Happy Summer Solstice!
I hope everyone has a wonderful longest day of the year. I always associate this day with John Crowley's beautiful book Little, Big, although yesterday I finished reading Pstricia McKillip's Solstice Wood (also beautiful, and a fellow Mythopoeic finalist), and that's fitting, too.
Every summer solstice, I'm sad that the days will now start getting shorter again. It seems ironic that summer officially begins on the day after which the sun will begin to diminish.
Today is also the tenth anniversary of Gary's arrival in Reno, so it's a particularly special day for me.
May all our sunlit hours be blessed!
