Happy Midsummer

Dear Garden-mad Northern Hemisphere Friends,

Just a note to wish you a glorious and uninhibited and even frolicksome Summer Solstice on June 21st!

It’s the L-O-N-G-E-S-T daylight of the entire year, a day to dance and sing and throw flowers (get them out of the neighbors’ gardens, don’t wreck yours) and to run naked through the periwinkle!

Max goes a little nuts at the Summer Solstice. (And not a stitch on.)

The SunThis is the Sun card from the (US Games Systems)  Rider Tarot deck

The Sun is the important thing today, and I hope it’s shining gently upon you and your plants. Take your sox off or something, and run through the grass. Eat some chocolate. Cheers!

p.s.- If you live in the Southern Hemisphere of our dear planet then I hope you are having an awesome Mid-winter with lots of candles burning.

    Oh, to be a dog! What a happy and entertaining little guy you have there – thanks for sharing these hilarious photos of Max in a state of utter joy and abandon – completely appropriate to it being the most sunshine / daylight we can get it one day. Lead the way, Max!
