Today was the longest day......... here in Britain at least............ Druids were out celebrating the Summer Solstice up at Stonehenge this morning......... although apparently the Summer sun totally failed to materialize...... This kind of thing is always the problem for any kind of a sun worshiper in Britain ......... still I gather a good time was had by all ........ even the cops it seems were happy with the number of hippies they busted for drugs at the event........ ah yes a traditional sort of no sun summer in England's West Country same as ever.......... :-)))))

This image above was shot at the stone circle in Ed Prynn's house........ In the lead up to the 1999 solar eclipse down in Cornwall........... He had built the stone circle himself and styled himself as Cornwall's Arch Druid......... here is part of the caption:


Cornwall: Archdruid Ed Prynn has 30 standing stones in the yard of his St Merryn home, close to Tintagel, legendary site of King Arthur's Camelot

The archdruid performed a series of dances ahead of the eclipse to try to draw out the sun from the gloomy weather. He said the skies parted enough for the phenomenon to be seen.

"I'm floating on cloud nine," he said. "It was as if Merlin himself pulled the clouds back so we could get a look."

Pagan priestess Sue Ward said many people would have come to the eclipse looking for a spiritual experience.

"For pagan people this has probably the same significance as the millennium to Christians," she said.


Hope he had sun in his circle today ......... but I somhow doubt that he did........ :-))))))))))) XXXXXXXXXXXX
