A smooth solstice
Did anyone else do a whole lot of dreaming last night? I did, certainly. It's traditional to have magical dreams at midsummer, of course. In mine, I was set to go on a long cruise with an old lover, a violinist I was involved with when I lived in San Francisco. That was another life! It was so good to see him. He said, "Well, we're going to have plenty of time to get reaquainted." Oh yeah. Woke up smiling.
It's cloudy, moody and muggy in DC today, not a great day to walk around taking pics. My plan is to engage in domestic pursuits, though of course I'll get out there at some point to experience the day.
Sometimes the solstices feel very extreme to me - as perhaps they should, since the days don't get any longer than this, the nights can't get any shorter. This summer solstice feels calm and peaceful.
Or maybe it's my heart I'm talking about. Ya think?
