Thanksgiving for the Solstice Bonfire ... and those who made it possible
It is with enormous gratitude to the farm staff and the volunteers they have the support of, that I share the Solstice Bonfire with you. This simple community gathering honouring the shortest day of the year and the turn once more towards the sun and greater daylight; nourishes community spirit immensely. The staff at the farm are quiet, dilligent and hardworking in all their endeavours and this wonderful evening shared by thousands is testimony to all they give ... it's a gift and blessing to our community.
Late afternoon crowds gather ...
... evening draws near
Food stalls ready to provide for the crowds ..
... the moment before
... here we go ...
sparks to the heavens ...
... almost done
... heading for home
... all still as things end
