portuguese solstice

the evening of the summer solstice in portugal, a group of international artists, writers, musicians and scientists - representing 7 countries: portugal, united states (me), canada, holland, brazil, italy, and greece.  as the sun set over the ancient stone pointing west, we toasted to the waning light. then the music began - brazilian portuguese love songs on the guitar, chopin and eric satie played on the piano, singing, clapping, dancing while the wine flowed. a dreamy night under a moonless sky blazing with stars.
