The longest day of the year for those residing in the northern hemisphere. June 21st marks the summer Solstice also known as Litha. Symbolically, observing the light that is all around us, the abundance of blessings, flowers blooming, birds singing, fruit growing, the climax of the lands growth before the fields are harvested.

For some, the changing of the seasons reminds us to reflect on the seasons of our life. Midsummer is a time when we know better, we have grown wiser, and are no longer that wet behind the ears little kid we once were. From this moment on we begin to slow down, the days move toward the sleepy timing of winter.

It’s not winter yet! Today We Party!
