Amsterdam

Image of an Amsterdam canal From Wikipedia. Click for original.

As I sit here listening to the ragweed and grass whisper next to a canal, I know that this has all been seen before and will be seen again. It’s not exactly the same, because we aren’t on a circle, we’re in a spiral.

The land does not belong to us; we belong to the land.

snowyhills

When I connect to this land, I aim to connect not with a mythic, misty past made up of ‘the Celts’ or other such imaginary peoples, but with the real layers of life of which the land is made: the human lives which belonged to this land before me, in all their amazing diversity. [Read more...]
