Equinox 2013


Winter Solstice 2012 on Firle Beacon, Sussex Photo Lynne Ridden


Today it is the Autumn Equinox in the Southern Hemisphere. Tomorrow the Spring Equinox in the North. Here is a photo taken on Firle Beacon in Sussex at our Winter Solstice celebration. At a magical moment a few people broke away from the circle of about 40 to worship the sun more directly!

Happy Equinox!

My eyes already touch the sunny hill.
going far ahead of the road I have begun.
So we are grasped by what we cannot grasp;
It has inner light, even from a distance –
and changes us, even if we do not reach it,
into something else, which, hardly sensing it,
we already are; a gesture waves us on
answering our own wave..
but what we feel is the wind in our faces.

Rainer Maria Rilke
