A stirring of my blood, a whisper almost heard, a glimmer in radiant light.
In Buddhism, Devas are described as non human, invisible to the eye, except for humans with extra sensory perception. Hindus portray them as benevolent supernatural beings. 11th century texts mention them. The New Age Movement calls them the spirutual forces behind nature. All I know is, in certain places, I feel as if something else is there. I think they are watching and waiting until we set aside our primitive ways. In other words, waiting for the human race to grow up.
Two places I reliably feel their presence:

I'm not the only one to be fascinated by the light along this stretch of coast. Artists rave about it.
Do you have places which make you strain to see and hear something just out of reach? Do your friends think you a little strange?
