Mixed Media by Lynn Sisler. When Alcyone’s true love died at sea, in her agony she threw herself into the ocean as well. The gods took pity on the couple and transformed them both into halcyon birds (kingfishers). When Alcyone made her nest on the beach, the harsh waves threatened her eggs. The gods held back the wind so that the sea remained calm for 7 days, now know as ‘Halcyon Days’, when storms do not occur. Today, Halcyon Days are a term for a happy, nostalgic time remembered from the past. " NOTE: It is a plastic-free and bring-your-own-wine-glass(or purchase one there) event in the spirit of protecting our oceans. Hope to see everyone there!
