Okay, officially it is the first day of Summer, but if you live anywhere near Central NW Oklahoma you know it has been Summer for some time. We have fresh tomatoes, beets, green beans, new potatoes and...(wait for it, wait for it, wait...) YELLOW SQUASH. The day you taste that first fried squash or juicy sliced tomato is the actual FDoS, no matter what the calendar says. The calendar is something we cobbled together while trying to make sense out of what we saw happening around us in nature. The earth beneath our feet and the wonders happening within it is something else, something More.
I recommend going out early, before the sun appears and burns away the magic.
This kind of exercise in connection doesn't need to be your life's work. It is the granting of a moment of silence.
P.S. The Hummingbirds send their greetings.
