happy solstice  
I got up this morning before the fingers of dawn had become rosy, and along with veek, eestiplika, moominmolly, dilletante, and little N, ventured to the banks of the Charles River with small boats made of folded paper and candles to set them afloat and afire and welcome the solstice sun.

We watched the sun peek over the horizon, a distant dim pink at first, slowly brightening as it rose above the haze of Boston. Welcome, summer, we're glad you're here!

Today's song is Hope on Fire by Vienna Teng:

 
 
I'm feeling: happycelebratory

What a lovely morning
I'm usually surprised when people I know have heard of Vienna Teng. She's not exactly wildly popular but somehow people seem to know her. Neat.

One of my favorites. You introduced me. I had no idea she played piano, too. Should get together with Tori Amos!
Frost this AM on your old homestead! Welcome to summer.
