3. Wishing I was there instead of here. We are getting a bit of heavy downpours.

Liquid sunshine.

Not after what happened last year.

7. I'm embarrassed to say I had never heard of Litha

and I'm 65 years old. And I'm of Celtic ancestry through both my father and mother. I'm glad I learned something new today.

10. I didn't remember what it was called until I googled it.

At 66 I still enjoy learning now more than ever because research is so easy.

12. It's probiotic and

 

comes with its own set of yaglama sticks (is it okay to mention those?).
You apparently can get it here.

edit: this was in response to #11 but not worth starting over for

13. Yes! The full line of Vermont Pleasures!

I'd love to comment further but I'm afraid I'd be wading into verboten territory.

I found them at the awesome (and very NSFW) Liartown tumblr, so alas, I don't think these are actually available and we'll just have to fashion our own yaglama sticks (watch out for splinters).

14. in bed. I would have liked

 

to have gone to the Summer Solstice Street Party in Rockland yesterday, but had to work.

I considered going to the Summer Solstice music festival in Portland later today, but the deluge has arrived.

So I guess I'll be doing laundry and maybe mop a floor or two. And nap.

15. Not Seals & Crofts: MARK KNOPFLER!

My wife and I are going to see Mark Knopfler in concert this evening down in K÷ln (Cologne).

Normally, June 21 is a sad day for me because the days only get shorter from now on until late December, and I am definitely a day person. As it is, one advantage of being in Northern Europe this time of year is that there is still light outside at 10:00 PM. I often leave for work between 4:30 and 6:00 AM, and I love it that I can do that in daylight for a few months. Three hours' flight north of here, the sun doesn't even set for a month. I've been up in Kiruna to see that, and it is some kind of weird. The downside is that in the winter, there is only about 5 or 6 hours of daylight per day, and up in northern Scandinavia, there is none at all for about a month. This is what Norwegians call "m°rketiden (the dark time)," and is the time of year when most suicides occur. I can imagine why.

16. Bringing bananas and reruns.

 

Bananas must sense the solstice 'cause they harvest themselves. Plus, I miss the good old days of good old music.

I'll Play for You, is beautiful, but Summer Breeze needs to be added to your thread. So pretend that I added it.
