    And before St. Kieran – if this is a natural spring as I suspect it is – this would have been sacred to a Celtic goddess. Great photo.

    Dear Christina

    Yes, yes of course. That’s one of the great pleasures and interests of the Celtic landscapes – is that the Great Goddess is everywhere – oftentimes, of course, masked by patriarchal overlays. But you can feel her everywhere. This was only one of the old springs and stone circles I visited in search of the Goddess. You might find the books by Janet and Colin Bord interesting, all about the ancient landscapes of Britain. And books by Michael Dames.

    These comments made our choice of the next image in the issue a no-brainer. Thanks!

    Those faded greens and purples look positively Beam-ish. Hello, Jeffery!
