Pathwords : Tenalach

pathwords -tenalach 001

Tenalach (Irish): “The relationship one has with the land, air, and water. A deep connection that allows one to literally hear the Earth sing.” I’ve recently adopted this word, and bring it to mind when I go for walks in the woods or down by the beach. And now I can hear the Earth sing!

I’ve often wondered what my life would have been like if I had been brought up owning this word in my everyday language. I would have been a lot more mindful of how the earth connects with us as we pass by her.

    Oh! I want to be in this scene you have created! The colors you have chosen and the swoops of your brush bring to my mind the word whisper. I can hear this painting whisper. Don’t know how to describe it other than that.
