The time of the season

summer_solsticeJune 21, 2013 – Happy Summer Solstice to the folks in the Northern Hemisphere. Summer arrives today, when the Sun is directly over the Tropic of Cancer, ringing in the longest day of the day year.

For our friends in the Southern Hemisphere, today brings the exact opposite, marking the arrival of the Winter Solstice, or the shortest day of the year.

Whether you’re wearing short sleeves, or bundling up to face the cold, enjoy the day. As my Druid friends would say today, “Blessed be the solstice!”
