A Magical Time to Write: Summer Solstice

Do you feel a little more inspired today?

We’re celebrating Summer Solstice 2010, the first day of summer—also the longest day of the year, with the shortest night (night owls: take note).

Solstice represents a time of newness, nourishment and sustenance, a movement from dark to light, rebirth, and healing. It’s a time to turn attention toward inner balance—between our dark and light sides—as well as those forces in the world around us. An occasion of great change, Midsummer is a time to contemplate healing, nurturing and nourishing of ourselves & the earth.

Summer solstice is also the perfect time to start writing and/or perhaps give a writing project new life. What do ya say restless writers?

 On The Summer Solstice …
“Whatever is dreamed on this night, will come to pass.”

William Shakespeare – Acknowledging the magic of this time in A Mid-Summernight’s Dream
