The Summer Solstice is upon us - and it actually feels like Summer. A nice warm day with breeze. I could cope with any heat as long as there is breeze. After a nice long walk out there, in that there nature, I am back inside cooling off with some squash. Being the naughty Pagan that I am, I failed to get up and watch the sunrise. My alarm went off and I dutifully ignored it.
I think most folk had skidaddled to the coast as we had most of Headley Heath to ourselves for our sun-blasted saunter. Apart from meeting a couple of dog-walkers and their, err, dogs - both of which were decidedly out of puff - we saw nothing apart from skittering black birds and bumbling bumble bees. Oh, and the chirping crickets. I had to remind myself that some of them were not actually rattle snakes.
We walked and chatted about all sorts - but mostly about the future and where it might lead us.
This week came with a big life change in the form of me quitting my current job and deciding to find something new. Most people might find that lack of security a total over-load - but I know that it was the right thing to do. The decision was not made on a whim, but one I feel I need the fear to complete.
So, I am grabbing the fear by the kahoonas and seeing where it leads me.
Wish me luck!
