solstice memories

(Denmark 1983)

midsummer dreams
white nights in Nordic lands
(who sleeps in the summer?)

solstice celebrations
bonfires on beaches
three nights in three countries

summer holidays, cottages
sauna and skinny dips in silky lakes

Hauskaa Juhannusta!
Happy Solstice!

And while we're at it, happy National Aboriginal Day! (Canada)

Peter - yes, I just heard about it the other day - thanks for the reminder. Here is more info:
