Garden Life

Big sun in sad times

It’s Summer Solstice today. Let the sun warm your face. Linger over the perfume of the rose garden (even if it’s only in your imagination). May it bring solace to your hurting heart.

Remember we are all connected to each other. We are family. We’re connected to the animal and green beings on this planet, and connected to the Earth herself.

If one of us has chains, none of us are free.

Well you better listen my sisters and brothers
‘Cause if you do you can hear
There are voices still calling across the years
And they’re all crying across the ocean
And they’re cryin’ across the land
And they will ’til we all come to understand

If you just look around you
Your gonna see what I say
Cause the world is getting smaller each passing day.
Now it’s time to start making changes
And it’s time for us all to realize
That the truth is shining real bright right before our eyes.

None of us are free, if one of us are chained
None of us are free

Solomon Burke
