Madcap Monday - Summer Solstice edition

With the bringing of the Summer Solstice, I thought today's post should celebrate the sacred connection between the earth and the sun, because without the sun nothing would grow.

Ella said she wanted to pretend to be corn so she asked Jack to plant her. He was more than willing to oblige!

Okay, so much for sacred. But it is Madcap Monday, folks!

On a more earnest note, in honour of the longest day of light, I'd like to share one of my favourite poems by Hafez, a 14th century Persian poet:

"Even after all this time
The sun never says to the earth,
"You owe me."

Look what happens with
A love like that...
It lights the whole sky."

Happy Summer Solstice, everyone!
