June 20 at 6:34 pm is the official time of the Solstice.
This is traditionally a time to celebrate the daylight and the gifts
of the sun, the plants we eat, and the flowers we enjoy.
How will you celebrate?
May is a playful time. The animals are playing, and humans are starting to get back to outdoor play, as well.
Here’s a playful sign I saw recently:
“Spring is here! I’m so excited I wet my plants!”
This is a photo of my beautiful granddaughter doing some plant watering.
How do you want to play this month?

If you have the opportunity to watch the Netflix film “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee”, I highly recommend it. It chronicles events in the 1800’s that affected the Lakota Sioux tribe. This is one of the worst atrocities committed by the government against indigenous people. The Pine Ridge Reservation continues to experience substandard housing, high unemployment, poor diets, and life expectancies under 50 years. Every winter people die on Pine Ridge because they are unable to stay warm in their houses. The Lakota are very spiritual people who don’t ask for anything. They continue to pray, not for themselves, but for the world.
