The ocean called me today to come and dance with her. It’s been a while so today I gave myself permission 😊 to adventure and take a break from college projects!

I asked to be guided to the perfect spots to commune magically with the elements to help release any limitations towards receiving joy and communion with the higher light that streams in through the solstice period ✨💚 I sang and danced on the limestone cliffs as the mighty Atlantic displayed it’s prowess pounding the land beneath me. 
This landscape ignites the mystery of the earths bounties within you, bringing you to presence in an instant.

The cobwebs have cleared and the confirmation of multiple rainbows 🌈 brought a renewed sense of wonder into the places where density has dwelled. So grateful for mother Eireann 🙏💚💚💚 #natureheals #doolin #fanore #burren #celtichearthealing #wildatlanticway #heartmagic #souladventures #stonewisdom #ancientireland #higherconsciousness #wintersolstice

Finally got to visit this ancient Irish site, Hill of Tara! So cool. These are mostly burial and ceremonial mounds, used from the stone age to medieval times. Also some pictures of cows and sheep 😊 #hilloftara #moundofhostages #rathofthesynods #ancientireland #medievalIreland #celticstudies

Newgrange, Neolithic site in County Meath, Ireland. This wall of quartz is not original, but was rebuilt using piles of the stones found on site in the ‘70s based on educated guesses by the archaeologist who worked the site for about a dozen years.

Как-то раз в Дублине на остановке ожидая автобус, я ненароком услышала разговор двух ирландцев о женщинах. 
Женщины сумасшедшие, говорил один. Вот взять моего друга, - развелся со своей женой практически после пятидесяти лет совместной жизни, а за душой ещё и три отпрыска. А знаешь из-за чего? Ты не поверишь, его жена нападала на него с ножом. С ножом, Джон! Стервы, такие стервы!

Royal Seat, Hill of Tara. The Lia Fáil (Stone of Destiny) at which the High Kings were crowned. from Wikipedia (backed by our guide): “According to legend, the stone would scream if a series of challenges were met by the would-be king. At his touch the stone would let out a screech that could be heard all over Ireland.” #ancientsites #ancientireland #megalithic #ireland #republicofireland #meath #countymeath #archaeology #ancienthistory #stoneofdestiny #standingstones #standingstone #megalith

The ruin of a cottage in the centre of the village of Tulla, County Clare, Ireland. Tulla is generally translated as Tulach in Irish, meaning ‘hill’. This is merely a shortened version of its full name, which is either Tulach na nAspal, the hill of the apostles or Tulach na nEaspag, the hill of the bishops. Tulla was originally established around St. Mochulla’s monastery. The house in the picture is situated next to the village’s picturesque cemetery..photos of which I’ll post another time.

The Irish Dullahan (also Gan Ceann, meaning "without a head" in Irish) is a type of spirit in Irish mythology. The Dullahan is depicted as a headless rider, usually on a black horse, who carries their own head under one arm. Usually, the Dullahan is male, but there are some female versions. The mouth is usually in a hideous grin that touches both sides of the head. Its eyes are constantly moving about and can see across the countryside even during the darkest nights. The flesh of the head is said to have the colour and consistency of moldy cheese. The Dullahan is believed to use the spine of a human corpse for a whip, and its wagon is adorned with funeral objects: it has candles in skulls to light the way, the spokes of the wheels are made from thigh bones, and the wagon's covering is made from a worm-chewed pall or dried human skin. The ancient Irish believed that where the Dullahan stops riding, a person is due to die. The Dullahan calls out the person's name, at which point the person immediately drops dead.

On the slopes of #keshcorran overlooking the beautiful Sligo countryside and Carrowkeel megalithic site in the far distance. 
The Caves of Ceis Corran are featured in the stories of Irish Mythology. Legendary Fionn mac Cumhaill (Finn Mac Cool), warrior and leader of the Fianna, used to watch the hunt from atop the mountain where the caves are found beneath. You can explore inside the caves, with a torch/flashlight recommended. Walk to the top of the hill and visit the neolithic cairn, likely to contain an unexcavated passage tomb, as well as other neolithic and bronze age remains.

I may be a gypsy at heart. My wanderlust started at an early age, partly inborn, partly through travels with my family from my place of birth and childhood, Alaska. We backpacked, we drove the AK, Yukon and Cassiar highways to the east and west coasts of the “Lower 48” U.S. Sometimes these trips were made with a trailerload of horses, usually they involved camping, and almost always they involved mosquitoes and bears. *
*
When I was ~4 years old, I got it into my head that I needed to visit Ireland. 4 years old! I had trouble sleeping from a young age (always on and ready to go-go-go, think-think-think and do-do-do). To help me sleep, my dad used to tell me stories of the place I dreamed of, saying that one day we’d go to Ireland together. *
*
The first time I visited Ireland it was on my own. I was 25 years old and fresh out of medical school, an eye-opening experience in which I learned many things, primary of which was that practicing medicine in our system was not for me, but that’s another story. I believe that first journey to Ireland saved me, from a lifepath I did not belong on. It gave me terra firma to stand on, the first real knowing and reckoning of myself--what my inner compass was telling me, relatively free from the noise of outside input, some of it well-meaning, some of it not, most of it misplaced. For the first time in my life, standing on a “green” road possibly a few thousand years old, I felt at home. Geographically, genetically, ancestrally and within myself. *
*
Since that first visit, I’ve been fortunate to go back six more times, with an 8th trip coming up in March, where I’ll be sharing this magical and transformational, singular place with a group of women who need a change in their lives: a real break, a removal from their day-to-day stories to find their true story. *
*
I can’t stay away from Éire, she has captivated me in the best ways possible and has been the guiding force of inspiration, change, grounding, centering, dreaming, imagination and life purpose in my own journey. And I am so excited to share these gifts she holds in a few short months. *
*
Go n-éirí an bóthar leat, 
May the road rise up to meet you on your journey.

“In a manner of speaking, the fact that humankind itself is unpredictable is the quintessential stumbling-block for archaeologists. We have to assume that the people whose dwelling places, artefacts, lives even, we are dealing with were rational, integrated, sane and sensible human beings. Then we look around at our own contemporaries and wonder how this belief can possibly be sustained.” —Laurence Flanagan.

This stone circle at Grange, is the biggest one in Ireland with 113 standing stones. The biggest one weighing in at 40 tonnes, is called Rannach Chruim Duibh (apparently this means Dark Bent One?). The circle is 45 meters wide and when parts of it were excavated, they found lots neolithic pottery pieces. This area also has a wedge tomb nearby and used to be quite popular with the Vikings who came through from Waterford on slim ships by river and overland 🌙☀️

The Rock of Cashel and Hore Abbey 🏰 Do yourself a favor and watch it in 4K fullscreen!
Link in bio. 
Easily one of our favorite stops of the trip. Annnd my friends, it is free! Free parking on the road in the middle and you can walk between the two ancient sites taking in their amazing views on the way. Also, there is many a sweet lil sheep buddies along the hillside. We are grateful we got a chance to see it from above. This was my #mavicpro2 maiden voyage. 
Prounced Cash-el and yes Hore... as in horse, without the S.

The Rock of Cashel and Hore Abbey 🏰 Do yourself a favor and watch it in 4K fullscreen! Link in bio. Easily one of our favorite stops of the trip. Annnd my friends, it is free! Free parking on the road in the middle and you can walk between the two ancient sites taking in their amazing views on the way. Also, there is many a sweet lil sheep buddies along the hillside. We are grateful we got a chance to see it from above. This was my #mavicpro2  maiden voyage. Prounced Cash-el and yes Hore... as in horse, without the S. #rockofcashel  #horeabbey  #ancientireland  #castle  #castle 🏰 #dronegram  #irelandtravel  #dronestagram  #dronevideography  #maidenvoyage  #irishcastle  #irelandtravel  #oldcastle  #oldabbey  #ancientabbey  #irelandcalling  #viewfromabove  #dronesofinstagram  #takemeback  #aerialviews  #ireland 🍀 #limestone  #medieval  #dangthatgrassisgreen  #adamisseconddrone  #flowerandstone 
In Irish mythology when Conchobar become king, he married Maeve, the daughter of Eochaidh Feidhleach, King of Tara. The marriage didn't end well. Conchobar went on to be known as a wise and consistently good king and reportedly ended up marrying three of Maeve’s sisters – Clothre, Eithne and Mughain.👀

"The Stormy Sea of Moyle" As #stormdiana rages outside, I thought this painting was appropriate...
The Sea of Moyle lies between Ballycastle on Northern Ireland's North Coast & Rathlin Island (home to Ireland's only 'upside down' lighthouse - as above in the painting). The area is steeped in myths & legends, the most famous of which are the four Children of Lir, whose jealous stepmother cast a spell on them, turning them into swans.  And so they were destined to spend three hundred years on the Stormy Sea of Moyle. Today, this beautiful part of the Sea of Moyle is a playground for seals & puffins, for dolphins passing through, for bobbing fishing boats, and of course for Archie the Gull, & a very mischievous Max the Crab. 
This print, & other work will be available at the upcoming @naturallyncg Christmas Fair in Ballycastle Marine Hotel, Sunday 9th December 2018 11-5pm
Or you can contact me directly for prints as always.
