"And Whose blood is that in your chalice?"

Many mulberries gave their lives for that blessing ...

Probably not what Ian Anderson (of Jethro Tull) had in mind when he sang about the "crimson wonder" but as a carnivore, I only go so far ...

You know it's summer in Tucson when:

The cold water is warmer than the hot water.

You find yourself drinking a gallon of water before ten in the morning.

The mountains are on fire.

Cacti are wilting.

Vulcan conserves fuel by using the sun to heat his forge.

You can fry eggs on the sidewalk. Or the dirt. Or your neck, if you forget the sunscreen.

Satan takes an Alaskan cruise.

Even Hill's tastes cool and refreshing.
He who would sacrifice liberty for security deserves neither.

The Solstice is our wedding anniversary, which makes it easy to remember. :-)

We were married in an Oak grove by a methodist minister. Talk about mixing yer metaphors.

It was a Thursday, at the actual time of the solstice. 11:43 am, 1:12pm, the time escapes me.

"bout to head on out to celebrate with a bonfire on the beach"

I burned a whole bunch of lavender culled from last year's growth. Smelled fine.

Photo - Green Man chalice - note the fly on the rim, wanting a taste of the crimson wonder.

Summer? Oh boy! Does that mean it will stop raining every day and start being 90-degrees with 80% humidity now? I love DC! No, really.

Had the longest winter since we moved here, the coldest spring, now the dreariest, wettest summer. 15 of last 21 days-RAIN!! Even built a fire in the fireplace yesterday to chase the blahs.
Suck the Folstice this year. Usually I love it. Now it's just a reminder that the days are getting shorter.

It's my mother's birthday, and the longest day of the year -- try to explain yourself out of forgetting both of those! Guess I'm screwed. At least it's the shortest night of the year to figure it out!

"Come away, O human child!
to the waters and the wild
with a faery, hand in hand,
for the world's more full of weeping
than you can understand..."
-W. B. Yeats
