As far as I am aware, there aren’t any earth mysteries in this picture. But, when we on our balloon flight I asked the pilot if he took up scientists or researchers. He response was along the lines of; if anyone wanted to go up, he’d be happy to take them. No reason for him to tell me who previous customers were. But, to my way of thinking, there would be not many better ways of seeing things cheaply from the air.
Tonights post is about Earth Mysteries, because that is one of the things that I am fascinated by. Ley Lines. Not that they are lanes of secret mysterious energies, but if people from those times could build something like Stonehenge, why wouldn’t they have the nouse to build things in alignments, straight lines?
Stone circles, standing stones, Tumuli, Silbury Hill, the long man of Wilmington, who made them and why, and what do they represent or symbolise? From my perspective I have been curious about this. I have a copy of The Old Straight Track by Alfred Watkins. Now Alfred (I hope he wouldn’t have minded the informality) realised about the alignments and started plotting them.
Now, I like maps, I always have. What I am, like books, is averse to drawing or writing on them. But I am going to have to get over that. I also need somewhere I can hang a good sized map with a solid backing that I can use to plot things on.
