1. Do you have any special things you do on midsummer nights eve - evening or daytime?
I didn't this year cos still recovering from second epidermal, but I normally go outside and sit in a special place. I bring something for one of each of the 4 elements - normally a candle, a cup of water, a special stone, and since I can't stand incence (allerigies), a little potpouri or some of my favorite perfume that I spray in the area. I light the candle, and take a sip of the water. Then I just look at all the trees and flowers and sky and just open myself up to feeling good and receiving what the universe wants me to receive. I find trees send a lot of love if you look at them and open up to it. When I feel like going, I take another sip of water, and then sprinkle it on the ground as an "offering". Sometimes I also leave the stone as another thanks.
If the weather is bad, I still do a modified version from within an open doorway.
2. Shakespeare wrote the play "midsummer night's eve" What is your favorite play by Shakespeare?
I'm torn here between MacBeth and Hamlet. Both have so many layers to peel and learn. I guess I'd say Hamlet, because I played Ophelia in college and it was a wonderful time.
3. How was the weather in your area this spring?
Rain rain rain
4. What was the most memorable thing that happened to you this spring?
Well, the spinal block that messed my back more than it was. The second one of 3 also just made spring. It helped restore my balance but so far not the pain :(
The other thing was my Raja and her operation which she survived very well (wish I could recover that fast LOL)
5. What are your plans for summer?
last spinal block is July 9. If that works.. then I look forward to a fun summer. My husband's friends are muscians and they often have jamms - the women listen to the music and talk and have a great time. Plenty of food too! We rotate houses which also makes things fun.
