DEPARTURE



Just in case the virus claims me...πŸ˜‰

I want to end up in Merlin's Cave
engulfed in it's dank darkness
beneath Tintagel Head,
my ashes scattered there
by a white-robed Druid Priest.
And with me cast some bluebells,
poppies and my favourite pentacle,
all my unfulfilled dreams,
my many mistakes and deep regrets.
And I'd like a barbeque, with vintage wine
for family members and friends -
but only the genuine ones -
outside on the beach
when the sun is overhead.
And music, too. Something offbeat
like me, accompanied
by words that don't rhyme,
so loud through speakers
mounted on the castle walls
that tourists are drawn to investigate.
Build a stone circle there if you can -
it need only be a small one -
to mark my final departure point.
But, above all, be happy.
I want no tears, just celebrations.
Remember only the best of me...

So sorry I'm falling behind with my visits, guys. I am quite unwell at present, but will catch up with you all again as soon as possible. 
Please stay safe...😊😊 xxx

  2. My dearest and sweetest friend... your beautiful words caught me up in your dream, your wishes but I was unprepared for the end.
    Are you having a relapse of your illnesses or is this something new?
    I will be praying even harder for you and for your recovery back to good health.
    I would pray to Merlin if I knew how. Keep the magick in your heart and believe with all your heart that you will recover soon.

    Big Hugs and Lots of love πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—

    1. My dearest Jan...oh how your kind words brought a tear to my eye!😒
      My precious friend, you have truly touched my heart...oh thank you...so, so much!😊😊

      I came down with the virus very suddenly: extreme weakness, severe headache, fever and aching limbs. But, even worse, has been the gastric distress! I haven't been able to sleep since falling ill!!😬

      My dear friend...please take care of yourself...and be safe!! 😊😊
      You are always in my thoughts and prayers.

      All my love and hugs ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

  3. Ygraine,
    May Merlin bring the antidote for the cure that will make you reach us again. Thus, we will celebrate life with a tasty barbecue, with vintage wine.
    Take care of your health out there, in this pandemic moment in which we live!
    Many kisses!!!

    1. Dearest Baili...oh thank you so, so much for your kind and much appreciated wishes!😊😊
      I am thinking of you always in these dangerous and uncertain times, my dear friend...and am hoping and praying for your safety.
      Yes, I agree..we do think alike!
      We both have strong faith...and believe that everything that happens to us is for a reason.
      I am not afraid of dying, because I believe that there is no such thing...not in the way that the Western world perceives it anyway.
      I regard it as simply leaving an outworn physical shell, so we can move on spiritually.

      Thank you again so much, my dear friend!😊😊

      Please do stay safe...

      All my love and hugs ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

  18. I join in praying for your health to recover soon and be able to regain good activity, Ygraine.

    1. Oh thank you so much, Himawan...I really appreciate that! 😊😊
      I hope you are ok too...

      Yes, I am praying for that too...the world is in crisis as we have never seen it before in our lifetimes. πŸ™Really scary 😳

    2. You're welcome, Ygraine πŸ™

      The spirit and mind are always carried happily so that the body's immunity is getting stronger and believe in us that it will recover.

      Something like this I once planted in the mind of my sister who was then affected by a brain tumor. I always encourage her to be able to recover ..., so I keep doing it.
      And thank God Jesus Christ, my sister was completely cured.

      Delete
    3. Oh that is wonderful news...I am so happy your sister recovered.😊😊
      I honestly do believe that a positive state of mind is crucial for recovery. When I was diagnosed with breast cancer, in 2018, I was determined to beat it. I had surgery, but refused radiotherapy and drug therapy. The surgeon wasn't happy about my choice, but...here I am today, clear of cancer...and of the horrible side effects of those invasive treatments!😊
      The power of positive thought is amazing!!

      Stay safe...and have a great day! 😊😊

  19. well i hope you will let me come! It sounds like it would be perfect to me. Love your writing. I've always said to my family - if I go - and heck maybe I'll find a portal like Claire did in OUtlander and leave this timeline. But if I go the normal way - , burn me, throw my ashes to the wind or whatever...and please get together and have a good beer ...only really good craft beer can be served and then laugh at how odd your mother, aunt, friend was. Because I am - ...and totaly relate to what you want. (I would let them have wine there and possibly serve Long island Ice Teas- but for God sakes no Coors or Budweiser...that will hurt my soul.

    1. WOW...think I've found a Soul Sister!!πŸ˜‰
      Wouldn't mind finding that portal either...and maybe we could travel off together, into an amazing adventure! Lol

    2. Oh....wow something just happened i know it sounds strange but i was just overcome with chills. anyway - you would be a heck of a lot of fun to travel with, lol. By the way bring an extra camera but I wear them out with everywhere I go.. (which isn't that far lately)
