With many thanks to all our readers, friends, and followers: May you, and all your loved ones, receive the Joy, and Peace in Abundance, that these Holiest of days may bring.
And, Happy New Year too, from Francis, and Amanda.
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.

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!
Sunset 16th June 2006
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.
