Up here in the Northern Hemisphere, it's summer now. Down under, it's winter now. Whatever season it is for you, Happy Solstice today!

Hey...we were just talking about this! I'd completely forgotten until about 11:30 at night.



Happy Summer!

Happy Solar New Year to all inhabitants of the 'Southern' (If you accept the Eurocentric view of our planet) hemisphere.

Cold and sunny in Brisbane and I'm in love, so it's all good.

Anyone else coming to the Brisbane Vegan Meetup?

I saw that, but it has the wrong (Eurocentric!) date so felt the need for another thread.

(What's another duplicate(ish) thread here or there!)

Celebrated the Winter Solstice myself by visiting Katoomba's Winter Magic Festival. Always good, but it was a long way and I'm quite tired. It's nice to celebrate the fact that the days will be getting shorter with food, beer, music and clothing purchases.

Love the post? Why not buy the T-shirt!

And here's silly old me, thinking that the days will be getting longer!
