OK...so now I've been tagged by a new blogging friend: http://shespeaks.webs.com/mythoughts.htm
Here's how it works:
1) Find a book closest to me with at least 123 pages.
2) Turn to page 123 and go down five sentences.
3) Type the next three lines into my blog.
4) Tag five other bloggers.
The book closest to me is...Kindling the Celtic Spirit by Mara Freeman....i turn to page 123 to see what i shall find...and its a section entitled The Sacred Grove...(how interesting...i think.)here's the three sentences, five sentences in...
In the Celtic landscape, hazel (trees) grew in "thin" places where wisdom might be found (and where, in celtic mythology, typically the entrances to the Otherworld are found - ak). The Gaelic word for hazel is calltuin (kawl-tin) and a number of places called Calton or Carlton are associated with entrances to the Otherworld, a famous one being Calton Hill in Edinburgh, which was still used for magical gatherings in the 17th century...Tara, the royal seat of kingship in Ireland, was built close by a hazel grove...
