I have the impression that the early days of 2008 one by one went out to buy cigarettes, never to be seen again. My nostalgic mind wondered night after night outside, watching the stellar constellations shift across the sky with the majestic speed of a 1986 modem. And finally, it is all lining up all right: summer solstice. The axis of our little space vessel is now most oriented toward our private star: the Sun .
Solstice, (Latin for the sun stands still) announces the beginning of my favorite season: the summer. The ancients lighted big bonfires , and simply enjoyed all kinds of warmth in celebration of a hot season. It’s summer. Enjoy it.
