I was talking to a friend the other week about Ireland. He helped me come up with words as to what it was like being there and why it was so meaningful for me.
Ireland was like seeing my very heart & soul captured in a landscape. It was like peering into the deepest places of who I am, what I love, and seeing it sprawling out before one’s eyes in glorious reality. It captured the inside of me visually.
I felt like I fit in Ireland. My heart had found a missing piece it’d always been searching for. The essence of me, somehow, was in this countryside. My love of the earth, nature, beauty, depth, mystery, spirituality, truth…it all came together in the land.
I was so full of joy at seeing it all around me, I teared up multiple times on the trip. Tears sprung from this deep place in me. It was so full to me. So meaningful.
So tonight (and next week), I thought I’d share some photos that capture the landscape of my soul so beautifully.
Because it is truly a soulful place. I wish pictures did it justice, but really, even my camera can’t catch it. Words can’t even capture it. I feel so tongue-tied when I think of it.
