On the final day of my visit

I find it.


the most western spot on the island.


I throw myself down upon the grass and worship as God intended.

There are no words

for a long time.



There is the sound of the sea,

And the voices of birds.

A fresh and steady breeze on my face and the smell of heather and gorse.


I breathe

to the rhythm

of water

and open slowly to this wild place.


This is an ancient healing place where humans might give up their heavy form

and dissolve back into


or foam,

or starlight.


This is where our Great Mother’s voice sounds clear and strong over rocks and

waves and the small white sails of our ambitions,

Calling her lost and wandering children Home.


Anne Grete Mazziotta
