Love

Heart made of beads and sea pottery

Love is not a limited commodity, it is a limitless and boundless outpouring. It cannot and will not cease to flow, it doesn’t require anything to be contained, held or captured in, it defies logic and reasoning and is no respecter of the recipients willingness or worthiness to receive it.

Far Away?

Skylark in flight Bob Brewer

Are you far away from someone you love? Sometimes we find ourselves physically a long distance from those in our heart, and sometimes it is a different form of distance that feels like separation…time, misunderstanding, death or perhaps something unique to our circumstances and hard to explain. I have found that going out and being […]

Cause for Pause

Pied wagtail

It was July 2019, a warm, sunny day, and I was in North Devon, wandering through a busy shopping street, when a most beautiful pied wagtail flew down onto the pavement. I have a soft spot for wagtails and this one was truly lovely – his black and white markings so delicately drawn and his […]

Feet in the Dew

Bluebell with dew drops

Beautiful May… My my, it’s May again! If it were a competition for loveliness this month would surely win on several counts, not least because of the promise of summer in all those glorious petals. I hope that you feel it in yourself too, that uplifting feeling of life renewed and the promise of good […]

View from the bottom of the Garden

The High Road What a wonderful view we have from the bottom of our garden. Looking out over the South Rhins of Galloway to Luce Bay and the Machars. There’s a wonderful patchwork quilt of fields of varying shades and textures all seperated by dry stone dykes and gorse hedges. The low road goes down […]
