In Sheepstor Churchyard, Dartmoor – there is a particular cut headstone that draws me. Every now and then – when I’m in the area (which is often) I like to pay my respects to ‘Mary Light’. I don’t know who she was – but her name speaketh to me. It is such an ethereal name that reaches out through centuries that have passed since her interment in 1766. Hither and thither – I followed Mary’s trail on Sunday afternoon – 17th July 2016.
So what’s in a name? To me, an ethereal afternoon spent – following a meandering trail not found in any walker’s guidebook; Mary leadeth and I simply followeth.
