I am still feeling the glow from the wonderful time we spent at The Mother camp. We began our time together with a moving and beautiful ceremony led by Keeley, where we opened a sacred space around the camp and in our hearts. At the end of the camp, although we closed the circle, that space - that feeling - remains in us. I would never have imagined that 5 days spent in a field could have been so enriching and life-affirming - but it was.
Crofters on the Western Isles. the change will be gradual to start with. Quite a bit of remedial work is to be done to the house we have bought, and we cannot start working on the land for a few months. Still - lots of planning, organising and travelling back and forward for a few months - I hope we don't lose the excitment of boarding the Tarbert ferry. It means that blogging will become very sporadic for a while. We have no broadband - or even phone at the croft as yet - and I am quite taken with the idea of being out of contact for a while We will be back down in a couple of weeks, and I will post the latest happenings then, but the time away will get longer and longer.
I just want to thank you all for all the lovely comments and support you have given me,and for your own inspiring blogs. While I am not stopping the blog, it may be a few months before normal service resumes. So, until then I hold you all in a sacred space in my heart. xxx
