On the Hill of Avalon

Warmest greetings. It’s been a while since we visited Glastonbury, and we felt it was time to make the pilgrimage once again. Because I am unable to travel, Amanda’s sister took my place. It was her first time in Avalon, and I think it fair to say it took her breath away. These pics, which take you from street level, to the view from St Michael’s Tower, were taken only days ago; while the featured pic was taken back in 2005. Please enjoy.

 

Lets stroll through fields and forests fair,

To touch the Earth, to breathe the air,

And take the pics we wish to share,

With all who love, and all who care.

On the Western Elevation

Cheers. We’re back again, while the going is good. Here are pics taken on the hill behind our house. Everything looked its best, and the sun was shining, for a change.  On the other hand, as sad as it is that so many trees are no more, due to disease, it is good to know that they were sacrificed to help preserve this ancient forest for future generations to enjoy.

Until next time, go in peace.

For no one has seen God at any time, but if there is anyone who represents God, it is the man who speaks His word. God is seen in the one who glorifies Him. But if our hearts are closed, even if we wait for a thousand years for the messenger to show himself, we shall never find him.

While it Lasts

A Happy New Year to everybody. In these photos you can see how mild, and muddy we are having it for the time of year. It was chillier, in fact, throughout July and August than it is today. You won’t hear any complaints, however, from local folk, who are enjoying it while it lasts.

My brotherly thanks to all readers, and fellow bloggers. If sometimes I can be a bit slow to respond to you, this is due entirely to the ups and downs of living daily with an infirmity.

Meanwhile, a brand new year of opportunity beckons, and, when we look for them, opportunities to do good come to each one of us every day.

With my best wishes to everyone: peace from Amras.

The glory of creation is in its infinite diversity

And the ways our differences combine to create 

meaning, and beauty.

The Foot of A Hill

TreeBeard's Portraits

At the foot of a hill,

By the back of the house,

Where a forest begins,

And this old man is standing.

 I will promise you this,

If your conscience is clear,

He will show you the faces,

Of faeries a-dancing.

Then wherever you are,

In this world of such glory,

You’ll never let anyone

Steal your story.

Namaste to all, I’m really very happy to be back among you so soon. It can’t happen often enough, as it signals that an extended period of mobility is on the go for me. Greeting every day with gratitude goes a long way.

I hope you like the pic above, please click on it for a great close-up view. That tree is one of many you can see from our windows; and it really does have those human-like features, though I admit to cheating very slightly, by putting in his right eye to mirror the genuine left eye. Click the thumbnail below to see his true features; the eye and nose, I think, are uncanny.

I notice that many of my fellow bloggers are having connection difficulties, and I am no exception, having daily drop-outs that can last for minutes, or hours. Also, mail and other notifications coming sometimes two to three days late. So, my late apologies to Jay, if you are reading, because all the no-show pics you sent arrived three days late. Never the less Jay, I thank you again.

And thanks too to all readers and followers, I would post so much more for you if I were physically able. Even so, let’s maintain ourselves daily in good cheer, for, as ever, who knows what blessings tomorrow is going to bring.

For now, peace from Amras.

To Touch The Earth

Lets stroll through fields and forests fair,

To touch the Earth, to breathe the air,

And take the pics we wish to share,

With all who love, and all who care.

 

Namaste, and thank you to all who have looked in during my absence. I so very much appreciate your likes and follows; and I truly wish that I had  the strength to return your kindness more regularly.

This is my way of making up to all the good folk who share in this peaceful and enlightening exchange of blogs and posts.

The pics, taken by Amanda in  Snowdonia, take us on another journey through the stony Welsh landscape that she loves so much. I hope you enjoy them, and until we return again, I wish you, and all with whom we share this living world, peace.

Amras.
