INVOCATION OF DARKNESS on the night of 20th - 21st December

The night of Winter Solstice this year coincides with the New Moon. This happens only once every nineteen years.

It means that the longest night of the year will also be the darkest.

We urge all our Surrealist comrades, friends and fellow travellers in the northern hemisphere to make use of this exceptional darkness in whatever way you see fit ...

or, even better, to allow it to make use of you ...

Dear friends, yesterday I payed my respect to the grands invisibles by a walk in the woods and a visit to the shrine of the Mother Goddess in the Celtic section of the Leyden Museum. My dreams were vivid and colorful.
And did send your message on. RIK

I emerged from a shop on the west side of Tottenham Court Road at 3.30pm on the 20th December. London was already getting dark, and the fog was closing in. When I looked across the road, all the buildings on the eastern side of the street had gone dark in an act of respect. The lightless buildings stretched away into Fitzrovia.

Later that night, walking home, I found a building site around a local hospital. The fences around the site had been moved to allow access to a dumped examination table. It was gone the following night.
