Today is a local hippy holiday – July Morning (named after the Uriah Heep song).
It is a 30-year old tradition in our community – staying up all night to greet the sunrise over the sea on the first of July, marking the start of summer fun and travelling. I have spent many July Mornings with my friends over the years – singing, laughing, drinking beer, wrapped in our sleeping bags around a campfire. And after we had children, we started bringing them too.
This year we did not go anywhere, but we still got up to see the sunrise.
It was hardly visible from behind the big linden tree, but the idea is important.
I finished a new bag – Fresh Garden, made of denim and decorated with rich ethnic embroideries, silk fringe and beads. It is now available in our shop.
