The Thunder Moon is really rattling. Every day it seems, we have a thunder boomer.
And last night the sweetest rain to sleep by. zzzzzzzzzzzz.
Today is Father’s Day… may your memories be sweet and may you make new ones as sweet and juicy as this season’s berries.
Today’s the solstice, giving us a whole sweep of bright and shiny days with long hours of sun (over 15!) well, sun behind the clouds, because that’s what’s going on here! May we be illuminated… May we use the light to look clearly at what is going on in our world. May the beauty we see empower us and keep us strong in the face of the work to be done.
And there’s a lot of work to be done.
Today in my valley we will commemorate the nine who died in Charleston. We will pause and weep. We will decide what if anything we’re going to do to make a difference here. Or at least have a start at it. Let us remember those who died for no reason other than hatred. Our family has lost children. It’s awful. I can’t imagine losing children — or anyone — simply because they existed. To have them targeted and executed. Assassinated. May we be moved to act against the hate — and act in ways that make a difference.
Peace was never more urgent; never more confusing. Let us Peace.
