Solstice! Such a strangely tranquil atmosphere for a celebration of such an important event. The massive fire was so hot we all had to step back, the guys were playing boring old songs, it was difficult to find joy in spite of wine, everyone seemed to be lost in their own thoughts, talking with people in low voices was not what I would have liked it to be, too personal, too intimate, what a surprising lack of freedom in that place, at that time. Later the sky was wonderfully clear, I watched it lying on my back, feeling sickly sweet.
