Game of Thrones

www.bealtainecottage.comWestern skies move slowly, as clouds bank up from the Atlantic Ocean.

www.bealtainecottage.comWarm air merges with rain sodden earth and the mist rises, wisping it’s way over mountains, that sweep down to bog and lough on the western shores of Europe.

www.bealtainecottage.comIreland moves inexorably towards Midsummer and Solstice.

www.bealtainecottage.com 002The settlements dotting the landscape are timeless, houses today, cottages not so long ago and earth forts before that.

www.bealtainecottage.com 003Mountain, sky, water and earth hold the memory of past lives, all gazed upon by peoples from the past, invader and native alike.

www.bealtainecottage.comThis land has captivated the hearts of countless generations, breaking many on the way.

www.bealtainecottage.com 041Revered as sacred, farmed and fought over, grown men have wept unashamedly, as they left from the American Wake, never to return.

www.bealtainecottage.com 017Everything we have comes from the land; food, clothes, homes, furniture and health…especially health.

www.bealtainecottage.com 056The cycle of life is bound, woven tightly, into the land.

www.bealtainecottage.com 042We are woven into the land, despite the layers of seeming impermeability we  weave between ourselves and the sacred earth.

www.bealtainecottage.com 011In these days of threat and uncertainty, as our leaders play out the dangerous game of thrones that threatens war, our return to the land affords us time of calm and meaning.

www.bealtainecottage.com We inhabit one very small and exquisitely beautiful planet in a universe of dying stars.

www.bealtainecottage.comWe are of stardust itself…united on this small, blue, beautiful planet.
