Alba

“The truest form of prayer is communion with Nature. It is not vocal. Go to a lonely spot, if possible a mountaintop, on a clear, star-lit night, ponder the majesty and order of the infinite macrocosm. Then consider the intricacies of the equally infinite microcosm. Understand that you are on the one hand inconsequential beyond comprehension in the size of things, and on the other hand, you are potentially valuable beyond comprehension as a link in destiny’s chain. There you begin to understand how pride and self can co-exist with respect and reverence. There we find harmony with Nature and with harmony comes strength, peace and certainty.”

This county of Alba was ablichtutely waterlogged and very, very cold! Inbhir Theòrsa and Tunga were both friendly, Loch Loyal was serene, dissipating stillness impressing upon my restlessness. Bothy's Strabeg and Achnanclach were warm, emptied but full of ancestral spirit; Diùranais seafront was a charm of vibrant glistening light.
