Blessed Litha!

The U.S. Naval Observatory puts the upcoming summer solstice at 7:28 AM EDT on June 21, 2010. Hail the conquest of light, greetings to Ra, hail the luscious bloom of Nature!

Wishing each of your a blessed Litha,

Mohamed

  1. Thanks for the reminder. I always mean to remember summer solstice and usually forget. I'll have to try to take advantage of longer daylight hours today.

  2. Thank you so much for your warm wishes on this day. I hope it brings lots of good things your way.

    (You really do have such a way with words - a certain "flowyness" :) )

  3. Thanks, Arlee! BTW, I'm intrigued with your list of your dozen favorite movies. There's certainly some variety in there, a mix of depth and humor, a little bit of heaven with sprinkles of hell.

  4. Dear WritingNut,

    Thanks for the kind words! It’s not often that someone can make an existentialist absurdist with nihilist tendencies blush, but you just did it! :)

  7. Thanks, Phoenix! I bet the stars are just brilliant out there in LA.

    Best wishes to you with your acting, writing and photography (oh, if I only had the energy to do even ONE of those things). :)

  12. Thanks, Medeia! Yes, the extra hours of light are a great chance to hike, garden, or just sit out with the dogs.

    Speaking of long summer days, Ramadan starts on August 11th this year...now there are some long summer FASTS! :)
