Scarred but still standing 1

On the Spinney, a short walk from my house, there is a small area of woodland. Whenever I walk Bobby there I take time to stop and look at this tree with its scars. I don’t know what caused it, other than some sort of fire. I see something beautiful in the darkness and smooth […]

Even the most beautiful die sometime 3

My friend, Marigold, from the Sustainably Creative forum, sent me a lovely poem in response to the last podcast. It’s theme, about the changing of the seasons, reminded me of Cherry Blossom.

I’ve always been interested in the different people who use it and the juxtaposition of town and country. I feel very […]

Sometimes there is synchronicity, and then, there is synchronicity….I find Sally’s blog at www.sallylever.co.uk often chimes with things I’m thinking about. I decided to contact her and ask if she wanted to do reciprocal guest posts – I’m keen to build a sense of community here and in the rest of my life. She suggested interviewing each […]

Being, knowing, doing (or not doing) and living in the liminal space – sustainable change project month 10

Ah, I’m having one of those obstructive technology hours. There’s no photo on this post because it won’t upload and since a problem with upgrading, there seem to be a few glitches around.
