Make Merry on this Superlative Solstice!

SUPERLATIVE SOLSTICE! The solstice is upon us and, as kin to the rest of Earth’s species, we feel at one with the cycling of the seasons on this beautiful planet that is our home.

SUPERLATIVE SOLSTICE! From our garden here at The Black House, we offer Solstice greetings to all in harmony with the Earth’s seasonal changes! We in the Northern Hemisphere embrace the longest day of the year as sultry Summer begins. Those in the Southern Hemisphere mark the longest night as Winter begins its chill dominion. Wherever on this wondrous planet you might be, it is always a delight to celebrate the glories of nature and the abundant pleasures that life offers! Here’s to a splendid new season filled with indulgence galore! —Magus Peter H. Gilmore
