"It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known."

The Solstice is a time to be mindful.  

It’s about being present, but not about stopping time

It’s about savoring the present without thinking or feeling about it
 
It’s about acknowledging all the emails, text messages, tweets, updates, news flashes, alerts, alarms and distractions without engaging with them for a few minutes
 
It’s about learning how to interact with the universe around us in a focused, meaningful, thoughtful way.
 
We’re standing or sitting or laying down on a planet that is orbiting around it’s axis once a day, and orbits a star every year and rises and falls up and down along the plane of a universe every 125 million years that has spinning away from the galactic center

This is my father. Glenn Francis Walker, son of Pius Alexander Walker and Helena Viola MacDonald, my Grampa and Nana.

Grampa was the son of Angus B. Walker and Theresa Morrison, my great grandparents, 

Angus was the son of Peter Walker and Mary MacDonald, my great great grandparents.

Peter was the son of Angus Walker who married  Sara McPhee on February 9th, 1846 at Saint Micheals Roman Catholic Church on Prince Edward Island, Canada: my great, great, great grandparents.

I’m sure that my ancestors beyond Grampa were great. But my Dad?  Glenn Francis Walker, whose birth certificate from Boston Lying-In Hospital in Boston Massachusetts certified that Francis Glenn Walker, weighing 8 pounds 3 ops was born at 2:19 PM on May 25th, 1937…my Dad, he’s the greatest.

I love you tree-tri-so Dad. Happy Fathers Day.
