Happy Summer Solstice to All…

with 4 comments

…and man, do we need it.

Folks, my hope for everyone is that the Summer Solstice (in the Northern Hemisphere) will bring about a positive change.

For me, this is when I start intensively thinking about my husband Michael. Because on this date in 2002, we’d taken out our marriage license. And we celebrated over the weekend as best we could, knowing we would marry on the 24th, which was also the night of a full moon as best I can recall.

We had the whole world to look forward to, then…love, happiness, spiritual fulfillment, the joy of creativity, the joy of emotional and physical and mental and spiritual harmony, and the fun of being around Michael — the funniest, most intelligent, most spiritual and most everything person I have ever known.

I wish our journey together had been longer than a bit over two years. But I will never regret marrying him. Marrying Michael was the best thing I have ever done, and I am very happy that I get to remember him in the ways that I do — at the height of his creative powers, and at his happiest and most content.

For us, the Summer Solstice of 2002 was extremely beneficial.

May your Summer Solstice of 2018 be equally generous.

  1. Barb,

    Michael sounded like an amazing man. I’m sorry that due to circumstances your marriage was cut short at 2 years, but I’m so glad you can look back and remember the good. Wishing you the best summer solstice.

    • Thanks, Sonyo. You would’ve liked Michael. And I think he’d have liked you, too. 🙂 Blessings and happiness to you.

    • I tried to, Sadaf.

      Wish I hadn’t had to, mind. (I’d much rather Michael was still alive.)
