 Deep within your soul lies a fire that directs your passion and purpose. Often this flame lies quiet like the ancient whispers of smoldering embers; sometimes directed by those internal voices, not belonging to you,  that came from another time and place. You reach out to your brothers and sisters and echo these words:  WHO AM I?

Near Brynberian, Wales, UK

There are places in the land that you go to look at, because they are beautiful, dramatic, impressive, and then there are those places that look back at you, or rather, look to you. The Preseli Hills of West Wales, or as they are known locally and historically, the Preseli Mountains and the surrounding ancient oak woodlands, are such a place. This place resonates with belonging, which is to say, it is set upon by longing – a longing for remembrance. The burial chambers, tumuli, ancient hill forts, hut circles, stone circles, henges, standing stones and other prehistoric remains attest to this longing, which comes from something, or rather someone, long forgotten. In places such as these, where the distinction between then and now seems to waver, where the cloud descends and makes a little world out of you and an ancient standing stone, you might hear, on the wind, the distant voices of your ancestors.” -Rosie McLachla
