    You did say Southerners were welcome

    Post  Emma James on Thu Sep 13, 2012 10:02 pm

    Hi, I'm Emma James.

    Brought up by an architect father and teacher mother, us kids (6 of us!) spent our childhoods trailing round ancient sites, although I was dragged around schools, prisons and various other County Council builds when Dad had site meetings. I particularly loved the spray gun plastering. Still haven't managed to get my hands on one Wink

    I work as a massage therapist, so work with healing energies and am particularly susceptible to ley lines I discovered, after passing out during a performance at The Globe in London where sporty types are apparently prone to doing just that. My guess is that because I'm high energy already, when I'm at the point where ley lines intersect I get an energy overdose. Certainly when I was on a Mother Earth retreat in Harpenden once and one of the group infront was dowsing, I sensed the line as I walked over it. It made me feel as sick as....

    The most recent foray I made to a site of interest was on my 50th this Spring which really rounded the day off beautifully.

    I went to the Rollright Stones and it was absolutely magical; http://www.rollrightstones.co.uk/index.php/stones/detail/the-kings-men/

    I network actively and run a few forums myself on Ecademy and help to moderate a couple on Facebook.

    Very sporty, my other main hobby is naturism where I can combine my love of being active and outdoors with being naturally nude. There's nothing better than feeling the sand between your toes, the sun on your face and the wind on your body Smile

    Hello Emma, welcome to TNA. Your life story sounds brilliant. I must admit I have never done the naked bit "outdoors" as I'm rather shy. Please enjoy browsing on here. sunny

    Thanks very much Sunbright57.

    I'm looking forward to having a good dig around the site. I was at a boules tournament all weekend which took me offline largely but now I've found the NAF, I'll enjoy interacting on here and learning from you. Smile

    thanks very much.

    I've still not had time to dig Sad It's a bit mad at the moment with exams pending on the 6th October but after that i can sit on my laurels a bit.

    I did manage to check your website out though - it's excellent. You're very prolific Smile

    I've taken the liberty of Tweeting it out from my main Twitter account @MassageBucks and popped it on my Facebook wall which has various friends I know will find it of interest, thanks very much.

    I can't like any of the entries, well I could but it would be from our @NatFreeUK wordpress account and since it's a Club account, that's not really appropriate, although we Naturists do like a good ramble, like most things, we do it in the buff, lol.

    The boules was fab thanks. here's something I penned about boules; http://www.ecademy.com/node.php?id=165222

    Back again soon. I'm on a backlog assault today which is no-where near as much fun as pootling about online!

    Thank you Emma for looking at my website and glad you like it. I you want I can make you one of my followers. Let me know. It means you would get up-dates about new sites. As you will probably know we have just lost Lowergate (John Dixon) one of our main contributors on TNA. He was my soulmate, so I am still feeling very upset about his passing. You will find us all very friendly on TNA. We do sometimes have arguments and dont always see eye to eye, but that's life isn't it, and you tend to get that on all websites with forums. If you have any photos of ancient sites, or a bit more recent, please don't be afraid to share them on here. We like to see photos. sunny

    I know that site very very well, and if in 7 long strides Long Compton You desire to see....let Me know and I will enable You to SEE what that is all about.
    My name gives a clue as to where I live.
    There's 89 so called leylines meet at two points within the stone so called circle.
    34 at one point..55 at the one most people stand on.
    What??? do You consider is the "Energy" anyone can heal with is?
    We are self repairing vehicles ...if We have sufficient...What????

    Life is a bit full on at the moment but it should ease off after my exams on Saturday - until the next round of exams!

    I'm so sorry to hear about John's passing. It's hard when a loved one departs.

    I know how forums work, don't worry and I'm pretty thick skinned, although I've encountered nothing but friendliness so far Smile

    I'll be back on again as soon as I can (expecting another client now) and will post up some pics hopefully too. And yes, I'd love to be on your mailing list. I'll follow through on that as well.

    Hi Cropredy

    I'll be back to answer this when I can - expecting a Client and he's late but this will require some consideration
    given the challenge.

    Back again. I'm not very good at riddles and I'm under the kosh at the moment so don't plan to deliberate for long, plus I see no need for justifications. I have my belief system, you have yours evidently.

    Enjoy your evening

    all the best

    Emma

    Thanks very much Sunbright57. Sorry I've been dormant. Tough Winter in common with many but I'm back up and at 'em now.

    I've not been to any sites of interest recently but now the weather has improved, once I start venturing further afield, with my trusty camera, I will post up some pictures accordingly.

    I hope things have been good your end in the intervening period?
