The land itself.
Herbwise, The second one steps over the property line, the entire feeling of the land changes. Things are brighter. Warmer, Lovelier. The animals tamer, happier, Birds roost where in the dark forest there were no songs, no rustles of feathers.
The grass there is green, and lush, soft to the touch and herbs and flowers grow completely wild, unbound by fence or stake. Lavender, Yarrow, rose and sage, Bees hum and pollinate the lush gardens, making sweet honey in their hives, Hives not built by human hand.
The land is somehow, alive. there is a hum in the air, a song not quite heard by human ears. An eternal breeze blows through the little glade, But its not always felt on ones face, but the trees are in a constant state of movement, the bark creaks and groans, the leaves whisper old and forgotten tales. They protect this sacred land. The trees are alive, and they know who you are.
They sway and move at the will of a Salvator.
Those hurt, body, mind, or soul, are often drawn to this place. The warmth and glow that it emanates can even be seen through the darkened woods beyond its borders.
The babbling stream happily hums as it travels through this little glade. It is a wild place, but somehow, tame at the same time.
Magic is alive here. Its in the land, the water, the air, In one corner of the glade sits a humble cabin, A black fluffy cat often occupies the sunny spot on the large wrap around porch. The porch is littered with pots, seedlings, seeds, and herbs drying on racks in the sun. Vines wrap up around the posts of the cabin, as if the land was claiming that too. Inside is where the Salvators reside. and have for many years. For as long as there has been Herbwise, There have been Salvator's.
The red headed green eyes healers are preeminently connected to the land. And some have said they can control the plant life, bend the trees to their will, And that if a Salvator is threatened, the trees will awaken. Something ancient and inherently good resides in this land, it breathes and is a living thing.
To the north, a giant and ancient oak tree stands tall and proud. This is the Center of Herbwise. The Heart of Herbwise. Surrounding the trunk of the tree are clusters of tall Stone carved in ritualistic runes of protection, health, happiness, life and peace. Often, those who have seen to much. Heard to much. Or are traumatized in some length have stayed at Herbwise for weeks, Months, and even years to rebuild their mind, body, or soul.
It is a healing place like no other. There are spots all over Herbwise for quiet reflection and mediation. Wolfs, big cats, and other mythical creatures will often seek out Herbwise for it represents protection from the dark forces of Lindow. So it is not uncommon to see the odd beast resting tamely there. All are welcome in this place. So long as they seek peace.
