The Old Gods View

In all the time I’ve been to Stourhead I’ve never been up to the Temple Of Apollo and the first time I do I clamber down a cliff at 10pm. Quite glad I did though.

Ra

DSC_0833.jpg

A finicky god, converting (Hydrogen into Helium) 24 hours a day but constant, in solar terms. It demands no worship and will not hold anything against you. I like Ra, or  Helios or Sol or whatever the hell you want to call it, it’s made me who I am today! ;o)

Manual 365/273 Meet Frank…

dsc_6059-editWhat do you do when you need a pareidolia fix, you need to find a tree, the older and gnarlier the better so the (said to be) 1000-year-old Judge Wyndham Oak in Silton will more than suffice, complete with walking stick.

In my mind he’s trudging off, stage left, grumpy that before 1654 when the pesky puritan, Oliver Cromwell, appointed Sir Hugh Wyndham as a judge and then proceeded to work him so hard that he had to buy an estate just outside Gillingham so that he could “rest” under the bows of the tree previously known as Frank.

Frank really liked that name, hence the 350 year huff!

He’s expected to be stood in the corner of the field, sulking in 2476…. I’m with you all the way Frank! (maybe)

Peace Peeps! x
