This last Saturday was the Summer Solstice, the first real day of Summer. OUR season. The season in which our Kingdom of Hawaii basks eternally. And, on the day of the Solstice the Hawaiian Super Moon brightened our skies.
The days lately have been bi-polar. June Gloom casts its warm, grouchy spell over our little Island Kingdom. The clear spring weather and clear skies of May have shifted and clouds are hanging low and oppressive. The air is rife with allergens and my eyes burn. The weather oscillates between thick heat and humidity, an oceanic breeze and a sudden, unwelcome downpour. Then the clouds part with the errant trade winds, and the sun shines golden, briefly lifting our spirits before the next phase of gloom and heat press down.
we roused ourselves in the wee hours of the night. As the winds drove the clouds racing across the skies, we saw the bright orb of the Hawaiian Super Moon cast a silvery bluish glow on the landscape. As clouds blew past, a rainbow halo appeared around the moon.
A sight like this won’t come again for another year. We were lucky to see it. As we say in Hawaii, “Lucky we live Hawaii.”
Did you see the Super Moon on the Solstice? What were you doing when you saw it? How did it make you feel? Lastly, what are your plans now that it is officially Summer?

Happy Summer, Lover!
