A magical light at St. George’s Church, Fordington, Dorchester…..


Re-tracing the steps of Roman times,
And many centuries past.

Fresh pasties and apple juice,
Savoured in Thomas Hardy land.

Dappled sunlight on a river,
Running through clear and true.

Pure light shining,
Reflected in eyes and smiles.

A time of heart memories,
Of peace for joyful souls.

    The magical light of the church and your experience, especially through your beautiful poem, Jane, shines into my soul all the way across the Atlantic! Good luck with your home hunting! XO ♥

      A special light still shines and my intuition is guiding me…still adventuring on the home hunting front, but having fun along the way. Bless my Mum and Dad for sheltering me, and feeding me so well, while I hunt! ❤ and many hugs to you xXx

    The poem is wonderful, Jane, and the picture is mesmerizing. The light is truly magical, and possibly spiritual, too. What a delightful combination of words and picture.

      Hi Marylin, thank you. The light lit a spark and I have made a decision on where I come in to land. There are many opportunities for work and creativity there and I am going to look at a possible home next Wednesday. All good stuff. Much love to you and yours. Xx

    O, Jane, it sounds absolutely sacred…….as I know it is.

    And since I know you’ll read this before approving it, I can ask what may be a foolish question, especially since I’m not familiar with the language. I’m thinking you may have meant ‘Fresh pastries and apple juice’ but it’s possible I just don’t know what a pastie is…….since it’s a term used fairly exclusively by burlesque workers in this part of the world! 🙂 I surely love you! ~ B

      You are a delight Bobbie, a real delight. A pastie is a traditional Cornish meat pie wrapped in pastry, that looks like a half moon. I’ll add a pic to my blog post later, so you can see. I have reached out to you lately in my thoughts, as I ponder on where I am now and feel my steps forward. I wish to come in to land, but it is the where and how that I am pondering. I so need to be rurally based around animals. It will all flow forward I know, I just felt that you would understand my ponderings! Love always to you Bobbie, xXx

        I do……… I know you’ve seen cats and dogs do it, and (in fact) all animals do it. They circle around a place before deciding where to settle in. It’s a wonderful practice of alignment. 🙂 I am here; don’t worry, I won’t let you fall……. ❤

    Hello Jane buddy,

    Lights do play tricks and the lights here seem to convey spiritual delight.

    All the best for the week ahead 🙂

    The heavenly light drifting above the pews brings the Holy Spirit to mind…

    Hi Jane,
    Pray all is well with you and David. That your days are bright and your heart is happy.

    Especially, hope there is goodness for your mum and dad as they get on in their new adventure.

    Sorry I haven’t been ’round. Life has been a whirlwind of health and legal issues.

    My daughter and granddaughter had to move into the house. It took a while, but things have settled. We are so blessed.

    hugs n blessings, my friend ~ maxi
