In the depths of the Forest...

I woke at 4.30am to spend as much time alone in the Forest before the rest of the family stirred...
So glad I did :)

Here I am sitting in the dark, green half-light,
safe, alone, alert, listening...

The stillness is accompanied by a glorious, mysterious but GENTLE silence, a sort of SHIMMER of soundlessness.
Sara Maitland, A Book of Silence

Find out who you are and do it on purpose.
Dolly Parton

All around me I see Soul-friends - Oak, Ash, Birch, Yew,
I hear my Brothers and Sisters calling - Fox, Deer, and Owl.
Here I knew I would find my Name,
Here, in the mossy mud...

My name is Selene... 

Ancient and wild,
Dark and glowing, 
Mad according to the world,
But oh so deeply sane,
Knowing the Truth of the Ages.


  1. A Book of Silence is one of my favourite books :)

    1. I intend to read it again, Alison, when this course is over... It's a favourite of mine too :)


Your comments mean a lot. They show I'm not alone. Thank you!
