the richness before our eyes

For the first two weeks of September I traveled Ireland with longtime friends who invited me to simply say where I wanted to go and they would organize it and take me there, They did! It was deeply rich, and it will take me more time than I realized to allow the layers to come to articulation. When it is right, I will share more here.

One of our conversations stays with me. It regarded the number of stone ruins that cover the landscape - mainly Abbeys and Castles, and though I had seen many of them before, I felt a deeper connection on this trip, some kind of ancient presences as I walked among them.

But my guides were amazed at this. In our conversations they noted a few times in different ways,  "but I see them everyday, and everywhere I turn. I suppose I no longer see them at all!" Of course that would be the way...when in NL I discover it all over again when I show it to visitors.

Since returning home, I have become more conscious of my own living place. What am I so accustomed to seeing that I no longer see? What beauty all around me am I missing? What layers of beauty and presence are already there, asking only my attention to be seen and to give amazement?
