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.
While there, I was introduced to William Wordsworth – later — interpretation of Tintern Abbey.
