The Summer Solstice seems a paradox in the Northern Hemisphere as we are just beginning the summer months and in celebrating the longest day, we know from this point it begins to shorten. Just when we are beginning to get outdoors and enjoy the daylight in connection with the warmer weather too.The sun is at its highest point in the sky and all summer long it will get closer to us illuminating the pathways of the Earth and quite possibly shining a light on some things we didn’t see while in the dark and indoors. The Thomas Fogarty Vineyards in Woodside, CA celebrated the aspect of the sun standing still with a summer solstice tasting. They not only constructed a labyrinth, but one of unique design to host a walk and bring focus to the growing season. It is considered midsummer because it is half way between the planting and harvesting.
When considering the aspect of time, this is a significant day to reflect upon. May your solstice release the unwanted, receive the desired and reflect upon the time between
