happy summer solstice!
in the spirit of summer, i am posting some of the exquisite words from "On Hyndford Street" by Van Morrison:
"Take me back, take me way, way, way back
On Hyndford Street
Where you could feel the silence at half past eleven
On long summer nights...
In the quietness as we sank into restful slumber in the silence
And carried on dreaming, in God...
and in between the silence there was conversation
And, laughter, and music and singing, and shivers up the back of the neck...
Early mornings when contemplation was best...
feeling wondrous and lit up inside
With a sense of everlasting life...
Over and over again
And voices echoing late at night over Beechie River
And it's always being now, and it's always being now
It's always now
Can you feel the silence?
On Hyndford Street where you could feel the silence
At half past eleven on long summer nights
As the wireless played Radio Luxemborg
And the voices whispered across Beechie River
And in the quietness we sank into restful slumber in silence
And carried on dreaming in God."
my wish for you/for creation this summer solstice is that you & your dearest ones experience and dwell in (over and over again!):
* silence * conversation * restful slumber * dreaming * laughter * music * singing * shivers up the back of the neck * contemplation * feeling wondrous and lit up inside with a sense of everlasting life * being now * carrying on dreaming in god *
