There was - the other day - another pretty Google doodle by Takashi Murakami - a contemporary Japanese artist - to mark the Summer Solstice. As always, it was a pleasure to see it!
For me the day - 21st June - means "the longest day" of the year; just as 22nd Dec means the "shortest day" of the year.
In school you are made to learn - what back then seemed like a whole lot of totally unnecessary and painful to remember data - such stuff that later on you realize can be so interesting!
Such occasions are the only once when I remember that the earth is a globe on which we all seem to merrily go about our business - surprisingly without falling off it!
Most of the time I do not think of it like that. I mean who does, right!
Any way what does it matter whether the day is a long or a short one. What we do with it is what is most important and that stays with us - always!
So have a fantastic, productive, loving, abundant day, all!
