The Shell Grotto in Margate

The shell grotto in Margate is an interesting place. Mainly underground, there is a dome open to the sky. Around midday the light of the sun is reflected on the ceiling. It was a cloudy day, but the sun came through just at the right moment. At night this is an opening to the stars, most likely undisturbed by light pollution from roundabout. Perhaps the builders of the grotto looked up and learned from the star being what would happen in the coming time. It felt that now we should send a message to them about the state of the world, the darkness and confusion and ask for a strengthening of the light.
