Sunshine on My Shoulder Makes Me Happy

Ahhhh, the arrival of summer solstice – the longest day of the year. This is certainly a time to celebrate. Some pessimists might say, “uh-oh, it’s the beginning of the end, as days begin to shorten.” I say stay in the moment and make the most of it while the light and good weather is here.

It’s a time for abundance of Mother Nature’s bounty – fruits, vegetables, herbs, game and more. It’s the perfect time to join the “eat local” movement or start the 100 mile diet. I think it’s realistic to try it this time of year. However, I find myself scratching my head with an “Emperor’s New Clothes” moment when people suggest this the opposite time of the year. I don’t know about your part of Canada, but pomegranates just don’t grow here and when I want one, I’ll go find one!!

It’s a time to partake is many activities we northerners don’t get to do all year round. There certainly is a smorgasbord of choices. Unless you just had knee surgery you really don’t have any excuse not to get outside and play. This season is your oyster and the possibilities are endless.
