Deep channel of spiritual energies

This place I consider to be my true spiritual home, a magical site of immense power. I don't know much about leylines, but there is some form of energy here in abundance - you can almost cut the atmosphere with a knife. It stays with me wherever I go.

[ A hawk on the moors above Malham ]It is a great ambition of mine to one day stage a performance of music theatre up here, inspired by the saxophonist Lol Coxhill who would perform solo concerts to an audience invited to attend at a given time and Ordnance Survey map grid reference. An encounter with a bird of prey spirit-guide showed me that this will indeed happen.
