Magic of the Land
Welcome to the Magic of the Land and some rare moments I'm sure you have all experienced at some stage of your life.
It was sparked off for me when I saw a photo of a white rainbow taken over the Scottish moor 22nd of November 2016. Melvin Nicholson was out on the moor south of Glen Coe on Sunday when the unbelievably beautiful white rainbow appeared. Mr Nicholson said:
“It's a colourless rainbow that is made up of tiny water droplets that cause fog”
He said an isolated windswept tree framed by the fog completed the shot.
It was beyond magical.
“One of those days you will always remember for a long long time to come” he added.
Now that got me thinking there have been many a time I have been out in nature in the past and of late, only to recall moments like this.
Seeing the magic of the land there is a certain kind a feeling and memories that comes from being out in nature.
For me Tara brings that feeling to me and I'm sure you all have such a place that speaks to the soul and brings ease to the body and lightens your mood.
I always feel better after being in nature. Like it has a magic energy about it that lifts your soul. Woodlands, streams and rivers, trees, sacred land and so much more.
So with the help of this rare and beautiful rainbow I thought "let's get some photos of rare moments of the magic of the land" and I'd like to start by sharing this beautiful photo taken in Scotland. And, of course, there is no time or date for this post... just magic.

It was very healing to walk bare foot in the sand... the smell of fresh seaweed and the sound of the waves.
Brat Bhride - blessing the land every St.Brigid's Eve
I leave it there because on the Eve of St Bridget's day it is said she wipes the land and blesses it with the morning dew and the cloth left out.

The Magic of the Land? Getting out in nature is a natural healer, that's the magic in it.
Labyrinth at An Tobar, Co. Meath
Bernadette Mac and Martin share information and insights and explain how this is synchronised with the Mound of the Hostages on Tara. And how sometimes others, two legged and four legged, join in your walk.
I walked up the steps, came across a rabbit and thought I will follow him, just like Alice in Wonderland... only the rabbit was not white and I was not Alice, or maybe ... I have come to see that we are never really lost when we find places like Loughcrew
