How kind! Thank you and Blessed be!
God will grant his blessing still, though we call her what we will.
We can name it whatso'ere, a spell is nothing but a prayer.
This one large rudiment, our faith defined by our intent.

It was a wonderful sunny day here. Thanks for the sentiment.

I celebrate that now the days get shorter and cooler. I'm a troglodyte by nature.

Can't believe its the solstice already, still cold, wet and overcast here in Scotland, when will summer arrive?

Blessed solstice, indeed! I celebrated, among other things, by cracking the seal on a Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban that I was saving for a special occasion. What a great taste and way to welcome the midsummer.

Here it's a sad occasion; there will be a decreasing amount of light, each day, threafter....

Was kilted for it and had full intentions of attending a local church's labyrinth walk to celebrate but by the time I got home from a difficult day at work stayed put. Nice though, the labyrinth is there for anyone to use at anytime and, for me, seems to work better with out a crowd of people. And thanks for remembering those of us that do still follow Olde Tyme Religions.

I never miss the solstice. Make it a point to be up before
sunrise and also watch the sun go down. We dont get that
many in a lifetime and never know how many remain for us.
