What an amazing experience it must be to celebrate Yule and the Winter Solstice at Stonehenge. Wish I were there.

Now that I've gotten my a$$ on a plane finally, maybe I can plan to go to the UK in a few years.

I almost pointed out (when you were posting about Tori Amos and Kate Bush) that I live a very short way from Wuthering Heights, and am about one hours drive from Pendle.

Lucky! I've had many pen-pals in the UK throughout the years and have always always wanted to go. Especially because I've considered myself somewhat of an anglophile (loving British TV, movies, etc.). I'll see if I can find your link :)
