This was my first blog post ever on 19 February. I am re blogging it and look forward to your comments.
I grew up in a quiet village in Stirlingshire, Scotland surrounded by unspoiled countryside. In school, I learned the names of native wild flowers, birds and trees.
Every summer, my family returned to their roots in The Rosses area of County Donegal, Ireland – http://www.discoverireland.ie/places-to-go/donegal .
My heart always broke in two on leaving my ancestral paradise.
In 1999, I left Scotland and settled in The Rosses for good. This place embraces me now, with it’s wild rugged landscape, beautiful beaches, lakes and boglands – home to carpets of smiling wild flowers. It holds me in a magical, mystical energy that is both healing and cathartic.
Today, I have released so much of the Past, going from a life that was way too fast to one in the slow lane. My nieces used to call me Auntie B, for being busy like a bee. Thankfully, B is now for Brigid!
How has your chosen place affected you?
