We were down in West Cornwall, the oldest part of the county called Penwith. Just outside the town of Madron there is an ancient holy well which probably dates back to prehistoric times. Just down the path is a Celtic Christian chapel dating to the 7th century c.e. I found simeone had placed a wreath on the remains of an altar and a memorial to a deceased father on a corner by the holy well.
People come to the holy well to leave prayers and requests for healing. They tie silk ribbons and little objects on the trees. Some leave notes, which fade in the rain. All ar asking for something.
A woman happened by with her dog and asked if I was a healer. I told her I was sorry no healing, only photography.
