Head Scratcher

Head Scratcher

~*~

Somewhere near Bolton Abbey in rural Yorkshire, England, stands this old Roman (?) wall which someone some time ago appears to have tried to “integrate” into an expanded road system. Looks to me like the small archway helps to accommodate cyclists. At any rate, it’s a real study … and a bit of a head scratcher.

Kudos to the local government for not tearing down history in favour of all things modern.

Thanks for visiting …

A New Horizon

Look Up

York Minster

~*~

I am always inspired by the joy to be experienced when looking to a Higher source and rising above the travails of life.

When we look up we welcome a new horizon.

When we rise above we make room for the heart to heal.

Note the heart shape in this glorious stained glass window.

Thanks for visiting …

This reflection written during our visit to England last fall.

An Ode to England

A part of my heart

In England lies,

Upon the green hills

Under grey skies.

By acorns grown old,

In villages quaint,

By waters run cold,

By the church of a saint.

Embraced by a wood,

Entranced by a dale,

Enamored of history

Hearty and hail.
