Summer Solstice 2007

Today is the longest day of the year!!!! And summer is officially opened!

And tomorrow begins the journey of the days growing shorter... taking us towards the Fall... and then back into winter... the cycles and the seasons... I love these days of full leafed trees, flowers in glory, fruit ripening...

Here is a mandala that I did ten years ago... showing the seasons. I used regular prismacolor pencils in all colors for this picture. The black paper has now faded. But I so love this ritual, for on the solstices and equinoxes I turn the picture with the new season to the top....
