Back to the Burrows

This is what the Burrows looked like today. Looks quite tranquil, but I can tell you, it was bitterly cold, with a ferocious gale blowing.

I managed to find shelter in a hollow among the stones, before braving the full blast of the Atlantic wind on the open beach. 

 I tried to measure out a labyrinth site, but got tangled up in my cord, lashing fiercely around my legs. A couple of dog walkers pretended not to notice me. I am an artist, I wanted to shout out to  them, but  the words couldn’t get out of my mouth.

They are playing golf out there. They must be mad!

 I have admitted temporary defeat. It is far too cold. Also, I found out yesterday that to make a classical 7-ring labyrinth would take about 3 tons of stone…. I think my slaves (family) might be a little rebellious.


About throughstones

I am primarily a visual artist, living on the North Devon coast, a beautiful semi-rural area in South West England. I am interested in full engagement with 'place' and the eternal movement of life - particularly as it relates to what we call 'the natural environment'.

    It’s pretty warm here in NE Wisconsin, and this shot of the water reminds me of Lake Superior in so many ways, maybe the different shapes and colors of the stones. I love stones, and this photo is very moving to me. Great site, too.


    • thanks so much – the weather is certainly very prominent in my mind – but then, I am British! Weather always a good topic of conversation. I love stones too – and love seeing and hearing about people’s different landscapes. Strange how our surroundings become a part of ourselves.
