Water covers seventy percent of the surface of our planet earth and is essential to sustain life in all aspects of creation. Scientists believe that all living forms emerged originally from the sea and we shall study some fascinating creation myths on this theme. Using paintings, music and poetry we shall explore the many forms of water from the great oceans, rivers and streams, which were believed to be the dwellings of pagan gods, to sacred wells and the ritual sacrifices by the water-worshiping Celts. A display of paintings, books and photos may serve as a stimulus to our three writing sessions. All levels welcome, both beginners and experienced writers alike. Support and guidance will be provided in a relaxed and encouraging atmosphere.

It is rare to find a venue - and an audience - so thoroughly dedicated to the enjoyment culture and cultivation of the mind as Dillington House and its visitors. As someone who hasn't lived in Britain for the past two decades, Dillington was also a delightful reminder of the beauties of English landscape and rural architecture. It was a pleasure to speak there and I envy those who can visit frequently.
