Ireland and Italy are the lands of (most of my) ancestors. While my personal praxis does not typically include work with ancestors, I do feel a deep pull to both of these lands. When people talk of them or when I see pictures I feel a call, deep in my spirit, to go to these places, walk the earth and touch the waters. It's like they call to my memory.
The cliffs of Ireland call my name every time I see them, every time I hear them sung of and every time I see the white of water crashing along her edges. I remember the way the air tastes and the smell of the old ocean along her shores. I've never been there in this lifetime, but I remember the sound as the sea hits the land, and the smell of fire on the wind. Does Erin call to you too?

Can you taste the excitement in the air mingled with the dust? Can you hear the roar of the crowd above the ringing of metal? Can you see the knowledge of death or glory in the eyes of those called or driven to fight? I remember it all and every time I see the Colosseum it comes back. The gods of Rome are familiar to me but they are not what calls, it's the city itself. Do ancient walls speak to you as well.
