The Wild Honey Buzz - My Solar Return September 2021

Happy September, Virgo Season and Wild Honey's Solar Return Month! I'm celebrating the beginning of my 60th trip around the sun this month which makes me a sexagenarian...sounds sexy! September is also National Honey Month in the United States. How perfect is that? These photos of bees and honey are from my trip to the Evergreen State Fair this summer.

Since I'm sharing this post on the Jewish New Year Rosh Hashana, it seems appropriate to quote King Solomon's proverb (16:24) which says that "Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones." For your health, to sweeten your soul, and in celebration of my birthday, below you will find a list of 60 words, phrases and quotes, that I find extra pleasant (although this is certainly not an exhaustive list). I am wishing you all sweet things as we slip into fall and bid summer farewell.
