Sweet Solstice Darkness
In the quiet moonlight l contemplate this year of 2020. Where we started, where we arrived and where we may go. The turning of the seasons, the birth/death cycles of nature continue undaunted by massive health, financial, and social upheavals around the planet. Once again we pass through the dark, cold night of hibernation, dream time and incubation. Our fire turns down to embers glowing in the dark. pulsating, waiting, asking for faith. While we cannot alter the past or nature’s seasons we can change our mind, our intentions and visions for the future. Let us acknowledge the peace and possibility of this longest night of the year by creating a moonlit painting which enlivens our faith in the restorative power of darkness and mystery.
