If You Believe

032-3

“Once upon a time you believed in Love and Magic.
Then, one day, you stopped. That’s why you never found it.
You stopped listening to what you felt. You need to fix that….
Just remember –
Playing it safe is a very risky business….
It’s what you say ‘YES’ to that determines your life.
The ‘NO’S just lead NO – where.”

[From the film “If You Believe”]

Magical, Mystical Midsummer’s Eve

SDC10687 (7)-2

My mind travelled back to Midsummer’s Eve, when I had walked  on the beach at Black Rock in West Wales. It was the most wonderful night of my life. The moon was full, its myriad rays dancing across the tranquil ocean and rippling gently at the water’s edge.

Behind me, the dunes loomed out of the gathering darkness, like weird ethereal spectres in the night. The sand shimmered around me, a mirage of palpating, vibrant, golden energy. The star-spangled indigo heavens stretched majestically above me, a tapestry of cascading starlight interwoven with moonbeams.

The moment was both hypnotic and sublime. I was delirious with joy as I walked, barefoot, my mind unencumbered, my heart bathed in rapture. There was truly magic in the air that night.

Life is Eternal

“I am the daughter of Earth and Water,

And the nursling of the Sky;

I pass through the pores of the ocean and shores;

I change, but I cannot die…”

Percy Bysshe Shelley, 1820

“Happiness, not in another place, but in this place…

not for another hour, but for this hour.”

 Walt Whitman

What a beautiful place is Llyn Brenig.   Situated in the unspoilt countryside of the Denbigh Moors, on the border between the counties of Conwy and Denbighshire, it is one of the largest lakes in Wales.

There are nature trails, archaeological trails, picnic areas, water sports, a visitor centre, an exhibition telling the story of Llyn Brenig and its archaeological history, and a restaurant with good food and great views from the terrace.

Eternal Romance

004-6004-5004-7004-9

“Burning sun, shimmering moon,

Creation in motion.

Sunbeams, warming the land,

Giving light to the earth.

And softer gleams – moonbeams –

Dancing the night away

Beneath a midnight sky.

Shyly retreating as night draws to a close

And the sun yawns on another day.

Regal sun, romantic moon,

In an everlasting love affair.

Destined not to be together –

Until the universe disappears

And they meld back together into the void,

Reunited at last, for an eternity.”
