Music Monday - Cymbeline and Retreat Overview

Loreena McKennitt always seems appropriate for mountains, forests and the Autumnal Equinox -

Just back from yet another fabulous fall retreat -
 The water, sky,
 mountains, ancient trees,

 the cabin,

 bones and wildlife,

 sun, forest,

 rivers, streams,

 many, many rooty nests filled with 'dragon's eggs', 

so much art, food, good company and many many things to love.... 

More photos and reports anon!

Isn't it interesting how much wild beauty is accompanied by the bones of dead things? It reminds me of some of the old illustrations of Sleeping Beauty, with the briars and thorns surrounding the castle, all in bloom, only partially concealing the rusting armor and bleaching bones of long-dead knights.

Beautiful. Dangerous. :)

I don't know if I've ever seen a prettier stream. You have the loveliest retreats! :)

Soozcat - I know the illustrations of which you speak! Trina was always a bit macabre in her approaches. :-)

The Garden Ms. S - thank you. It is an enchantingly beautiful place.
