Yule 2022


Yule blessings to all and hail the returning light. We made it into Stonehenge again at the kind invitation of the Cotswolds Druid Order. It was fabulous to be part of their Winter Solstice celebrations, but there was nowt around in the way of sun....let's just say the conditions were rather more challenging than on previous occasions 🌧 However, I'm delighted to say that the wizard/shaman kit I made for the side had its inaugural outing even if it was a slightly surreal experience to see one of my fellow dancers performing in it. It was the first time I'd seen the whole lot worn together as I'd already passed over the mask before I'd finished the front. I hope to get a clearer photo of it for my own records when the weather is rather more clement!

  2. Happy Winter Solstice. Mother nature sure has looked at the calendar as it's as winter as it can be here. What a cool way to spend with your group and passion.

  3. Sending the blessings of the season to you, Aril, and all your loved ones. We're anticipating a winter storm here in the American Midwest -- just the scene for that beautiful white deer. Has the deer a name and a story?-====
