Stonehenge:: Dreaming of A Solstice

I should have posted about Stonehenge on summer or winter solstice; it would have been more fitting. But alas, here we are.


The iconic Stonehenge was built between 3000 and 2000 BC with stones weighing upwards of 25 tons. The 13 feet high stones form a ring that align perfectly to the sunset of the winter solstice and the sunrise of the summer solstice. There are many theories on why it was constructed. It is known to be a burial ground, and clearly marks the ticking of time. But what else does it signify? No one knows.


Stonehenge is one of those places that I want to revisit, but particularly at one of the solstices. I can’t fathom how spiritual it would be to see the sun glide over the heel stone, feeling at one with ancient peoples, and celebrating the life source that is the sun. Bucket list material, right here!
