A Purple Crystalising Strike - Helen Williams
A purple and green landscape with a copse of Birches holds 2 stones and a lightning struck lens. Watched by a waning moon. In the lens is a nightscape of hills and lake, lit by a waxing moon.
"I have a deep regard and awe for the Standing stones that mark the landscape, whether singly or in groups, rows and circles. A reminder of how our ancestors shaped not only the landscape of the countryside but their inner landscape of being too. Seeking connections and understandings through places of significance by ritual. Searching for insight and spirit. Ways to measure the skies and the events therein. Seeking concepts to describe what simply is. Perhaps these were even erected as a more permanent replacement to the sacred groves of trees that were hewn to cater for survival needs. That slippery slope to disconnect ones nature from the natural. For me these stones act as a way to focus on past or future. To allow a far seeing of my own depths of connection to my own nature. To discover the balance that can be found by being true to my innate nature. A calmness in solitude and acceptance."
