Happy Summer Solstice, everyone!

Here are several offerings for your contemplation:

"Our fear of death is like our fear that summer will be short, but when we have had our swing of pleasure, our fill of fruit, and our swelter of heat, we say we have had our day."
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson

"We need society, and we need solitude also, as we need summer and winter, day and night, exercise and rest."
-- Philip Gilbert Hamerton

"Do what we can, summer will have its flies."
--Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time."
-- John Lubbock

"There shall be eternal summer in the grateful heart."
-- Celia Thaxter

"In summer, the song sings itself."
-- William Carlos Williams
May you all enjoy today's amazing, extented light. Celebrate the earth. And pray for her - however you do so.
