I give thanks everyday for these words that save my soul
I only got the sunny hours, the brightest hours of day
I never count the gloomy hours, I let them slip away
That's what Long Beach Dub All Stars sing. I don't think they live in Pennsylvania. I'm almost sure of it.
So Happy Summer Solstice, right? Here's a little Asude for you, Solstice is derived from the Latin words, Sol - Sun, duh and Sistere which means to stand still. So basically this is the day of the year that the Sun is supposed to stand still the longest so we can have a really long day. This is also conviently located very closely to my birthday and seeing as the Sun is my God of choice I think it is so fitting. Twist! Did you remember my birthday is coming up? I'm not sure if I've mentioned it. Anyway, what the hell was I blathering on about? Oh yes, Summer Solstice. The day our beloved Sun is going to shower down goodness and invite the best season of the year in to greet us. Summer. Which, also, is when my birthday is. Mom? You remember it's my birthday, right?
Okay, okay. Wait, here's something else, do you know that there used to be only two seasons? It's true, I think back when Will Shakespeare was writing blogs. There was only winter and summer (my birthday season). So at that time the Summer Solstice was called Midsummer. Like Midsummer Night's Dream. See where I'm going with that. I like that title. It's oneiric. Go ahead. Look it up. I'll wait.... Tapping my fingers..
Okay, you ready now? You got it? Dreamy. It's so relating to dreams :). So my whole point of this insightful, well written blog is, can you have Summer Solstice without the Sun?
Where did the sun go?
I miss it so.
Seems it's been forever that it's been gone.
I blame this on Peter Yorn.
I don't want to have to go and switch religions now. If I were to, Asude, what should I go with? I need one where they don't tell you what to do. I need one where they like you to be tan. I need one where they think an icy cold mojito is a fine compliment to worshipping. I guess I'm just going to have to wait it out.
Patience. Now get down and give me twenty. I'm talking to you.
