This weekend, we celebrate the Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere (Winter Solstice in the Southern!) The Summer Solstice marks the longest day of the year and falls on the 21st of June. In the Pagan calendar, we call this time Litha, a time of celebration of the Sun being at the height of its power.
In a parallel universe, The Elementals and I would have been heading off to perform at the fantastic 4-day Stonehenge Solstice Festival. For obvious reasons, that has now been postponed to next year, but we won’t be sitting around with nothing to do…oh no! We have not one, but TWO online shows this weekend! We kick off the Solstice weekend with the Midsummer Fantasia and then astral project ourselves by the wonders of the internet into the Virtual Reality World of Second Life! By far our most unusual gig yet, we will be streaming live into Second Life, singing and dancing, but in avatar form!! This time, we are performing at a private function by invitation from a community group in SL, but if things go well, we will definitely look at making this a more regular thing that we can make open to everyone! We really can’t wait to see how things unfold and will keep you posted!
We are living in uncertain times for sure and so on behalf of all of us here at Elemental HQ, we wish you a peaceful and pleasant Solstice, wherever you may be.
Health and well wishes,
Livia & The Elementals
