After waiting 6 months since my dentist didn’t remove my tooth properly I finally had the appointment today to finish the work.  The anesthetic is wearing off as I type and the throb, throb, throb of the surgery is beginning to hit home.

I’m pleased it’s over and I now want to heal.  I also never want to experience losing a tooth again.

I wanted to blog tonight but wasn’t sure I’d be much in the mood.  I then remembered I never shared my photos of when we visited Bath last October.  So I’m going with that Goddess inspired thought!

Bath is famous for… wait for it…. its Roman baths.  This is Britain’s only natural hot spring and has been a sacred site for several thousands of years; first for the Celts then by the Romans.

Bath

This is how it would have looked in Roman times when it was called Aquae Sulis:

There is a temple at the site.  It’s dedicated to the goddess Sulis Minerva but it also had a strong link to Luna:

Luna

This is a tablet found at the baths in 1882.  It shows Minerva with a gorgon mask across her stomach.

This is Minerva again:

The Romans took their goddess, and their cursing seriously:

  1. Oh, Lyn…again I am so sorry about your whole dentist experience! I love how you bring all the spirituality of England to those who can't access it there. I'm sure in another time you would have gone there if your teeth were giving you problems, and a wise woman would have helped you better than your dentist…Blessings of health to you, Lyn!

  2. Know how you feel Lyn. I too have had a tooth semi-removed by some awful dentist, who left a lot of the tooth and root in once he broke it-by tugging, pacifying me with, "it'll work its way out", which infact it almost did and then served me as a back tooth once the sharp edges rounded off. I havent been to the dentist since, I confess. The pictures of the Bath are superb, I simply LOVE the Roman era…living where I do we have quite a bit, although nothing as magnificent as the Bath. Hope all gum tenderness is going now, blessings x
