I am going to a Summer Solstice party this evening. Sometimes at Summer Solstice parties, things are burned (like wreaths or prayer flags) as symbols for rebirth and renewal. Out of all of the clothes I've donated away in the past year, I saved one pair of fat pants for such an occasion. With much joy, I am going to put them in the fire and watch them burn. I think it will help me say goodbye to that girl and start learning how to be this one.
