The Hour of Transformation

A new year awakens the spirit of growth like Spring awakens the natural kingdom of plants. In the hour of transformation the psyche grasps its mature golden feathers and a beacon of light hangs in the temple of the soul.

Happy New Year 2007!

Windbagandthunder is back from holidays. I hope everyone is well rested for the journey ahead.

Happy New Year!

Seeing the Turkish Prayer Mat reminded me of a friend who helped set up an exhibition of Turkish Calligraphy a few years ago, in Istanbul.

Truly inspirational and memorable - here is a link to an account.

Unfortunately the snapshot pictures don't do justice to the magic of seeing the actual scripts. A few more here
