The Chalice Well at Glastonbury:


One of my favourite places. You must visit it sometime.

A place I've visited several times...worth the entrance fee....for this well alone...but the gardens are sooooo peaceful.

Also..I think it was picked up on.....but I was inferring that springs /wells/streams etc were considered sacred because they cleansed(and not just external effluence as I suggested)...but drinking fresh well water, not just chalybeate, can have a purgative effect thus cleansing internally...and be seen as curative and thus sacred.

Good point. I missed that. Absolutely! I'd forgotten the inter-related sense of 'mundane' life as it would have been at the time, and the Sacred that would have been such a companion, literal all or not ( 'do we have to go and bung some swords in the Water, Mum ?
Of course, and blow your nose, the Druid's coming'...) Druids, Catholicism ( ie McRome), Power structures, always thus. Daft nakes Saints. Put some bloody clothes on and go out and mingle you self absorbed prick.

Om Shanti
