Something I have always wanted to do is celebrate the summer solstice at an ancient circle of stones like Stonehenge or Avebury.
It’s actually No 9 on my list of things I want to do one day – I call this list my 50/50 project.
I was actually in England for the summer solstice last year, and only half an hour’s drive away from the Rollright Stones which is – so far – my favourite circle of stones.
But I was too scared to go out in the dark by myself! I didn’t know anyone else who was going and I didn’t want to intrude on the celebrations of anyone who might be there. So I didn’t get to see the sunrise over the stones, as I’d hoped.
I did, however, go the next day.
And it was such a beautiful & magical experience I thought I’d share it with you … even though it’s not quite making that particular dream come true.
I went with Krys Saclier and Martina Smythe, two of my students from the 2016 History, Mystery & Magic retreat in the Cotswolds, and Martina took most of these dreamy photographs (thank you for letting me use them!)
Maybe one day I’ll be back in the UK at midsummer and will have the courage to go and see the sun rise over a circle of stones (or at least, have some friends to go with me!)
