Winter Solstice



december 21st... winter solstice... 
it began with earth moving between sun & moon...
all in alignment...


a time to think about how we are aligned within ourselves...
to evaluate our shadows...
to glow in the light of our own worth...


i was working, so couldn't photograph the sunrise
but the setting solstice sun was a sight to behold...


infusing a golden warmth
over frosted fields...



a totally different vista in the opposite direction... 
of palest pink & blue & violet...
 a surreal pearlescent glow...


what do the solstice skies speak of to you
as the days now begin to lengthen in the northern hemisphere?

can we successfully integrate these vastly different aspects...
of personality... of culture... of humanity...?


the evening solstice moon...
full... potent...
regenerated from the shadow of eclipse...
rising in phoenix colours...


whispering her message to those who will listen...

S-absolutely beautiful. We did not get to see the solstice over our way because of cloud and rain. Your total eclipse and last shot are stunning - love that moon. All the best for the journey ahead. B

Suzi these images are glorious. The return of light to me speaks of potential, possibility, pregnancy, promise...yes I believe in both/and at all times...living life with a both/and attitude means I can accept what is and work toward change and healing at the same time. I don't know if this answers your question...maybe it just opens you to more questions (I hope so!!!)
