What do you See? Roundup Oct16/2018

Thank you to everyone for your inspiring share to this week’s challenge.  Thank you, Jordan, for lending us your intriguing photo for the challenge.  Jordan provides us with information for this photo:

…The image was taken while I was visiting Glastonbury, England. It is of the Chalice Well that is fed by a spring that has been flowing for two thousand years.

The Chalice Well is steeped in history and it is said that Joseph of Arimathea left the Chalice that held the blood of Jesus buried within the well causing the water to have a red tinge. Steeped in mythology it is also said that King Arthur was buried in nearby at the Abbey.

Although the red hue is from the iron and minerals that come from deep within the earth, the Christian symbolism continues to live on.

Glastonbury, England has been a spiritual destination for pilgrims for thousands of years. It is a place that I love to visit when I go on my annual trips to England.

The Vesica Piscis is an ancient sacred symbol of two interlocking circles where the circumference of one circle goes through the center of another identical circle. Its geometry symbolizes a union, of heaven and earth or spirit and matter and appears throughout the gardens.
