Get away day had finally arrived! There was hardly a cloud in the bright blue sky. Cinnia’s flight didn’t leave until afternoon. She ate a leisurely breakfast and turned on some music as she checked the weather in Ireland for the next few weeks. Mild temperatures in the 60s and 70s were forecasted.
Perfect weather for hiking and exploring the countryside, and I have my rain gear – just in case.
Next she went over all her travel documents.
Passport – check. Plane tickets – check. Lodging confirmations – check. Travel books – check. Maps and directions – check. Everything’s ready.
She grabbed her Kindle and perused her reading list. She made sure she had all of the myths and legends she had been studying loaded. She also had plenty of light reading for the 7 hour-long flight. Her laptop and camera were packed in her carry-on; along with a few snacks. She double checked that she had all the correct chargers and power cords, and of course an adapter.
I’m ready. I think I’ve got everything I’ll need. If I don’t it’s too late to worry about it now – I’ll just have to do without. I can always pick up anything I’m missing while I’m there anyway.
At this point it was time to leave – she headed out to the airport. Getting through security was a breeze. It wasn’t terribly crowded. To pass the time while waiting to board she went over her itinerary.
There’s so much to see and do – I can’t wait to get started!
Once on the plane she settled into her seat and got as comfortable as possible. She had a window seat and was content to watch the city fall away and the wispy clouds float by allowing her mind to drift aimlessly in anticipation of the trip ahead. It wasn’t long before the drone of the plane had lulled her to sleep.
“Welcome Cinnia.” A woman in a flowing white robe greeted her. Cinnia looked around, she was in a stone room and there were others dressed in white robes, like the woman who addressed her.
“What is this?” Cinnia asked.
“It is the Druids Hall. Come, I’ll show you around.” Cinnia followed the woman. They walked out into a beautiful garden; it was lush and vibrant. “We often come here to meditate and become one with nature. The trees, the Earth, animals, and people – we are all one. A change in one creates a ripple that brings change to all. Remember this as you begin your journey. You seek to reignite your gift, in doing so you will find so much more.”
Once upon a time...
