Happy Summer Solstice my friends.
Litha is a time of beauty, strength, energy, rejoicing in the warmth of the sun and the promise of fruitfulness to come. Carefree days, when the living is easy, but faintly tinted with the knowledge that the days begin to shorten and winter begins its slow approach.
I celebrated with friends and their families, a day at the beach and so much food.
It was my first big group of guests at the new house... didn't have enough chairs, plates, forks or room... but goodness we had fun.
The three ladies who came to visit have been my dearest friends since the first day of Year 7, back in 1984 (yes, 34 years ago!!). Our numbers have multiplied the with addition of husbands and children since then, but its still the same old us. Blessed to have them in my life.
