On Monday June 22 I was swinging on the porch at nearby Dunrovin Ranch with SuzAnne Miller, where we broadcasted “The Joys of Summer” the afternoon immediately following the summer solstice.
We enjoyed talking about how summertime creates different meanings and memories for people worldwide, and shared observations of the cycles, rhythms and routines humans and their wild and domesticated brethren tend to follow here in Big Sky Country, as well as farther afield.
About mid-way through our 23-minute chat I led participants and viewers through a brief nature connection visualization along a stretch of the Bitterroot River that borders Dunrovin Ranch, so if you have limited time, go to about the ten minute mark on the video to experience and enjoy this meditation.
I hope you’ll take time to enjoy our entire conversation via this YouTube link, though, and that it’ll inspire you to slow down, savor the moment and enjoy the gifts that summer so freely gives all of us.
Feel free to share and forward the link, too, and SuzAnne and I will get together again close to the fall equinox and the winter solstice share the joys of those upcoming seasons.
Enjoy, and here’s that link: https://youtu.be/KvfTcOg3Dms
