Summer Solstice 2018

Ah, the longest day of the year!  Celebrate the Sun and its Life-giving Power!  Except that it’s a very rainy day here…

Surely we should be in more awe of the Sun, the heart of our Solar System.

We’ve wandered far from the Ancient Egyptians, Aztecs, Incas, Hindus, and Greeks (and Babylonians, and Sumerians…and just about every tribe and nation) who all worshiped the Sun as God.

Nowadays, we don’t see Helios in his chariot drawn by fiery horses, we see ultraviolet rays that can cause skin cancer, and we run for our sunscreen.

We know so much about the Sun’s structure, that some of the Magic is gone, but the facts are still impressive.

Even in the rain, we can be Grateful that behind all those clouds, that lucky ol’ sun is still rolling around heaven all day..

 

Peace
