Samhain in Glastonbury

Posted on

I had a sneaky week-end off last week, and went to Glastonbury with a dear friend.  Did me the world of good to re-connect with that wonderful place.  As I am now too disabled to walk up to the top of the Tor, in less than say, a week, I found an obliging rock to perch on in the sunshine as my friend walked to the top to honour the four directions and meditate.  As I waited, thinking beautiful thoughts about the view and what a privilige it is to be able to do these things now openly, i.e. openly 'worship' our Goddess and Gods, I felt very sad suddenly that not so long ago this would not have been possible.  Millions of women and men were burnt, hanged, drowned and tortured for carrying out healings, or just living alone and being a bit 'different'.  As we remember and honour our dead this season, perhaps light a candle and spare a thought for those who were/are persecuted and murdered, simply for not being mainstream.
