From a post by Searles on Thu Jun 24 20:24:23 1999 on the An Daire Draiochta Message Board:
If the stones of sacred places are defiled, then spiritually our very bones and our basis in living is also sullied. To attack or desecrate such places is to abuse and defile our grandparents, our loved ones and our deities. Such wanton attacks on sacred stones are destructive of respect and self destructive of life. They should be considered to be an affront to everyone who still seeks the ways of spirit and tradition.

The boys and I want to tell everyone about Wendy. She was given to us by Milofaille and her family. Wendy is a three toed box turtle and she is awesome. I always thought that as far as pets go, turtles were probably not the most interesting. BOY was I wrong. She has such an incredible personality and definate likes and dislikes. She loves to play in the water, and loves to be sprayed with the spray bottle, as long as its not too close. She LOVES strawberries and isn't real fond of apples, though if she has to she'll eat them. She strongly dislikes lettuce and won't eat it at all. Wendy sits on her human brothers chests and gives all of us kisses. She loves to burrow under the beanbag chairs, so we always look before we sit. She enjoys spending the evenings outside in the grass with us. She has brought the joy of having an animal baby back into our lives, this time without the fear that we will have to give her up.

To mediate - to learn and teach of truth and the mechanisms of nature - to balance reality for the benefit of the people and the land with their body, mind and spirit is part of the path of Druids.
