For all the indoor meditation and ceremony one can engage in, for me there is nothing quite like walking the land. Just being out there, connecting with Nature, being able to touch, sense, feel and experience it is second to none.
Today the wind was blowing like crazy, snow was in the air, it was really freezing, but it was wonderful. The sun was breaking through dark skies and with the speed of the wind, those dark skies were suddenly clear blue, and then dark again, quite incredible. I just love it, I love being outside.
I know that I'm well blessed to live in such a lovely part of the world. South Somerset, in the South West of the UK, is just so very beautiful and it's so easy to take this special place for granted. We also have a large number of sacred sites.
Today I took a walk around a place that has always been special to me. Like Glastonbury Tor, Burrow Hill, in Kingsbury Episcopi, just outside Martock, Somerset, can be seen from miles around. It is a large hill, with a single tree on the top of the hill, and the tree looks out at the amazing surrounding countryside. I made a brief video of it today:
As you can hear, the wind was in full force!
There is something magical about standing on high ground. Calling to the Lord and Lady here this morning was a beautiful experience and even though my extremities were freezing to the point of frostbite, I am really glad I made the effort to visit!
