Sunset, full moon, solstice

Amid the hurly burly of life, especially at this time of year, it’s good to remember that we are just a tiny part of a very big universe. Today is a reminder of that, with the conjunction of a full moon and the summer solstice. It’s one of the few times of the year that the full moon and the sun are visible in the sky at the same time, and I was down at the beach watching for the moment. It was a beautiful evening; lovely to drift along by the sea as the light faded and then to see the moon like a balloon becoming visible over the eastern horizon. Somehow it helps to put daily dramas into perspective. It also feels like a link to friends in northern climes who are celebrating the return of the sun with the winter solstice – bonfires, candles, midwinter feasts.

Here are some photos from tonight…
