Oakland, CA. Chapel of the Chimes.
Even though this year’s annual Garden of Memory event (thank you Sarah Cahill!) to celebrate the summer Solstice fell on the day after the Solstice (leap year disruption?), the bell ringing at sunset was a sparkly, glorious moment. Hundred’s of bells added to the already swirling soundscape that included the Cardew Choir in the final hour of their 4-hour performance of Pauline Oliveros’ Heart Chant.
Celestial FYI— While the sunrise has bottomed out at its earliest time (for this location), it will turn around and start squeezing the light from the day on Monday (6/27). Good news, however, is that the sun will continue to remain at it’s latest for another week- so we still have the sense of long days for a while longer.

Sunrise 5:26 AM.
Adriatic Sea. Vasto Marina, Italy.
This peaceful early morning moment was sandwiched between two slices of mild excitement. In order to see the sun over the Adriatic Sea, I had to jump over a little wall outside the bedroom window and walk across the roof. Once I had finished watching the sunrise, I turned around to return to my room and discovered that all of the rooms looked alike.
So I made my best guess and climbed over what I thought was my little wall and then wondered why the door to the bedroom was closed. It wasn’t until I saw a pair of legs and some red boxer shorts approach the window from the other side that I realized that this was not my room- not my window- not my balcony and hopped over the wall as fast as I could.
My apologies to the man I disturbed this morning. Hopefully a day in paradise will heal all.

You'd think traveling at 750 miles per hour would feel faster than this... Sunset at La Esquina Gallery in Kansas City, MO during a recent presentation and performance. At this latitude it takes a little more than 2 minutes from the time the bottom of the sun touches the horizon until it completely disappears.
