And yet, it was a day of castle-hopping in Wales: visiting and exploring Castle Coch and Castle Caerphilly. They were astounding and beautiful and charming – i love castles, they hold much history, memory, and lost time…
The greatest castle is that of your own heart and mind – cultivate beautiful inner gardens and cherish thoughts of meaning. Keep not people out, but open them to the world in communion.
It was such a gift to be able to explore these grounds (despite the bleah weather) – such wonder in climbing up narrow winding staircases, and opening into rooms, chambers, and landings. And imagining how people had once lived and made a life within these walls. Amazing.
If you could build and design a castle for yourself, what would it look like? And what special features would you add in? 🏰
