Ghyll : The Druid & The Man.

By UrbaneMagick
This is a mono candid shot of Ghyll taken at Stonehenge Winter Solstice 21.12.12.

At the I didn;t know Ghyll, but in the short period of time since the Solstice,. I have been in contact with him fairly regularly.

Everyone who knows him speaks so highly of him, of his wisdom , but combined with his humility & humbleness.

Sadly, Ghyll has cancer & had news this week that it has worsened.

Whatever your faith, be it pagan, Christian, Buddhist, whatever, please send a prayer out for him .

Thanks folks, have a great Sunday...I'll catch up with all of your works Sunday evening, as Lorna is back on nights for a couple of days then & I shall have the time.

I would say this aspect of his character shows quite clearly in your portrait Garth.
I wish him well in his fight.

Another great portrait shot in your Stonehenge Winter Solstice 21.12.12 Gareth.
You surely did a fine job here to reflect this peaceful atmosphere in ritual that is just so important in all ceremonies / rituals.
It is about the peace and love that one puts in them that makes ritual work so magical, or how much one puts in, one gets out from it.

The news about Ghyll health condition saddens me. I regret that I have never met him in person but I heard and read quite a lot about his passion as a druid and the well been of this planet.
I will include Ghyll health in my prayer and grove rituals.
Blessings my friend.
