"What is one to say about June, the time of perfect young summer, the fulfillment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade." —Gertrude JekyllSing a song of summer
Go outside this weekend!
If you're in the northern hemisphere, not only does the Summer Solstice fall on Friday, June 21, (1:04 AM EDT), the supermoon shines big and bright on Saturday and Sunday, June 22 and 23.
So, we have the longest day with the biggest, closest, fullest moon this year, immediately on its tail.
I'd say it's a good weekend to play outside. Take a nap in the heat of the day if you can. You have the rest of the day and night to welcome in the new season.
How about singing a song of summer? Make one up. Sing it to the big moon.
"In earlier times, so many people sang much more. You know as a kid you'd go to some kind of religious training and or summer camp or whatever it was and you'd learn to sing a lot of songs."One more day
