Guardians by badgersoph Guardians by badgersoph
Another in the series of paintings of the stone circle at Four Quarters Farm. That's my daughter Emily sleeping in front of the three stones members raised last August.

Sleeping in the stone circle was definitely an experience. First we were swarmed by daddy longlegs, then the farm dogs investigated us, then we were awakened by the wailing of alarmed cows probably being menaced by coyotes. The next morning Emily told me that she had dreamed that the fairies had come to invite us to their party...

...I had dreamed the same thing.

Im having a look through your gallery after adding those few stone pictures, your work is divine!

Is this place a place you visit often? If so you are soooo lucky!

Hello druid-owl!  Thank you for your kind words!

Yes, this is a place I visit often.  It is called Four Quarters Interfaith Sanctuary, and every Labor Day weekend we raise new Stones in our Circle.  I have just returned from four weeks there, and will be going out again in less than a week for another two.  You can see photos on my flickr page www.flickr.com/photos/93657868… and read more about the place at www.4qf.org .  

I am also publishing a book and oracle deck based on this place:  www.schifferbooks.com/index.ph…  

If you ever get into this neck of the woods, I hope you will visit!

Sophia
