Yesterday I was in our small town to do some Christmas food shopping and who should I see but my very special girlfriend…
She is so grown up. She told me that she has only asked for TWO things for Christmas… an electric guitar and a microphone with a speaker. Ohhhh boy.
Tomorrow is the Winter Solstice and there’s always a celebration at Stonehenge. The park officials open up the whole area so that the stones can be seen up close, touched, serenaded, and leaned upon. It’s actually a very magical experience with various groups from all walks of life and religious leanings standing together to welcome the sun. There is cheering and singing and drumming and — ok — a little bit of pot but what the heck. After the sun has come up many people walk back to their cars or vans and pull out the grills and camp stoves and you’ll see what amounts to tailgate parties up and down the road leading to the great monoliths.
Happy Winter Solstice everyone. Greet the sun and say thank you.
