Secret Places

Daily Image - 16 November 2011 - Secret Waters

As children we all cherished and carefully concealed secret places where we could go to be alone or act out important fantasies. How many of us are fortunate enough to retain these places, or even find new ones as we go through life? Never prepared to fully grow up, I have carefully catalogued many such places, and this is one of them. This stream, close to a village not too far from my home, cascades over countless little falls as it makes its way down from the surrounding high ground, deep into a river valley, where it joins one of our major rivers, and thus out to the sea. It is seldom visited and cannot be seen from any roadway. In all the times I have visited I have never met another, although there’s clear evidence that I am not the only visitor. Nonetheless, when I am there… it is mine!
