The Stone Age seems long ago. But in Scotland's Orkney Islands, the sun-warmed stones of prehistoric houses, tombs and stone henges can connect you to the people of the past. Read how ancient people left evidence of their spiritual connection to the earth, in "The Old Stones of Orkney."

Hi Cara,

I love how your writing takes me on an adventure... makes me want to visit the the Orkney Islands in real life. What a magical place. Thanks for sharing!

Cheers, Jade

Thanks Jade. I like learning about other cultures, both past and present. I find there's continuity we all share in our desires for community, connection and meaning. Yet this reveals itself in so many different ways.

Take care, Cara
