The Chalice well

By Paree
Just spent a few days in Glasenbury,
such a lovely place,

The Chalice Well is among the best known and most loved holy wells in Britain. Many legends are attributed to its chalybeate waters, which flow ceaselessly at a steady rate and temperature that never varies. Not least among these is that they represent the blood of Christ miraculously springing forth from the ground when Joseph of Arimathea buried or washed the cup used at the Last Supper. For others the waters are acknowledged as the essence of life, the gift from Mother Earth to sustain its living forms and so a continuous spring like Chalice Well is a direct expression of an unbounded life force.

I used to visit Glastonbury regularly, but not nowadays, so this is a beautiful reminder of the well, presented with a gentle touch.

hello Pamela, I have also been any times,
its started to look a little tired with all the festival shops and connections,
it seems to have lost something somehow,

Very thoughtful and very artistic work. Excellent composition. Good use of muted grey colours and touch of gold and bright light, signifying vision both outer and inner. Well done
