" Live out of your imagination

not your history "

Stephen R. Covey

Only Connect

June 5th, 2011

After almost a month away it feels good to be back in Sussex. Many thanks to Maria for running the blog while I’ve been away, and to our guest writers who have kindly contributed posts!

In looking through the photos I took while away it seemed to me that this was the best one to symbolize the feeling of the time away. This picture is of a section of the ceiling in the crypt of Chartres cathedral. For years they had assumed the whitewashed ceiling held no secrets, until one day they discovered this beneath the whitewash and plaster. How symbolic! If we find the time to look more deeply, we discover the sun, moon and stars – and the hand with ogham like ciphers around it, emerges from a web. What was it E.M.Forster famously said? ‘Only connect.’

A section of the ceiling in the crypt at Chartres, which is directly above an ancient well, said to be revered by the Druids.
