I don't know what to call it. It's round so maybe a mandala. Or a solstice light catcher. Or a paper cut. Or all three. Why not.
Since then I've also been stumbling across this quote by Albert Camus: "In the midst of winter I finally learned that there is within me an invincible summer." The few times I did stumble across it, I read it and my heart sank. My reaction was, "Oh, I wish." I then had quite a hellish few days. But, long story short, I came out through the other side and even found some contentment, some joy bubbling up out of nowhere. That's for another post, but last night I remembered that Camus quote and thought - yes. I found my invincible summer.
And then I saw that my friend over at Lickety Split posted this. I love that poem. I remember that it got me through some brutal fucking heartbreak about 10 or so years ago. This is a photo I took during that time...
"what matters most is how well you walk through the fire."
So there you go. Walk well. Mind how you go. Happy Solstice.
