Eternity

Standing in Newgrange in Ireland for the first time in 1979, the 5000 year old tomb which is illumined by the winter solstice sun on the 21st December, I was overwhelmed.

Started in 2013 it may never be completed...

13

13 was the number of our house in England where I grew up.


As I later discovered the fibonacci sequence, 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89 and so on, I was fascinated how the numbers therein including the number 13 reflected important occurences in my own life...
