Llandudno Bay: the Great Orme.
Tee minus Two-Four hours and counting…
‘The greatest religious and moral truth to which man must grow is that we cannot be saved individually. My salvation presupposes the salvation of others also, the salvation of my neighbour, it presupposes universal salvation, the salvation of the whole world, the transfiguration of the world. The very idea of salvation arises from the oppressed condition of man; and it is associated with a forensic conception of Christianity. This ought to be replaced by the idea of creative transformation and enlightenment, by the idea of perfecting all life. “Behold, I make all things new.” It is not only God that makes all things new, it is man too.’
– Nicolas Berdyaev
“The prefix ‘Llan’ in a Welsh place name means sacred.”
“So what was sacred about Llandudno?”
“St Tudno dwelt here.”
“And before that?”
“Before that it was the two Ormes, although they wouldn’t have been known as Ormes then. The Vikings named them from the sea. One finds ‘Great’ and ‘Little’ in place names too.”
“If Summer is ‘Big Sun’ and Winter is ‘Small Sun’ then, Summer is also ‘Small Earth’ and Winter is ‘Big Earth’.
“Why are we only using one quotation?”
“Because only one was chosen.”
