Today it is the Autumn Equinox in the Southern Hemisphere. Tomorrow the Spring Equinox in the North. Here is a photo taken on Firle Beacon in Sussex at our Winter Solstice celebration. At a magical moment a few people broke away from the circle of about 40 to worship the sun more directly!
My eyes already touch the sunny hill.
going far ahead of the road I have begun.
So we are grasped by what we cannot grasp;
It has inner light, even from a distance –
and changes us, even if we do not reach it,
into something else, which, hardly sensing it,
we already are; a gesture waves us on
answering our own wave..
but what we feel is the wind in our faces.
Rainer Maria Rilke
