That night she dreamed of birds, long, bright red birds like flamingos, zipping through a black forest and making scallopy patterns, arcs of red that curved like their cries.

everything I want to say

 The days and nights zoom past. 

I’m busy all day with my work and life and am content.  There is just the right amount of time.

solar symbols


The most natural representation of the sun.  

Completeness.  Continuity.  Cyclical Nature of the Universe.

Circle with dot in the centre is symbol of the moment when the earth receives the light of the sun.  Spring.

Circle with sun rays is about human frailty. 

Circles within circles are about androgyny.
