Yesterday the Sun finally appeared back in the sky after two weeks of being obscured by wildfire smoke. I decided to make an altar to thank the Sun for this week’s Witchy Challenge!
There’s some ginger, lemon, rosemary, thyme, and of course bay leaf ,
and yellow flowers from the garden.
With the worst wildfire season ever recorded in Oregon, this is what the midday sky looked like from my home last week:
The Sun was there but it was so eclipsed you could see spots in it, and the sky was red in the morning and dark throughout the day.
Yesterday the winds cleared most of the smoke and now we can go out and see the sky and the Sun again!!
I never felt more grateful for sunlight before! It’s so easy to take it for granted.
The sun does not shine for a few trees and flowers, but for the wide world’s joy. - Henry Ward Beecher
Let the Sun shine on your soul!
And what I think is the most beautiful chant to the Sun to date: George Harrison’s Here Comes the Sun
