After spending several days in the city, Cinnia was eager to get back to nature. She travelled down to Wicklow Mountains National Park to spend some time on the trails there. Cinnia had read of the nemetons or sacred groves of the Druids. It was believed these sites were infused with the energy of the earth and a place of meditation and prayer. Within these spaces one could channel the spirits and experience mysteries or miracles.
To find such a space one had to open their heart and mind to all the beauty of nature; the warmth of the sun on the skin, the lightness of the air, the cooling of water, and the vitality of the earth. Cinnia took one of the trails to the Poulanass Waterfall.
It’s a beautiful hike and a beautiful place but I’m just not getting any vibes that there is anything special or otherworldly about it. Maybe it’s just too trafficked or perhaps I’m just not ready yet. It feels really good to be outside and getting some exercise at least.
Cinnia continued on the trail heading to the lake. She heard a chorus of frogs and it made her smile. When she was a kid she loved to listen to the peepers in the back yard in the evening. This reminded her of that. She could see the lake in the distance. Off on the opposite shore she saw some deer meandering around the tall grasses. Since she was getting hungry she found a spot on a hill overlooking the lake and marsh to stop and sit and enjoy the lunch she packed.
Once upon a time...
