force of nature
Yet, over time, what happens in a building seeps through every stone, and soaks it in emotion. For emotion to do this, it must be strong. Day to day experience will not create enough energy, even over a long time period.
These will all leave their mark
You can feel this at some stone circles. Whatever these were for, whatever happened on these sites, the atmosphere around them often feels charged by the emotions of generations. Arbor Low in Derbyshire is one such site. I visited this when snow was on the ground, and the air was clear. The view from the site is commanding, and, as I walked away, a single horse wandered into the stone circle and stood, as if guarding. The sense of the past, and all the emotions that had gone before amplified by the statue figure. My biggest photographic failure, I didn’t get the shot.
