Celtic wisdom suggests Earth, Home, Security and Fertility are associated with this direction on the compass. Each different aspect of spirituality works with slightly different understandings but the sense here is strong for me – this view is where I grew up; with a freedom not considered today.
Constable’s clouds have always entranced me and I find myself singularly attracted to those vistas at the moment. Especially here where our skies don’t have the clarity and structure of down South. When I think of the skies here, it’s always with the “messy” adjective. A little bit wild, and changeable, and unpredictable. Just how I like them.
