Endless Summer Solstice

Summer Solstice Greetings from Arborea!
May YOU...wake always with the sunlight making rainbows in your eyelashes, May you cup cool clear water in your hands and feel the sacred wetness upon your face and know that water itself is life, may you stop your thoughts and let the song of the birds take over your consciousness, May you walk barefoot in the dew and remember being three again, May you greet the one you love with a brilliant smile that shines like the Solstice dawn. goodnight, good morning, endless summer....
