In Southern Ontario, at the mouth of the Thames River on Lake St. Clair is a little out-of-the-way-place called Lighthouse Cove, home of an iconic lighthouse that has inspired all three of the following mandalas. I’m looking forward to sharing these with the people there on July 2 (you’re all welcome, too!)
“Our remote ancestors said to their Mother Earth, “We are ours.”
Modern humanity has said to Nature, “You are mine.”
The Green Man has returned as the living face of the whole earth
So that through his mouth we may say to the Universe, “We are one.” - Terri Windling
The source image is one I took of the beautiful doors at 107 Wellington West in downtown Toronto, which I later learned is Canada’s oldest private club.
Is it an obvious or ironic connection, do you think – a Green Man carving on the doors of a clubhouse whose members include titans of modern industry and finance?
