we start the first of the Sanhein fires tonight at Hazelbrand with our guest, Barbara from the Sanctuary of 7Seven Good Days.
For the Traveler
Every time you leave home,
Another road takes you
into a world you were never in.
new strangers on other paths await.
new places that have never seen you
will startle a little at your entry.
old places that new you well
will pretend nothing
changed since your last visit.
when you travel, you find yourself
alone in a different way,
more attentive now
to the self you bring along,
your more subtle eye watching
you abroad; and how what meets you
touches that part of the heart
that lies low at home....
poem by John O'Donohue
