets about 9:06 p.m.
Use the energy of the day to enjoy the outdoors. The birds are singing, and the butterflies are magnificent. It is a day to worship our beautiful earth!

Today is also Global Yoga Day: https://www.facebook.com/idayofyoga?fref=photo

I hope the sun is shining where you live, and wish you harmony and joy!
