  • I walked along the coastline where the River Ness, the River Findhorn and the River Spey,flow into the Moray Firth; and made an offering, to the sea gods, of pebbles formed when molten rock from magma and lava cooled down and hardened. Such beautiful quarzite, granite, slate pumice, marble stones lay in hundreds and thousands at my feet. Miraculous.
