abbey meditations

In 1996, my travels led me to Great Britain. One stop was the Wye Valley and Tintern Abbey. I was mesmerized by the stones, the arches, the trees all around and the history of the Cistercian monks that once lived there.

During this time in the UK – Scotland actually –I was introduced to William Wordsworth and his poem below – later — my own meditation on Tintern Abbey
