Memory is the treasury and guardian of all things

I often look at some of my older pictures for comfort. They bring back feelings of peace and contentment in times of stress. It helps in the same way a favourite song or TV program does.This was taken on a very warm May afternoon in 2010 on a walk in the Peak District not far from Bakewell. Its a lovely old leafy lane with virtually no traffic in the dappled shade of the trees. As usual I was alone but this time I did not mind or feel awkward.  Behind me up a hill is a stone circle over 4000 years old and many ancient burial mounds and monuments litter the whole area. Thousands of years of human history and yet it still looks wild and empty. To me it feels like home.
