Happy Solstice!

Traditionally, on this day my ancestors would huddle together for warmth in their mud huts, discussing how the days have been getting shorter and shorter and which relative should be sacrificed to keep the sun from disappearing altogether. Generally, before they could act on this notion, the commercial break would end and they’d go back to watching TV, and everyone would live to see the slow lengthening of days which inevitably led to the perils inherent in the Spring migration of Gila Monsters. At least, that’s how I remember the legends passed down from generation to generation.

Some additional thoughts on the Solstice and Media Conspiracies…Collapse )
