simple solstice celebration for one

found in nature
Originally uploaded by Jeremy Dennis.
You will need:
  • A patch of ground you care about.
  • A glass of your favourite beverage*.
  • Sunset***.
Take sip from glass. Raise glass to setting sun. Say "cheers**". Pour splash of beverage onto ground. Drain glass. Repeat as required.

*If your favourite beverage is coke, don't pour it on anything living. Try tarmac instead.

**You may wish to substitute your own words, e.g. "It's too damn hot can't we please have some rain," or "My boss is an idiot please plague him with boils".

***Sunrise, midday or 3pm are also a good time for a drink appropriate for worship.

NOTE: If you forget to perform this ritual until you get home from the pub at night it's important to create your own sun by setting fire to something.

Gentlemen may also pee on the compost heap, but please, not when anyone else is watching.

Re: in my observation
I think the old Celtic women used to complete over who could piss the biggest hole in the snow. It was a big status thing.

I had a boyfriend who was into pissing on trees (I always thought that killed them-) He said it made him feel close to nature. (Even for a boyfriend of mine, he was an odd 'un...)

isn't hugging more traditional?
I once slung someone out of a party for pissing on my roses. It may be good for compost, but ammonia burns plants.

Re: in my observation
If we go on holiday with our dog, she's not so happy about using an unfamiliar pissing spot, so often won't go for a couple of days. When she does, it's pretty impressive.

This dog, am I right? ... I have been looking at photos!

Re: is that
Indeed, that's her sporting her plastic head look, which she is very glad to be shot of. K's photos are teriffic. When you get a baby these days, they come with a digital camera and a photo site.
