Druids : Summer Solstice : Cornwall

Image description:
Today was the longest day……… here in Britain at least………… Druids were out celebrating the Summer Solstice up at Stonehenge this
morning……… although apparently the Summer sun totally failed to materialize…… This kind of thing is always the problem for any kind of a
sun worshiper in Britain ……… still I gather a good time was had by all …….. even the cops it seems were happy with the number of hippies
they busted for drugs at the event…….. ah yes a traditional sort of no sun summer in England’s West Country same as ever………. :)))))
This image above was shot at the stone circle in Ed Prynn’s house…….. In the lead up to the 1999 solar eclipse down in Cornwall……….. He
had built the stone circle himself and styled himself as Cornwall’s Arch Druid……… here is part of the caption:
Cornwall: Archdruid Ed Prynn has 30 standing stones in the yard of his St Merryn home, close to Tintagel, legendary site of King Arthur’s
Camelot The archdruid performed a series of dances ahead of the eclipse to try to draw out the sun from the gloomy weather. He said the skies parted
enough for the phenomenon to be seen.
“I’m floating on cloud nine,” he said. “It was as if Merlin himself pulled the clouds back so we could get a look.”
Pagan priestess Sue Ward said many people would have come to the eclipse looking for a spiritual experience.
“For pagan people this has probably the same significance as the millennium to Christians,” she said.
Hope he had sun in his circle today ……… but I somhow doubt that he did…….. :)))))))))))

Is this shot in a studio there is no sun to worship in Britain?
Kanga @ June 22, 2013, 3:28 am
No amazingly it really was sunny just before the eclipse……… so we really experienced it in all its amazing glory……… but I have to
agree any kind of sun worship in Britain is a bit of a thankless task……. especially today……. me and Ringo just got saoked ://///

Its a weird set up this …….. no doubt ……. but its honest straight forward Druiding……… kinda weird stuff sure …….. but I believe
generally harmless enough as weird stuff goes……….. I dont think its him …… Ken Barlow or at least his actor was into harmful grim
weird stuff if these current charges turn out be true………… if only he had been a harmless weirdo just building stone circles in his
back garden and dancing out there in his spare time simply for the joy of it :///
:))))))

…are they wearing wellies?
Paul Close @ June 24, 2013, 5:34 am
Sun worshipers in England are wise to wear wellies…. they might be rather optomistic about the sun by most peoples standards……
but hey…… they are not crazy…… after all it’s not called mud Island for nothing……. wellies are always a good move in Britain no
matter what beliefs you hold or don’t hold…….. yes…. no matter what religion or deity you identify with, even if you are a druid or a
noneoftheabove
type………… one thing unites us all in Britain ……. the need for wellies …….. I heard a good one the other
day……. an overseas player…… ” I so love Wimbledon it’s so great to play here……. but I don’t know why they don’t hold it in the
Summer? …….. hehehehe………. cheers bro Jez XXXXXXXXXXXXXX
