Warm, glowing sunsets over rustic farmland is something I (and the oldest poppet) will probably never tire of. There are lovely public footpaths that criss-cross farms close to where we live, such a privilege to be able to discover these.

 

A new habit

Having relocated internationally at the beginning of 2020, the joys and trials of adjusting to life in a new country have suddenly been one-upped by Covid. Days are filled with planning, homeschool and figuring out what finishing off work looks like from home.

As part of self-care {and a belated idea for Lent}, I have decided to pick up my camera again and to choose to see the beauty in what is under my feet. I hope you enjoy the visual journey with me. I am not promising daily posts or exceptional writing, but perhaps a moment of stillness as you enjoy an image, in the midst of the busy days.

Location: Bradgate Park.

Please note: This was taken a few weeks ago on our first visit there. Right now, the park is closed to visitors to encourage social distancing. Once open again, it will surely be a favourite family haunt.

Aperture of the heart { ii }

 

the last verses from the beautiful poem CARTOGRAPHY, by Australian performance poet Joel McKerrow. Do go and read the complete poem online. It is beautiful.

” Come sail with me.

Be curious with me.

Wonder with me.

See artistry where others only see ugly.

Pick up the parchment.

The crumpled paper thrown into the waste bin.

See it for what is.

Find your way home.

Come sail with me ”
