Solstice means nothing to me, except the natural significance of it. Shortest day, longest day - same as any other day. Just sitting in my cage chirping away, watching other birds fly. Some people can handle life in captivity, even around here I read bullcrap like "...but we live in a modern world." and "how to incorporate these last shreds of dignified, wild life into our fake, scheduled world." We need to stop it. The whole system needs a reboot. Some of us were born to scream at the top of our lungs on a regular basis.
Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.
