FIRST DAY OF SUMMER

The summer solstice occurs when the tilt of a planet’s semi-axis, in either the northern or the southern hemisphere, is most inclined toward the star that it orbits. Earth’s maximum axial tilt toward the Sun is 23° 26′. This happens twice each year, at which times the Sun reaches its highest position in the sky as seen from the north or the south pole.

The summer solstice occurs during a hemisphere’s summer. This is the northern solstice in the northern hemisphere and the southern solstice in the southern hemisphere.

Depending on the shift of the calendar, the summer solstice occurs some time between June 20 and June 22 in the northern hemisphere and between December 20 and December 23 each year in the southern hemisphere.

The rising sun is seen through the standing stones at the prehistoric monument Stonehenge, near Amesbury in Southern England, on June 21, 2014, as revelers gather to celebrate the 2014 summer solstice, marking the longest day of the year.

The festival, which dates back thousands of years, celebrates the longest day of the year when the sun is at its maximum elevation. Modern druids and people gather at the landmark Stonehenge every year to see the sun rise on the first morning of summer.

To start the day …. “Happy Father’s Day, Dad”!!

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY, DAD!

Today I honor my Dad, who is not here with me on the earthly plane anymore.

I have written a few things about him yet I don’t get tired of doing so.

My father was born in the small town of Juncos, in the Island of Puerto Rico in 1911. He came from humble beginnings and faced all the trials and tribulations that life threw his way.

His family was a large one. Many brothers and sisters. He was the oldest.

The stories I remember about that time as sketchy.

None of the siblings are alive at this time.

However, I do remember that he studied accounting. He immigrated to New York City in the early 1930’s (as many Puerto Ricans were doing) in search for the famous “American dream”.

He worked at anything he could find.

I remember that he worked as a bell boy for one of the hotels.

He sent money back home to help his family.

He made it possible for his brothers to go to college and become the successful engineers who started the

Rexach Construction Company“.

From his accounts and personal concerns, it seems that he was subjected to discrimination directed to many of the Puerto Rican immigrants, a feeling he felt for many years.

He met my Mother there and they married in 1934.

They soon returned to Puerto Rico.

They got settled and started the family.

My Dad was a wizard at finances.

I don’t know how he did it but he put both my brother and me through private school and also through college.

I went to medical school, completed my training and never owed a cent in loans.

Most of all, he taught me about life … not through conversations but through example. I knew he was very proud of me and what I accomplished in my life … he rarely spoke the words but he definitely showed me.

He wasn’t “touchy-feely” but he was always there.

I am who I am, I have what I have, I am where I am because of you Dad.

Today I thank you and honor you.

I miss you … I wish you were here still but such is life.

You live within me … in my heart, in my mind, in my memories, in my DNA.

You were and you are the best father a daughter could have.

THANK YOU, DAD!

~~Dance with my father again~~

Luther Vandross

~~Uploaded on May 18, 2010~~

This music video ‘Dance With My Father Again‘ is about a child who misses his dear father who passed away. Grieving for the loss of his father and feels the pain for his mother.

“Back when I was a child, before life removed all the innocence
My father would lift me high and dance with my mother and me and then
Spin me around till I fell asleep
Then up the stairs he would carry me
And I knew for sure I was loved

Chorus:
If I could get another chance, another walk, another dance with him
I’d play a song that would never, ever end ….

How I’d love, love, love
To dance with my father again”
