And it's the Burren region, which is limestone.
And it's a bare limestone landscape. And I often think that the forms of the limestone are so abstract and aesthetic, and it is as if they were all laid down by some wild, surrealistic kind of deity.
So soon, being a child and coming out into that, it was waiting like a huge, wild invitation to extend your imagination.
And then it's right on the edge of the ocean, as well, so the conversation — an ancient conversation between the ocean and the stone going on. I know that "landscape" is a really pivotal word for you that you use, not just in describing the natural world, but an important word in talking about how human beings know themselves and move through the world.
I haven't been to precisely the place you're from, but I think the west coast of Scotland, the west coast of Ireland, it is this completely unusual, this wild, raw, bleak beauty.
But talk to me about how you have come to understand landscape as something that forms each of us. Well, I think it makes a huge difference, when you wake in the morning and come out of your house, whether you believe you are walking into dead geographical location, which is used to get to a destination, or whether you are emerging out into a landscape that is just as much, if not more, alive as you, but in a totally different form, and if you go towards it with an open heart and a real, watchful reverence, that you will be absolutely amazed at what it will reveal to you.
And I think that that was one of the recognitions of the Celtic imagination — that landscape wasn't just matter, but that it was actually alive. What amazes me about landscape — landscape recalls you into a mindful mode of stillness, solitude, and silence, where you can truly receive time. Are you just talking, though, about landscape as the natural world around us?
I'll tell you, I remember a summer I spent, a few years after I had first gone to this beautiful, raw, wild edge of Scotland, and I was working with children in a very impoverished inner-city neighborhood.
And I would often wish that I could just transport them for an hour so that what they saw when they opened their eyes and looked around them was that kind of beauty that opens so much possibility.
So I wonder how this Celtic sensibility would also speak to people who don't have that kind of beauty at hand — that kind of beauty. Yeah, I do agree with you that an awful lot of urban planning, particularly in poor areas, has doubly impoverished the poor by the ugliness which surrounds them.
And it's understandable that it's so difficult to reach and sustain gentleness there. And I do think — like a friend of mine just in the last week, who was absolutely exhausted in London, just came away down to southern England and spent the week by the slow ocean, and she's totally recovered. She's come back to herself. But I do think, though, that it's not just a matter of the outer presence of the landscape.
He was gorgeous but so far away. Four hours to be exact.
The Inner Landscape of Beauty
Ironically, I received his number as a bet I wouldn't We have been speaking for the past months, and we finally decided to become something after meeting again for the first time in London. I love him, and being away hurts me so much, and when we read the poem together I cried.
We can't be in a proper relationship because we feel like us being that close would be what kept us apart by being so sad. This touched me, and I feel like it has so many others.
Yes, I know we are far from each other, but I know I will always meet you in my dreams every night, and even if I can close my eyes, I will surely see you because you are always on my mind. I just wish you could see my love for you through my eyes one day.

Yes, you are not here with me, but our souls are forever connected to each other. You made me a woman again after so many sorrows I had faced in life, but you never gave up on me.
You have always stood by my side every moment. We may be far, but soon will see each other for the first time, and I can't wait. It touched my heart that I just wanted to cry, but I loved it, I really did. It speaks exactly to how I feel about my boyfriend. I miss him so much. It's crazy, though, because we've spent nearly every day together for the last 4 years.
He wasn't always my boyfriend, though; we've been dating officially for a little under a year, but I miss our friendship. We were the best of friends since 2nd grade, and in high school we got even closer. We've gone to every social outing, dance, prom, and graduation dinner together. We've never done anything physically romantic other than kiss.
I've told him I love him and he has told me, and it's just amazing. He's on a gap year in the Netherlands and I'm in Alabama. Not only am I away from home, but I'm away from him, and he is my stability in life. He motivates me, loves me, cares for me. It's been hard, but we talk every weekend. My boyfriend lives 45 minutes away from me, and I really miss him. We've only seen each other in person once which was when we met and started dating a little while after that day.
He is my first boyfriend and we've only been dating for little over two months, but I think he's the one. Nothing like it is now with these new kids. I remember a first love like this…met mine, and it was love at first sight.
We dated and it was phone calls and letters My girl was only 45 minutes away, but not driving seemed like I could never be close to her. Love like this and this love will last you your whole life I am in a secret long distance relationship.
Love is difficult, but it is real.
