Holly King - Bret Gold


Three days till Solstice.

Welcome, Winter.

Welcome the reign of the Holly King.

This Winter Solstice 2012, the world cycle begins anew

Again. Yet again.


(The Holly King is portrayed here by Bret Gold, a friend of a friend. I’ve never seen finer.)

    Awesome picture, and I loved the snow effects lol. We actually got snow here too, yahoo, I guess it is not usual on the Island and even though I don’t miss a lot of things about winter, I was missing seeing the white fluffy stuff. I stood outside for about half an hour just watching it fall…magical!

      What a great gift you got! I agree, Cheryl, there is something magical about that first silent blanket covering the land for its sleep.

    I love the Holly King! Thanks for reminding me of the solstice. I still have time to do something special and inspiring! Love the “snow” on your page.

    Bowing to you Tina

    Or DOES it?

    • Tina Fields Says:

      Sure. We don’t know what it will look like, or if any of us will get to see it, but a new world cycle will begin.

    I’m getting ready for it .. lining the driveway with candles to the bonfire area, gathering items that need to be let go of and keeping the darkness away until the dawn breaks..or until I get tired.
