Summer Solstice

A sliver of time
Twixt past and future
Is all there is
The eternal now

The sun is rising behind the Stonehenge monument in England, during the summer solstice shortly after 04:52 am, early Monday, June 21, 2010. Druids, pagans and partygoers crammed into the mystic stone circle to cheer, bang drums and shake tambourines in an effort to greet the sun on the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere, the summer solstice. Stonehenge, on the Salisbury Plain about 140 kilometers (90 miles) southwest of London, was built over three phases between 3,000 B.C. and 1,600 B.C. It is one of Britain's most popular tourist attractions; more than 750,000 people visit every year. (AP Photo/Lefteris Pitarakis) (Lefteris Pitarakis - AP)
