Ancient legends speak of the River Lethe, crossed by departing souls.  The waters of the Lethe wash away memory, allowing for spiritual rebirth, reincarnation, a return to the world in new form.

  1. Thank you Michael for this beautiful gallery of photos. Being a tree lover I am really relishing these
    photos.
    You give the whole post such peace with the introduction about Lethe and the photo of the river.

      1. May be that there are not so many written traditions from these times like the Edda or Tacitus’ Germania. But for the socalled Germanic tribes it is very well researched that their temples were just places in forests and also the magical moors in the era 2,000 years ago. There to be found holy groves and trees no longer existing and destroyed.

  2. The last two photos are very striking. I enjoyed how you wove fiction in between the images. A poetic journey into an ancient legend flowing through time. The first two photos add to the sense of bridging layers of a soul’s existence. Wonderful post, Michael. ❤
