Solstice


This is my entry for the 4x4friday challenge where the theme is "Midsummer". This digital collage depicts a Druid woman attending the summer solstice celebration at Stonehenge. A magical time when the sun's power reaches its peak. Midsummer is also named for the Goddess Litha, known as a Goddess of fertility, power and order. This is a time to invite fire into our lives(metaphorically of course) - to burn away the old and invite the new in . It is also a time to enjoy the earth's bounty and enjoy the season of ripening and bringing things to fulfillment. This coming Monday is the first day of summer here in the Northern Hemisphere. The wheel is turning, forever changing and moving and I hope we all can reflect on this day on our most precious calendar 'Nature' and celebrate!
