happy summer solstice

solstice There are summer solstice traditions practiced around the world -- some today, some last night, some in the week that surrounds what is known as "midsummer." This is a photo from sunrise today in Macedonia, at the famous archeological site of Kokino, which dates back about 4,000 years. Stones are placed to track the movement of the sun and moon at Kokino. It is being considered for admission as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Happy Solstice!
