In honor of tomorrow’s Summer Solstice (in which the turn of the seasons occurs on the new moon at the start of Cancer season just as Mercury has entered retrograde), here is a mixtape I made for you.
Tune in to the quiet things you know about your shortcomings. They are your guides. Take stock of the doings you would like to make right, and commit to a future in which you do them.
Acknowledge the outward prompts, and turn inward. Now is the time for us to let go of what we harbor that does not serve us or the greater community anymore.
You are worth it. We are worth it. Now is the time. Let’s make it right.
