I came to see the largest stone circle in the world and found destiny asking me if I wanted to dance again like I did in the long summer of a century lost. Holding palms upward to the silent sky, the gift is accepted and the sun lays down behind the far hill to rest.
Laying on my back, it's blue sky instead of buildings, clouds instead of city, treetops instead of passing people. I don't need to see the grass under my grateful back to luxuriate in its gentle, gracious, gliding green.
A day of introspection gives us space to courageously, gently, lovingly peer into ourselves. We can view and appreciate the good we have done and acknowledge and forgive ourselves for any words or actions which do not honor us.
The early light that heralds the coming sun so gently pulses, and this majestic emanation causes the jaw to drop and an “Ah” to utter. The outer beauty of the world and the inner beauty of the soul are harmonized – majesty within and without.
