The Ladies of St Nectan's Glen


The Lady of St. Nectan's Glen
Has eyes the colour of autumn leaves
Hair which feels like moss through the trees
Skin as pale as waterfall foam
A voice sweet as bells ringing
Calling me home

Throughout the month of September I went on a magical and sacred journey throughout the UK and Eire. I was a guest guide for Dragon's Eye Tours - a small Australian touring company, and I had a wonderful, life changing experience being able to spend a month just being in these magical places. A month living and breathing meditation, exploration, history, myth, magic, ritual and archaeology. I met some wonderful, knowledgeable and fascinating guest guides throughout the trip including a chance to reunite with Ronald Hutton (he should be a Sir eh?!), Maria Wheatley and Janet Farrar and Gavin Bone.

I have so much to write and say about this trip, I'm looking over my diary of the time now, trying to work out the best way to format it - but for now I will leave you with a painting I have done inspired by an unforgettable trip to St Nectan's Glen and Kieve Waterfall.

These Lady's are drawn from a vision I had whilst standing in the pools of the waterfall.
I'm hoping these will make a lovely edition to the oracle Deck I am working on.I have so much more to share, so will be back soon.

Any thoughts comments and feedback appreciated. As long as it's constructive :)
