Soggy Solstice

Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored," wallowing in wetness since May Day!

Never seen anything like this weather pattern in all my life. While the rest of the U.S. bakes in a stationary front, we here in the Great Blue Northeast are socked into a cold, rainy pattern that shows no sign of shoving off into the Atlantic. This morning, June 21, it's too cool for Decibel the Parrot to sit on the porch.

Nevertheless, Spare and I are going to our summer solstice ritual with our Druid Grove. There's no way we'll be able to get a bonfire lit with everything so soggy. However, we of the big, broad, flexible outlook plan to bring a Yankee candle and some matches. Outside-the-box thinking.

May all of you enjoy the solstice, say goodbye to the sun as it begins its transit back south. Take this opportunity to shed yourself of all disturbing thoughts. Give your negative baggage to the sun -- to be burnt to a crisp, never to return.

Blessings to the deities of farm and field, to the produce we reap, to the health and safety of our families and friends. May there be peace throughout the world.

Blessings on your Summer Solstice.
We had a break in (also unusual) soggy conditions which prevailed on the week leading up to our Winter Solstice. Dry weather seems to have returned, with a sigh of relif from me. Winter's bad enough without rain as well.
Love,
Terri in Joburg

Solstice blessings! It poured yesterday morning, but by late afternoon it was windy, sunny, cool, and we had a lovely fire, surrounded by fireflies once it finally got dark. But I had a candle ready, as back up!

The ground may be soggy, but Sun should be smiling down on you! Blessed Solstice from this Episcopalian. :)

Um .. err .. yess .. we will welcome Sol (in all his/its glory) back into the southern hemisphere from now on, but pray that his/her/its heat will not dry up the watercourses that have been extant for time beyond record.

Apart from that.. the autumn rains have been good, here. The crops are looking healthy. Farmers are hoping for late rain to bring the heads into fruition.

May there be peace throughout the whole world! I was too sick for going out in the rain, but I'm sorry I had to miss you all. Solstice blessings to you. And maybe some sunshine. I hope.
