Get Your Historically Accurate Midsummer Solstice On

Maypoles. Flower crowns. Human sacrifice?

The new Fair Folk, MIDSUMMER SOLSTICE, is jam-packed with ancient summer hits!

This episode explores some of the better and lesser known celebrations and songs of the midsummer solstice in Europe. In the process it addresses some of the perennial questions of this holiday, like: What is a maypole? Why are all of those Russians bathing together? And how can I find buried treasure when all I’m wearing is this garland of mugwort? And what’s all this about human sacrifice?

Nothing but the Jerry Cans for music today and quotes from Abraham re energy & our own energy management. I just returned from a trip to England for ten days. My first time. Very beautiful. Such lush growth beside the narrow roads, that it must take constant attention to trimming the trees and bushes so there is room for the cars. Roads are very narrow and the cars are small. Never even saw a pickup like the ones that fill our Safeway parking lot.

We have been getting some great indigenous music lately. Love, love, love Tanya Tagac. Wow, you can hear the icy Arctic wind blowing and the wolves howling and feel the energy of the ancient ways, now threatened by modern life. Love how she integrates the old with the new. The same can be said for the Jerry Cans from Iqualuit, love them too. So much alive and fresh energy which also integrates the old with the new.
