What happens when we take ourselves on a journey, to somewhere we’ve never been before? I’m heading to the lands of faeries to find out!
It’s the place our mind goes when we slow down our doing body and read, daydream, paint, or garden. We lose ourselves to other ways of being.
It’s what some of us do only on vacation. It’s what psychologists are trying to tell parents… Unstructured time is important!
Travel does it for me, too. It opens my mind, stretches my imagination, invigorates and refreshes. Immersed in sights, sounds and smells that are different, I experience the awe this world has to offer.
It’s the little things that are often most inspiring, the things that one is too busy to notice on our daily rush from one task to another.
Tomorrow morning, I’ll be touching down briefly on the Emerald Isle on the way to England. There’ll be just enough time for a wee visit to the Hill of Tara, to breathe in the sacred place where kings married goddesses, where the mounds and stones measure the passage of time.
Enchantment is food for the soul, and I’m ready to see the menu! It’s important research for an astrologer during this Saturn-Neptune square, at least that’s the blarney I’m telling meself!
