from my cocoon to yours, i'm wishing you a beauty and peace filled solstice...

“Life has always seemed to me like a plant that lives on its rhizome. It’s true life is invisible, hidden in the rhizome. The part that appears above the ground lasts only a single summer. Then it withers away - an ephemeral apparition. When we think of the unending growth and decay of life and civilizations, we cannot escape the impression of absolute nullity. Yet I have never lost the sense of something that lives and endures beneath the eternal flux. What we see is blossom, which passes. The rhizome remains.”

Carl Jung, 'Memories, Dreams, Reflections'

  8. Love your photo and I'm a big fan of Carl Jung too. I think I may need to revisit his writings again for inspiration.
    Enjoy the Solstice and may you make the most of the returning light.
