Finally, Summer!

"Summer afternoon -- summer afternoon, to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language."  H. James

Though culturally we've been in summer mode for a few weeks now, the season, scientifically, starts at the solstice -- that moment when the sun kisses the Tropic of Cancer before heading immediately (though slowly) back toward the south.  Of course, poetically and Earth-centrically, we think of the sun moving north and south; in reality the sun is pretty indifferent to the earth.  The earth, orbniting the star that to us means life, is tilted on its axis, always in the same direction.  As it hits the point in its journey 'round where the "top" is most tilted toward the sun, we have our solstice, our longest days, our seasonal transition.

This year, that moment occurs at 11:24 pm CDT on June 20... which means that the solstice actually occurs on June 21 in New York and June 20 in Chicago (and points west).  (Though we think of it as a day, the solstice is actually a moment, and it's the same moment glob-wide!)

I'll leave you with one more summer quotation:
"Summer is the annual permission slip to be lazy.  To do nothing and have it count for something.  To lie in the grass and count the stars.  To sit on a branch and study the clouds." R. Brett
Enjoy the lazy days of summer!

  1. After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don’t believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com or WhatsApp him +15068001647
