Iona Sacred Isle. Scottish West Coast.

Iona Sacred Isle
I have just spent a week on Iona staying at the Findhorn Foundation's cottage. Seven strangers came together to create a wonderful group dynamic.We were blessed with exceptional weather and I took advantage of that to swim from the white sandy beaches. The water was clean, clear and cold, very energizing!
I also painted a couple of pictures. This one is of Lagandorain ( now a hostel ) with the islands tallest hill behind painted in early morning light. The hill is called Dun I ( pronounced Dun-ey much to the amusement of Aussie visitors ) and I painted it from Croc an Suidhe ( hill of the seat ) which is reputed to be saint Columba's favorite spot..

Flowing into Loch Morlich.

This is my painting of the stream that runs into Loch Morlich ( Cairngorms National Park, Scotland ) and was painted at the scene. It is acrylic and is 40cm x 30cm
The stream is called Abhainn Ruigh-eunachan and I must look up it's meaning in Gaelic.
The Cairngorm national park is very beautiful and if you have never visited please put it on your bucket list

Andy Murray, Wimbledon and Maitreya the future Buddha

Now that we have got a British winner of Wimbledon in Andy Murray I must revise my Blog of the 3rd November 2011. In that Blog ' Maitreya the future Buddha. Why the long wait ' I said waiting for Maitreya to appear was like waiting for a British man to win Wimbledon! Now we have one. Does this mean Maitreya will arrive soon to lead the world out of darkness? Well why not? Andy's win according to channel 4 news is adding to a resurgence in the British economy and British spirits.Well done Andy, fantastic achievement and so much more than just a wonderful tennis match!If you are interested in reading my now outdated Blog click the link below or go to Buddhism, my personal exploration.
