Today marks the summer solstice, the official start of summer for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere. For many the solstice is cause for celebration with all manner of festivities and time-honored rituals.
This is the season to worship the sun, and there's no better place than Taos, New Mexico. In the spirit of all things solar the Taos Solar Music Festival will be held this coming weekend. The festival boasts a solar village and great music all in a spectacular setting. There's something for everyone with a line-up of musicians that includes Robert Mirabal, Los Lonely Boys, Jakob Dylan and everything in between. Fun in the sun.
The beginning of summer is motivation for me to finally pack away winter coats and boots. Maybe I'll even replace the winter scene on my computer desktop with something more seasonally appropriate.
While I don't have much knitting progress to report, the week ahead will be one with lots of time spent waiting. And knitting. There are new colors coming out of the dye pots.
And goodies coming out of the oven.
Chocolate chip scones - a favorite any time of year.
