Every year, Sarah and I celebrate the summer solstice for a week. In addition to the Solstice being the first day of summer, it’s our wedding anniversary. Plus Sarah’s birthday is just before and mine just after. We wrap all the events together, don our wedding shirts on Sarah’s B’day and head to Tornak Hut high above our Valley where we exchanged partnership vows back in ‘02. Repeat the vows, give thanks for life and place and muse about the future. This year, that muse was about the third transformation – the new beings of the sunset years and how to live the last chapters. Our ‘Walk About’ in our beloved home country is the kick-off.
And this year, Sarah and daughter Nina decided I needed to have more than just a Tornak affair to celebrate my 75th. They invited 75 folks to a celebration at the Ketchum City Park.
