Our days are at their longest - the green and silver hours dim to twilight around 11pm and birds sing me awake with the full onset of daylight at 3 am, but no insomnia.

There is good change afoot in the family again, so I drop back asleep under my quilts until the alarm at 5am.

Across the Bay, morning clouds rise like yeasty dough to drape themselves in languid lovers embrace across Tonka Mountain and I begin the day grateful. Grateful to be one of the Living Ones, one of the Humans, even when it’s hard sorrow to be lived through as in mourning the death of old friends as we have done on this island lately. This beautiful summer light won’t last forever.
Happy Solstice to All! Hope you are walking in gratitude today.
