We had our soggy Summer Solstice celebration last Sunday, and on Wednesday night this week my Women's Meditation Group had a foggy Summer Solstice gathering. We are having that sort of June here in Maine. Mostly wet and cool.
Women's Meditation meets at The Stonehouse Manor in Phippsburg each June for good eats and a traditional sunset walk on Popham Beach. I have pictures from years past in which we are all smiling and sunlit, standing around sand castles that were built by happy children during the day. This year the beach at twilight looked like something out of a science fiction movie, strewn with whole tree trunks, big torn branches, and hills of seaweed washed ashore during the epic high tides we experienced this week due to strong winds and the new moon. This created a beautifully eerie and mysterious landscape.
As you can see, we enjoyed ourselves. There is something especially peaceful, playful, and powerful about this particular group of women, and I am grateful for their friendship!
Whatever the weather, I hope that you are all enjoying this first week of summer! Have a relaxing weekend!
