"On the Cliffs" by Henry Ryland
...the longest day of the year, the shortest night. The wheel of the year turns and the traditional anticipation of summer is taking hold...
I adore this painting. It reminds me to keep looking forward, to be filled with anticipation and a searching soul. For reasons unknown ~ as I'm not much prone to ritual ~ I'm going to walk today (with dawg) to one of our special places, say some thank you's along the way to leafage, birdsong and the glorious sea air that surrounds us. A quiet celebration with only two feet and four paws yet one filled with gratitude ~ deep, deep gratitude.
Happy solstice, my friends!
