from BARDO

The stars are in our belly; the Milky Way our umbilicus.

Is it a consolation that the stuff of which we’re made

is star-stuff too?

– That wherever you go you can never fully disappear –

dispersal only: carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen.

Tree, rain, coal, glow-worm, horse, gnat, rock.

20th year of my ISLANDS OF THE HEART retreat weeks, Isle of Iona, autumn 2021

At last, after a 2-year COVID break, these holistic writing retreats went ahead. Such joy. Some differences; some similarities; two lovely groups; spectacular (as always) island.

I don't know what's happened to Blogger – the photos are posted in the reverse order to the unfolding of the days and the order in which I posted them! Never mind. Scroll back in time.

All these photos are mine, except the wild geese, by Caroline Harmsworth (thank you, Caroline, for your permission).
