Sunshine of My Love
Today is Summer Solstice...a most ancient Holy Day...what I call a Power Day! What signifies power better than the rising and setting sun...especially on this it's longest day to circle our humble heads!
The official day to kick off summer...and all its glorious memories and stories yet to unfold this summer of 2009...Summer Solstice and its dark-side twin...Winter Solstice are two of my favorite markers for my life.
This day is also Father's Day for those who are lucky enough to be called so (I am)...and even luckier to still have one around (which I don't). But everyone knows that Father's Day will never "stack-up" to Mother's Day. As much as we knuckle dragging, penis swinging, son of the great ape Adam try to hold onto power...we're no match for the endless mysterious of Mother Earth and her minions of spell weaving enchantresses!
Sir Dayvd made the pilgrimage to Stonehenge last year at this time, so I'm not sure if he has already welcomed the sun over the Stone like the billions of souls who have done so since it was built...but I like to think that our English Honorary Founding Father is representing the KMSA along with the Druids, New Age Air Heads, Curious Tourists, Loyal Fans, and Hung Over Mates!
We'll be walking these Sacred Grounds ourselves in just a few short weeks. It will be exactly 30 years since I last melded with the Stones...I can't wait for the return trip. I am grateful on this day as I write this blog while listening to Bono singing "Sunshine...Sunshine. Standing between midnight and a doorway. Speed dialing with no signal. Go and shout it out...escape yourself and gravity. On the edge of the known universe I wanted to be. Restart and reboot yourself. You're Free to GO!" From their song, Unknown Caller, on No Line On the Horizon.
So, I pack my bags in Columbus, OH...go work out...take a shower...and drive 5 hours back to begin the Summer with the Sunshine of My Love! Yes, I would like Cream with that!
