I might work on going to celebrate at Northey street tonight....
Wandering the garden yesterday evening I thought I would capture the last rays of the sun before the shortest day was to grace us. The sky was quite breathtaking as a quick and thick wad of stormy cloud carrying a brief shower of heavy raindrops had passed us by just moments before.
But today sees the sun shining brightly and us collecting a few rocks from the yard to make our own simple balancing stone pile for our table. For Mia we made it to represent the Winter and her magnetic desire to mesh the outdoors with the indoors. For me, other than the artistic merit and today's symbolism, I haven't quite worked out my longstanding attraction to it yet - perhaps it's some unbalanced aspect of my persona (I am certain I have plenty) I am unconsciously trying to bring into equilibrium. Have a look at some amazing examples here.
Happy Winter Solstice.
