There is a moment late in the day along the front range when the atmosphere can hold a mixture of cool moisture rushing down from the mountains, along with the day’s heat rising up from the prairies. When this happens it’s like living in a between place, glittering with light vibrating golden upon the tips of everything.

Today we celebrate Litha, the Summer Solstice. It is our pinnacle moment of light, marking the longest day of the year. With it we are reminded of the necessary energy and beauty of our dear Sun. In this week’s blog, I’m sharing our Litha question and affirmation for you to reflect upon during your personal golden moment today.

Also on this day, many are taking the opportunity to honor the fathers in their lives. Whether they be the humans who participated in creating and raising us, or those in our lives who have lovingly supported and guided us, we honor the deeply important role and nurturing energy they provide in uplifting us all. May your celebrations of all kinds be touched with glittering light.

All my love, always.

How to experience a year? Have you watched a sun set over a lively landscape? Have you tilted your face up to a noon sky and fathomed the enormous distances of atmosphere and air?

We sense it—a year as it moves within us in our daily gestures of love and longing. To truly encounter the moments of a passing year, and in particular this time of the Summer Solstice, you may wish to read this question and affirmation aloud as part of your ritual or celebration. Likewise, a quietly internal reflection may be what just the thing your heart needs in this moment.

When your year’s pinnacle reveals itself, how shall you glisten?

In a blaze of light
clarity comes and I see
purpose made visible
by bounty’s urgency.

Lend me a luscious pause
for the apex of this year’s beauty.
Equally help me turn
my willing heart to greet
its fade wholeheartedly.
