Tara Belfast Update 23

 
ages since the last one - sorry
again - NOT because nothing has been happening - but being over whelmed by volumes of Info
plus not knowing if there was any point until after we didnt actually go into a Timewarp yesterday
also known as Big Bang Day
 
phew ; )
 ..... until Next Time .....
 
 
I wonder if we are the best species to be let near the control room of the planet
its the descended from monkeys thing  - it is a worry
its okay this time
 but It looks as if we will keep on fiddling with the works until we DO break something
 
still - maybe there is someone or something out there keeping an eye on things to stop us going too far
 
anyway -
  - the evening that Janet O' Hagan is putting together at the Black Box in Belfast on October 2nd is gaining momentum and looking to be quite a night  !
it isnt specifically about Tara - but about Sacred Spaces generally - specifically in the North
her website is at
http://www.sacredspacesni.com/index.htm
and there are details and how to contact her there
    There is something about connecting places together and exploring the connections that makes individual places light up somehow
and the connections can be across the border - of course - but across the water as well and to other places on the Earth - this is a very exciting project I think - and hopefully the evening at the Black Box will be - well , good in itself - but also just a start of other things -

888 In The Valley

 " Meanwhile other Protectors were staging a Tree Protest near the Collierstown site highlighting the fact that roughly 62 bodies were removed from their sacred burial grounds to make way for the construction of the M3 Motorway. Collierstown graveyard dates from prehistoric times with burials continuing into the early medieval era.

The Tree Protest was given huge support from passing motorists. Locals also joined in coming out of their homes to give encouragement and there were plenty of volunteers to take stints to maintain a presence. " Carmel
