Ramblings about life . . .

What I share about my life is simply to help reinforce the understanding that it is possible to live with love and laughter, in between the tough times.

Life is what we make of it, no matter how harrowing. We accept and embody this with-in ourselves, thereby allowing the energy to manifest outwardly in our reality.

It starts with each one of us as an individual to form the collective consciousness.

Be the dream.

We honour the light and the life within you.

Please be aware - I upload other bloggers' posts and then delete after a month. This is my journey and others help me understand where I am, until they become irrelevant (a few posts excepted).

Herstmonceux Castle


Herstmonceux Castle"By the end of the 12th Century, the family at the manor house at Herste had considerable status. Written accounts mention a lady called Idonea de Herste, who married a Norman nobleman named Ingelram de Monceux. Around this time, the manor began to be called the 'Herste of the Monceux’; a name that eventually became Herstmonceux (pronounced Herst-mon-soo)."

We spent the day at Hertsmonceux on Sunday.

The moated castle is now an educational centre, having been donated to a Canadian University and therefore is not open to the public.

The gardens were laid out in such a way that one led into another and another, each one opening to a fresh delight. Everywhere were little blackboards with sayings - mostly from Shakespeare. There were a couple of sundials, random sculptures, butterflies, bees, Canadian geese, a displaying peacock and a distinctly unimpressed peahen. A wonderland for children and adults alike.

Once we'd explored all the gardens, we moved into the surrounding forested area where we found, much to our happy surprise - Herst-Henge.

Various tree stumps have been placed in a circle, some of them with runes etched in red.

The first rune we saw was BEORC - 'New Beginnings' birth, marriage. I found this very apt and no coincidence - the day before had been the Super Moon and we'd experienced some new beginnings.
The only rune we couldn't find was ODAL - 'Legacy'. Lol, Greg pointed out that I'd left a legacy when I quickly nipped into the bushes to have a pee.

Once we'd explored the whole area, we sat under the Chestnut trees in the tea garden having a bite to eat.

Sweet chestnuts
