This Samhain new moon, as our ancestors are nearer the forefront of our awareness, here's a small tale about a gravestone I made my Great Aunt Ecila this Summer.
She died forty years ago, but ~ having matter-of-factly donated her body to science ~ never had a funeral or grave...and the time felt right for my mother and myself to redress the balance. (Since I carved a stone in memory of my father a couple of years ago, I'm quite the expert now ;)
I decided to try a multimedia offering this time, with a glass rosy cross inset into the sandstone, along with a little metal Scotty dog broach...and we made the pilgrimage down to North Curry, Somerset to sneak it into the family plot.
There we stayed with a family friend who had one of those wild, rambling and chaotically glorious gardens that have a timeless quality to them ~ you could imagine it being the same in a medieval or victorian age.
(The same could be said for many interior views, such as this nook, ode to glass and dragons :)
I spent much of my time filming the abundance of winged creatures who made their home there and on the local waterways...
These sun-infused interactions became this little video, made as an offering to Aunt Ecila ~ and all our relations who are now more winged than earthbound.
