Pyramid Point :: The Landscape of My Imagination


Pyramid Point holds a particularly special place in my imagination.  It reminds me of the way John O’Donohue speaks about the power of landscape:

“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, 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 — is that landscape recalls you into a mindful mode of stillness, solitude, and silence where you can truly receive time.”
