OCCASIONALLY,ENTRANCE IS FREE@STONEHENGE
Usually,for a ceremony led by Druids
Yesterday,families sat on stones and filmed each other
There were more iphones than guitars and drums-
more passive witnessing than active participation.
Of course,one also saw meditators,stone-huggers,eerily dressed pagans
but they stood as visual contrast to the rugged up,capped and camera-ready spectators.
A line of women in red chanted"BE AWARE!THE LAND THAT WE WALK ON IS SACRED"
as they proceeded into the center of the space inside the stone circle.NOTE!This was all filmed
LIVE from Stonehenge,so the paradox of filmmakers being filmed was a constant reality.
Faerie children stared at the drummers ,who kept beat from various locations around and within.
Clouds were British gray and dull.It would have been chill.Coats were as thick as clouds.
Ritual was observed in many ways(individually and collectively)
The openness and documentation via live feed were unique.
I felt i was given a gift of 43 minutes within Stonehenge itself
So i rugged up,adopted a Brit accent,and prayed for Sacred Stones to save us!
