Notes, June 14, 2007, Blue House. 25 degrees C., westerly winds. The turquoise sea fingers the rocky shore today like Lapus Lazuli, beneath screeching kittiwakes, ivory against a cloudless sky, & careening in counter-clockwise circles before plummeting for a feed of caplin. Minke whales slice across the cove in solitude, their sharp dorsals somehow ominous in the water. (Image: Vesica Piscis)
The mandorla is an ancient Christian symbol of two circles coming together, overlapping one another to form an almond shape in the middle. The circles my represent spirit and matter, or heaven and earth. In the middle is a place of reconciliation, of transformation - the incarnation.
