Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored," where we welcome the many thousands of gods and goddesses, most forgotten, who have inspired and protected the human race since its ancestors crawled onto the savannah.
Today is Summer Solstice, a bittersweet day if you crave sunlight. For now the days will begin to grow shorter, even as the weather warms. But mindful of my legions of readers Down Under, I'm sure you've been anticipating this moment, so now you get the rays!
Here is a lovely Solstice prayer, courtesy of a neat website with the fabulous name of Mything Links:.
"...I, Chief Arvol Looking Horse of the Lakota, Dakota and Nakota Nation, humblely ask that the spirit of great Nations help us to heal our sacred Mother Earth (Unci Maka). I call upon other Spiritual Leaders and Ancient Storytellers to work together on this urgent effort!"
So might it be.
