Greetings. I hope you all found time to enjoy your solstice. I have been through a painful health issue in the last few days. Fear not though, because I remain unconcerned. The above pics are the second in our new London collection. I sincerely hope you like them.
There are features in these pics familiar to folk who have never even been to England.
For myself, I like to visualise this place as having clean air, with clean water, and clean new machines that may require the spark of fire – plus peaceful people; who are at peace with their station on the green earth.
I hope you might share this vision I hold in the ethers for these noisy places which are situated all over the world; and thereby may those particular two towers remain worthy to stand, perhaps, for a few generations more.
Until next time, be steadfast, and abide in peace.
May the Light of Love radiate from the very centre of every atom that lies within every molecule of every cell in your loving body.
Namaste to all readers, old and new; and thank you for your very welcome visits.
Here in Britland, we just ‘enjoyed’ the coldest summer solstice week ever. A young friend of ours, freshly returned from a monastic retreat in ‘The Land of Snows’, brought back for me a surprisingly warm Tibetan shawl, made from yak’s wool. I particularly appreciate this, it because, summer notwithstanding, I’ve needed to wear it every day since receiving it.
Today we continue with our series of pics taken last month by Amanda, during a jaunt in rocky old Wales. Please enjoy. And, until next time, peace from Amras.

Thank so much, you to my fellow bloggers, for your ongoing encouragement and advice; you always help to keep me going: and I am very grateful.
May you all enjoy great celebrations over the next several days, as I intend to do. Our son’s birthday being on the winter solstice, (while Amanda’s birthday is on the summer solstice,) I am surrounded by children of the mystery, and I love it.
Tonight’s artwork, plays with the notion of “eminent domain” but here given in a wholesome and heavenly context. After all, if we are to create a better world for our descendants, then even the ways we construct sentences must be weighed and focussed upon that end. Mindfulness of language is intended to encourage a U-turn in the deepest seat of consciousness, so that lost becomes found, and confusion becomes clarity. And after all, who doesn’t want to be reborn into a better world?
I hope to return before Christmas, but for now, enjoy this momentous day, and Namaste from Amras.
“Finally, may we indeed, keep in our hearts, that our humble blogs are the spirits that keep the World Wide Web humane. Let use this gift to flourish as a person! Let us cherish one another! And be thankful of one another, because at some point, we did touched our respective lives.” ~ Aina Balagtas https://lyricssentimentsandme.wordpress.com
Well, here we all are. We made it to the all important 2012 Summer Solstice. Congratulations everyone.
Just six mini-months to go until the next Solstice. And then, hold tight! another spin around The Milky Way.
Oh, and Happy Birthday Luthien!

In 2006, a few days before the solstice, we were invited to attend a concert at Stonehenge. It fulfilled a lifelong dream of mine to visit the stones. Up close, the stones feel warm, alive, and friendly. I got out of my buggy for this pic.
I’m very fond of crows, and while there I made friends with this little fellow.
This was romanticized very simply on ‘windows paint’. I made two copies of my original photograph, with one image rendered out of focus. Then an easy process of judicious erasing and superimposing. And there it is. I hope you like.
