Took a break from taking care of convalescing daughter to walk across the hills to the sea. What a treat! Blue skies, sunshine-coloured gorse buds, skylarks, sunlight on white cliffs, flocks of oyster-catchers with their penny-whistle cries, the rolling, sensual downs. The Gorse is Onn in Ogham, signifying sunshine and joy. Its spiky leaves and fierce thorns protect small birds and insects while brightening our day with its beautiful blossoms.
Days such as this are gifts of promise from The Earth Goddess. Our hearts are uplifted, and we walk as one with Nature.
