Happy Midsummer everyone!
For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, today is the day that the sun will reach it's highest point of the year. It's also a significant holiday for all our neo-pagan friends out there who will be celebrating in whatever manner suits them. Even though I don't practice paganism, I still can't help taking some time to reflect on the day that was an annual milestone for many of our ancestors.
Here's a clip from a solstice gathering last year at Stonehenge which illustrates how some modern pagans enjoy the holiday:
Today is a great day to light a candle and meditate, or share a meal with friends and family, or have a proper wild party in honor of the season. If you celebrate the solstice, I'd love to hear your plans for today.
