Solstice Activities So Far
Tuesday, June 21, 2011
1. I did a ceremony involving arugula, blue cheese, strawberries, and a Blue Moon beer. A lunch ceremony.
2. I read some poems by Elaine Equi. One of them starts, "The name Equi means horses in Latin." Then I thought of something I recently learned: "The German word for Cooper is Fassbinder."
3. I thought about the idea of renewal. It came to me like a Joseph Cornell box-- something with a ballerina looking sad but determined. Maybe some string representing the trajectory of thoughts; an old postcard with new writing across the old image; and a plant from under the ocean that looks like lace made of clay. Maybe it's a plant, and maybe it's an animal. The point is, once you've made an art box assemblage, you're free to get on with things.
4. I'll offer you this service, in the form of a summer incantation: "Take it easy. Let it go. Just go ahead and let it go."
