Water therapy

A visit to Kinnego Marina on the south side of Lough Neagh. The natural world always has the effect of making you feel good, maybe even more so when you’re around a large body of water.

    Kinnego is a great place. I took a day trip there during the summer by accident, I was looking for Oxford Island. Spent a bit of time in both places and the family had a great day. It’s strange how the water in places like this make us feel so alive. You would almost think we were getting some sort of power or energy from it.

    I have read literature about the mystical properties of water. Not sure what to believe myself. But I guess the important thing is that the emotional and therapeutic effects of nature are what they are, regardless of what we say about the underlying cause.

  3. Nice one. Interesting thoughts.
    I’ve lived right on the sea for short periods – once 3 months, once 4 – and never got sick of it. Maybe it was too short for that! I can see it from my desk now, though I rarely get down there. Funny though, lakes and rivers don’t do it for me – gotta be the ocean. Guess I grew up within five miles of it and that makes a difference.

    Hey Darryl,

    I was watching this video along with your ones about consciousness. Monaghan has many beautiful lakes too! I was just in Ireland and thought I would like to spend all my time by a lake, but then, I know that you can take it for granted eventually.

    Hi, Ciara. Thanks for watching this oldie. Beauty can be found in a great many places. The trick is to stop and notice it. So much of our lives are spent running on automatic.

    That said, I do feel privileged to live in Northern Ireland. Earlier this week, a friend and I trekked to the top of one of the largest peaks in the Mourne Mountains. I should post some photos, but they really don’t do justice to the feeling of being there and taking in the view.

    I think all these videos are very interesting. Religion is such a confusing topic and I listen to all points of view so I never have a real opinion. It’s like the Irish weather, blah blah, if you need some clear understanding of my own mind on what I think of this vast topic with so many opinions and so much conviction. You had one about when your relatives die and go to hell. I used to wonder about that problematic question when someone died and everyone offers their comfort without touching on that especially if the person did unchristian stuff. I wanted to say something to get down to the brass tacks. I think I was a little bit mad, so I couldn’t be candid and remain noncomittal, and eventually one comes to the conclusion that nobody is really surprised at what you are saying. And yeah, I miss all of those lakes. They were so beautiful, but I had to walk past so many aggressive dogs to get to them and someone’s bull was always on the road. So I guess they were all the more meaningful since I had to work harder to get to them?
