I just love rolling off my tongue; summer solstice. There is something lyrical and magical about, as well as it is my favorite season of all–even hot humid days. Our day in the Mid-Atlantic started off with a 5:41 am (not up yet) sunrise, but our day of sun got cut short by a huge thunderstorm that wielded it's way through the area, cutting off the longest day of the year in sunbeams to Earth. But I'll take it.
Last year I strapped myself into a dining room chair to write and write and write some more. Bill too. We took a lunch break and a walk/run around the Crofton Parkway most every day. Everything was tentative. The most weird summer of my life. I really wanted the summer of 2020 to be special. It was in a whole different way by losing my mom in July and a raging Virus.
Hopefully, we can celebrate 2021 like today's Solstice, June 21, 2021. A different year. Different dreams. Summer plans in the making for fun in the sun.
