Croeso, Tervetuloa, Välkommen, Wilkommen, Failtè and Welcome! (Welsh, Finnish, Swedish, German, Scots Gaelic - if you know already, well done!) I've got a feeling (funny things, feelings…) that this blog of mine is going to expand and evolve (endless forms most beautiful, maybe?) quite beautifully over time, as the things I think of, (and sometimes … Continue reading Well met! A Welcome Greeting to all!
I had an idea - a community of beautiful buildings...among other things...in a high place; a self-sufficient community of peace and spirituality, with all the needed communal structures gradually created (ie. a school; a kindergarten; a library; a meeting-and-sharing place; places to swim and walk etc.) by the various people who live there for the … Continue reading An idea for a community – in the Pyrenees.
