Outside the yurt

Sitting outside the yurt listening to the thunder. Watching the clouds roll in the nightly monsoon rains.

Clouds across the ocean

I made a stone ocean that seems to reflect the night sky. If you look carefully you can see the rabbit getting ready for a face off.

Over the Yurt

Hard to tell where the yurt ends and sky begins. As it should be connected to the universe

Dinner

Looking through the screened yurt window my neighbor grabs a quick dinner before the storm.

Yurt Mythology

Unfortunately the lovely poem/story I posted yesterday never made it to the blog. Since the winds ate kicking up and distant rumbles are being to shake the sky I thought I might share a bit of yurt spirituality with you.

This is the tono, the circle represents the universe and the stove smoke hole the sun. It is said the yurt is the connection between heaven and earth, or the womb of mother earth.
Opposite the door is the sacred spot and the place we’re one is to put the altar. I have painted a dragon entwined in the tree of life and he resides in the sacred location as protector of both the yurt and all within.
