A Day Out of Time

JULY 25

Article by Stella Mutch

In the Mayan calendar, 13 lunar months of 28 days each ended in midsummer, on July 24. The Day Out of Time that completed the 365-day cycle became sacred a day of forgiveness, peace and harmony, for being attuned to nature, and to exemplify that Time is Art.

In Roberts Creek, for the past six years, preparation for the Day starts a week or more before as hundreds of community artists cooperate to paint an original Mandala (featuring the 20 Solar Seals of the Galactic Maya.)


Artists Rob Marion and Erika Snowlake designed and developed the first Mandala as a statement of peace and love, and a positive reaction to the ugliness of hate graffiti in the area.

On July 25, we gather at Roberts Creek pier to honour the rising sun, then bless the newly created Mandala. These events are the only thing organized about the Day Out of Time. It just grows, sprouting music and magic, budding with happness and dance a day, a time for art.
