For the Solstice
Whirl round in wonderment one more time, another cycle of another year, orbiting around this sun, sheltered by this atmosphere that is also ours to protect, nourished by this earth that is our responsibility to heal and repair, together belonging to one another simply because we are here now on this whirling planet hurtling through space. Whirl round in wonderment and complete the circle, receiving from the past, living in the present, giving to the future. What shall we give? gladness, hope, kindness, merciful justice? abundant blessings? wonderful music? surely we wish to give all this and more. So let us whirl round once again in wonderment, and live today and every day to do our part to carry on the best of the past and bring healing to old injuries and horrors, to live in this present glad for the gift of being, and to give to the future blessing upon blessing, more abundant than the stars. Amen.
