Summer Solstice Celebration

Goodbye Spring. Hello Summer. Happy Solstice.



This grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never all dried at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal sunset, eternal dawn and glowing, on sea and continues and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls. - John Muir

The summer night is like a perfection of thought. - Wallace Stevens



Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time. - John Lubbock


In June, as many as a dozen species may burst their buds on a single day. No man can heed all of these anniversaries; no man can ignore all of them. - Aldo Leopold



In summer, the song sings itself. - William Carlos Williams



I walk without flinching through the burning cathedral of the summer. My bank of wild grass is majestic and full of music. It is a fire that solitude presses against my lips. - Violette Leduc, Mad in Pursuit

In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer. - Albert Camus
