Eilao and The River Navia. #TheOtherSpain


Welcome to Paradise! Green Silence and the scent of nature greet you, taking you back to a time when myths and legends ruled and hidden treasures could be found under every tree, in caves and by the banks of the river, named after a Roman goddess of thermal waters.   <a href="https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/treasure/">Treasure</a>

That ancient path

In seeking it, it is lost.

Thus the importance of letting it go.
Thus the importance of finding
That which was always here.

Peace and blessings

ETIMOLOGY OF ASTURIES. THE MEANING OF OUR NAME.


My translation of this interesting piece.

lligaceltadasturies

There were diverse interpretative hypothesis with regards to the name of our nation, Asturias. It is logical for there to be a clear interest in a name whose remote origins are obscured by the exiguity of dependable  and objective data. Many believe in a pre-Indo European origin, Etruscan according to Schulze and others (Shulten 426, p. 87), based on the Mediterranean expansion of toponyms and anthroponyms  that present a  linguistic resemblance with Asturias; as well as the possibility of confirming a certain familiarity with some Pyrenaic or Basque words.

From this explanation we can derive that the name Asturias refers to a land with many mountain springs (cf 218; 102 p 25; …

"I feel in every girl, there is a spirit, a wild pixie, that if let go, would run and dance in grassy fields until the end of the world. And then that girl grows up, that pixie hides, but it is always there...peeking out behind old eyes and reading glasses, laughing, waiting to one day dance again." ~Atticus~
