Writing retreat

I've just returned from a writing retreat in a secluded cottage in the Preseli Hills. It was a lovely week & the sun shone so warmly for the first three days that I sat outside in the garden to write- quite idyllic. I took a couple of photos there and when I uploaded them I noticed they have strange rainbow light anomalies- which I suppose could be a quirk of the sun hitting the camera lens- but I suspect they are something a bit more interesting!

Going away from everything (including mobile phone reception & the internet) is a chance to sink into a more peaceful and contemplative frame of mind, something we tend to get too little of in this day and age. Coming back to a busy household on Friday evening was a bit of a culture shock though!
On my way home I avoided looking at the map and asked Spirit to Guide me to somewhere interesting & found myself at Pentre Ifan, the remains of an ancient burial mound situated on a hilltop with views extending to the sea (or to a field of cows in the direction I managed to photograph!)
