Thanks for this wonderful post!

I'm hoping to visit the Avebury Stones this February.
I've actually never seen any neolithic sites in the UK, as I only really see cities when I travel there usually. So that's pretty exciting.

I think I get where you and Cope are coming from regarding engaging with the landscape. It took me some time to connect with the landscape of my ancestors. I suppose when you are younger and forming your own identity, you imagine that it all comes from the external; urban environments (where I grew up), scenes, subcultures etc.

The more I learn about my ancestors, and engage with the Island landscape from whence my people came (and where we lived as Pagans and pirates), the more I realise I really am a wild woman of the windy west; My ill-advised mission to bring my friends there during far-from-ideal sailing conditions further underscored this. I wanted them to experience the mind-expanding environment... But I think I merely traumatized them.
