I woke up at 5:00am to celebrate the Sun God. I did what I’ve done for the last few years: drank sweet French vanilla coffee, ate an orange, got dressed and drove to the nearest running trail. I sat on cool ground and faced east. I kept my eyes closed for a while, praying that the renewing flames of the Sun God cleansed my soul.
I opened my eyes when a change in light told me the King had awakened. I ran east with all the might I could muster, telling myself that every step was going to bring new wonderful things to my life. I stopped 4 miles later, said a silent prayer and ran back to my car feeling renewed.
I got home and fired up my laptop to read my emails as I cooled down. A HUGE smile formed on my face as I read the “Happy Midsummer” subject lines from Pagan and non-Pagan friends. Then my smile got even bigger when I clicked on Marcia Colette’s blog. She has honored me and 7 other bloggers with a Friends award. Thanks so much Marcia, you are such a darling.
I pass this award to 8 very special blogger friends:
- Cogent Ascending: who has taken the art of speaking his mind to exciting new levels.
- Discovering Paganism: I love this girl’s nonsense approach to live and to Pagan spirituality.
- Following the Willowisp: for sounding like the professor I’ve always wished I had.
- Monsieur le Roi: for being so ‘real’ and for telling me all about the good food and good fun he gets to have around my old neighborhood—I’m green with good old envy!
- Pixie's World of Wonder: she is super sweet and her warmth is contagious ;)
- Quaker Pagan Reflections: I’m just learning so much from reading your writing.
- The Dark Whisper: for struggling on the path to publication with yours truly.
- Written In Earth: thanks for enriching my Eclectic Pagan Vault.
Today, I celebrated Midsummer by letting the Sun God feed my body and mind with his rejuvenating rays. I also celebrated new friends. How do you celebrate this wonderful day?
