Casts her cold dead spell tightly
Unwoven by Spring
A cairn field high above Loch Garry, marking the passage of the thousands who visit the Scottish Highlands each year, travelling through the Cairngorms on this high pass. Cairn etiquette demands that you should always add to a cairn as you pass by, and if you add the highest stone you can claim the luck of the cairn. This ensures its survival, despite winters best attempts to sweep the earth clean each year. Some stone cairns in Britains hills are very ancient indeed, marking the paths and passes used by our ancestors for thousands of years. Routes for moving cattle and the dead. Places where the veil between life and death feels thin, and where human feet have touched the skin of the earth, many many times over. Walk softly in these places.
