A lovely equinox sunrise you had there i see, i love the little green jellyfish lens flare at the bottom left on this, it's great and on them all, should be famous that place, it's a little bit of perthshire in north wales, people did get about back then, just like we try to now. bladup Posted by bladup

It was a perfect day for an equinox sunrise, it should be better known, I joined the portal just to put this one on there. Perhaps the surroundings reminded someone of home. Went for a rather long walk from here. Stand by. postman Posted by postman

Glad it wasn't today, i don't know what it's like there, but it's horrible here [ rain], look forward to seeing where you went, i took a walk to merry maidens [past a few standing stones] hardly anyone there but the place was absolutely alive, i've only ever felt it like that once before and that was the summer solstice morning 2001, a lot of people don't get that much from the place [because of the crowds in the summer] but when it's like that it's an amazing place [and tregiffian,pipers etc], because as soon as you sit in the circle your head almost instantly goes into a trance, i ended up staying hours. bladup Posted by bladup

Only been the the Merry maidens twice, once on our own, and again with two casual visitors who stay a minute then gone. It always feels alive to me, most places do, except Barbrook 1, that place feels dastardly, as if it's out to get me.
Hafodygors wen is a very good friend with tons of good advice and ideas.
Sounds like a load of bollocks, but feelings are like that.

I think when you have a connection so strong with a place [like you do with Hafodygors wen and loads of others, and you may be showing a little scottish in you there with that 4 poster] it may mean you built it or had it built for you in a past life, god knows what happened to you at barbrook 1 though using the same analogy, it also may explain the obsession we have with the places, i remember watching the program cope made for the modern antiquarian, were he said that he thought there was only certain people [who were allowed to] planned and built these things [do you ever feel "bloody hell it's still here"?], get the builders in we want a monument sort of thing, we could have been one of those people [ the feeling was so strong in me i did build one, and was shocked when it ended up looking just like nine ladies without the embanking, which we were going to do if they hadn't pulled it down, i have always felt i had a hand in the embanked ones, the druid circle is also a very special place for both of us, so we may have had a hand in that one together, the stone circles [and henges] seem so uniform and planned, where as when someone died it was for the people that knew them to build a cairn for them somewhere they loved, and as you well know these don't have the same planning and are often just a pile of stones [ with a retaining kerb for your lucky ], chambered cairns also feel like they were built by the local communities as well, it's strange you don't feel the same about barbrook 2 and 3, i think to beat the curse you should take your tent and spend the night there, or are you scared of what you might dream? as i was once pushed to my death in a very strong past life off robin hoods stride, as an example of what would happen to every one else, if they didn't toe the line by a bigger tribe that was taking over in the peak district at the end of the bronze age, as we started to enter the age of fighting we call the iron age, when all hell broke loose, and we are still in it even now!!! sounds like a load of bollocks, but feelings are like that, eh. ps your an older soul than your brother, what with his thing for castles, showing the age he comes from, i think the age that interests us most is the age our soul come from. bladup Posted by bladup
