The brightest day of the year is approaching. It seemed like an appropriate time to finally submit my application. The membership application will probably not be processed in time, so, jumping ahead a little, I was wondering if I could receive some hints as to how I might go about performing my first summer solstice ritual.
Up here the sun does not really set, or it kind of does, but the skies are light blue all the time (unless it is cloudy) and the “night” is not very long at all. This is a temperate region where the first signs of green growth is visible around May (which is also when the lakes finally thaw). The short summer months are busy with life doing what life does the best. The midsummer is a point where generally people joke around that now it is going to start getting darker again, even if you do not really notice it until much later, in the end of July.
I know I can do basically what I want and see how it works out, change it as I learn more and so forth, but I was wondering if there might not be some tips for the beginner that could, lacking a better expression, help me get more out of it this first special time.
