warm wishes for solstice
Night and day
You are the one
Only you beneath the moon
And under the sun
I begin this blog with an ancient, yet fabulous Cole Porter song. It’s the sort of song I play at work in the nursing home
to get the enlivenment going;
the joyful recognition and creativity flowing.
Today, I taste the lyrics while musing on the solstice, the moment when day and night are poised in equal balance.
I get all deep and meaningful.
‘You are the one’ could be a cosmic phrase as much as a personal sentiment. Night, day,
You are One.
Together, you polarities make up the one great gersplunking totality.
And if that’s the case, that it’s all part of one gigantic whole (Gaia, I guess), then on my microscopic insectudinal level, I can feel less timid about posting
the ‘dark’ pictures that emerge around winter solstice in particular.
(Hmmm…when I check previous wintery posts, I see I have visited such conundrums before. Can you relate?) To share or not to share my shadow side?
And I can intersperse the ‘dark’images with ‘light’ pictures of my sweet Art and Soul space.
This space is the location of our Art and Soulstice playshop on Saturday.
Is it too late to join us? If perchance you are keen, I have a spot available. You’d need to send me a message in the Contact box. Today. Playshop or no; light or dark; northern summer or southern winter; wherever and however you are, I wish you a nourishing, peaceful time, full of creative joy.
Last year’s solstice post, I asked if I should draw forth the Woman in the Moon.
And indeed I did.
I wonder what art will emerge this solstice…
with love, art and soul
