Just a thought….

“A moment spent in wonder is worth a lifetime spent in awe.”

 

Thank you….

Avebury – My Sunday Photo

I have been to Avebury stone circle, in Wiltshire, more times than I can recollect. It dates back to Neolithic times. Further back than 2200 BC. It is one of my favourite places.

This was the first time I’ve wandered around the stones on my own and I liked it. Peaceful. Reflective. Soul refuelled. I sat, at times, and soaked it all in.

Oddly. I noticed parts I had never seen before. I don’t really know how that is possible. Less distractions, maybe. Not sure if it was the light. Just after 9am. Just after the summer Solstice, but it was different.

For instance, I was drawn to the concentration of quartz, in a diamond/oval shape, on the side of one of the stones. Maybe a trick of the light, coupled with my brain set up to spot faces, but that looks like a face. Paler than the surrounding area, due to the quartz, and weathered to give features.

Whatever it is, I think it is cool.
