Solstice Thoughts

Winter Scene - Falls Creek, Victoria - 27Kb

Winter is well and truly here this year. My longing for a 'real' winter has been more than fulfilled, snow having fallen in the hills around Adelaide for the first time ever in May. Further East it settled for several days , & in the High Country the snow season began almost a month early.

Winter fruits have also ripened early, the guavas finished two weeks ago, the mandarins are already a brilliant "Christmas" display in the centre of my picture window, and the kiwi fruit are ripening too. The wattle is flowering and the Kennedyas are in bud.
What's more, praise be! the dams are full and the river has been flushed. I haven't had to turn on a tap for weeks, the rainwater overflow being more than adequate for my needs.

Friends in the North tell me of wonderful summers, and as we celebrate YULE (early this year, as the Full Moon is on a Saturday) we think also of those celebrating LITHA, Midsummer, or St.John's Eve, when the days are at their longest.

We stand poised, like our planet, at a dramatic point of balance, the Shortest Day here compensated by the Longest Day in the North. Let's join hands and dance!
