I love this one Chrystine, partly because in feels like animation happily showing visions in my imagination. Another friend of mine always remembered Great Mother and Great Father in her prayers as she prayed for us. They are begatting, no doubt, and all of us should be catching some love as it happens.
But this combines the hero's journey as described my myth. And though it charges that one year with the mark of legend, it could represent lifetimes.
Joseph Campbell (who was not any part of the canned soup industry) found all forms of rites as passage for human beings. And your ideas on the solstice make it all happen just right as I read along. I have to make it fave, it's great!
That was truly amazing; oh you just took me on the most wonderful journey, I am going to have to read all your work now, now that is aspiration oh I have some years to go, but WOW, your there. Love it!
