I am not one to 'spruik' 'cures' for anything - as we know this can be a dangerous and complex thing to do - in a world where even the best scientists and philosophers still struggle to understand this intricate universe of all things. We are however living in times - like all those so far shared by humanity - when the world can seem like a rather cruel, despairing or indifferent place - and these feelings can be exacerbated by just not being 'well' - in many senses of the word. I won't go on - I'm sure you get the gist - but as I watched this (one of numerous) short film from Colette O'Neill at her marvellous Bealtaine Cottage in West Ireland (which I'm sure many of you must already have heard of) - I thought about all of us here and how we can feel when things get tough. Colette is an inspirational person without a doubt and after 14 years ago buying a derelict cottage on 3 acres of overgrazed weedy paddock she transformed (in conjunction with 'Mother Earth' she would say) the land into something utterly wonderful. I am personally rather 'addicted' to her regular videos and writings and I am sure many of you would also find her soothing and sensitive commentaries very inspiring, engaging and relaxing - a real 'antidote' !!
Anyway here is a link to a wee sample of the world of Colette and Bealtaine Cottage :
Best wishes to you all
