I don't have a ritual this year for this high holy day of yore.
It may be called Mid-Summer, but the calendar calls it First Day of Summer.
elder friend from Denmark tells of sitting by the shore late into the
night with a bonfire on the rocks or on rafts that floated out to sea.
countries do "pole dancing" as well as jumping bonfires. I've always
associated these dances with the May Day or Beltain celebrations.
I must have more Celtic roots than they do.
Whatever you do, try
to spend some of the time in a natural setting, with stars overhead, and
maybe lightning bugs blinking around the trees and bushes.
And remember all life is connected, so just as the stars shine on us, we can shine to others.
Take a deep breath, smell whatever you have in your environment that feeds your lungs, your spirit. That's why it's called in-spir-ation.
To add your comment, just read down to the bottom of a single day's post, then click on "No Comments" or (# number of) comments. I'll check daily to see if there are comments (usually more often) and then publish them to the blog. Sorry, I can't post comments if you are "anonymous" but there's an easy solution. Just sign up for a blog, then you'll have a recognized name (of your choice) and can make comments and join the fun! (It is free after all, and maybe you've been just waiting to be a blogger!)
