Take My Breath Away

Hello again, this must be a record, I don’t remember posting so frequently since 2012, or so. What has encouraged me to work so hard, are the wonderful photos that my old friend Chris is sharing. Also, Amanda and myself have taken full advantage of our photogenic location during this most welcome Indian Summer.

From Castlerigg Stone Circle, in the Lake District, to Snowdonia in Wales, Chris, and his sturdy son, Joe, roughed it out in a windy tent, to bring us these photos. My favourite is the rainbow. A couple of hours ago, I was sitting in the warm part of my garden, contemplating the creation of this post, when something prompted me to look straight up into the zenith. Hanging there was an upside-down rainbow, which was waiting, it seemed, to simply take my breath away. It deserves to be shared, so I took the photo at the foot of this page with my iPhone. I hope you find these signs of the times as wonderful as I do.

“For the sake of sanity, remember:

‘The map is not the territory,

the word is not the thing it describes.

‘ Wherever the map is confused with the

territory, a ‘semantic disturbance’ is set up in the organism.

The disturbance continues until the limitation is recognised.”

To Touch The Earth

Dru1 Dru2 Dru3 Dru4 Dru5 Dru6 Dru7 Dru8 Dru9 Dru10

 

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.

So Much Depends

The wind in the sycamore sounds like the sea,

And whispers can summer be over so soon?

The leaves singing softly, of what is to be,

Say so much depends on the sun and the moon.

To all good folk who pray for peace, so much depends on you. Sleep  well tonight. Namaste from Amras.

Last November, we posted “Peace from The Land of Rivers and Rocks”.*  This month, Amanda returned to the’ Dru Yoga Retreat’ in rugged Snowdonia, to tough it out in the unseasonably chilly mountains of mythic Wales.

In the footsteps of the Mabinogi, she trekked through the dark Celtic landscape of local legends, and she took these pics to share with all who couldn’t be there.

There were so many great pics that I will need to make this the first of a series of posts.  I hope you like them.

 

For the last few weeks, I haven’t been able to write at length, the old keyboard is becoming too hard to reach.  To remedy this, I’m hoping to get a remote keyboard in the very near future.  Perhaps then I will be able to write for longer periods. Please wish me luck with that.

 

Thank you so much, all followers, old and new, for the wonderful atmosphere you are creating, collectively, on the net.

Until our next post,  Namaste from Amras.
