‘Sharing Life’s Journey’

I’ve just had a few days away – spending them with a friend I had not seen for about 23 years – and it’s been such a special time. Apart from the many trips out – long walks – conversations on numerous topics- all interspersed with much laughter – the main value for me –…

‘An Excellent Service’

I was recently planning a trip- on a long train journey to visit a friend – the journey entailed changing trains at one of the biggest train stations in the UK – so I was quite nervous about that prospect – and also the fact that it’s simply impossible for me to carry and lift…

‘Take A Moment’

One day – while visiting my friend in Scotland – we found this large stone – at the top of a hill – and the words written on it resonated with me Take a moment to behold As still skies or storms unfold In sun – rain – sleet or snow Warm your soul before…

‘Live Honestly’

I’ve been thinking a lot recently – about just what is means to ‘live honestly’ – to have the courage to ‘show up – and let myself be seen’. So much of the time I ‘put on a front’ – smile through my pain – pretend all is ok – when it truly isn’t. There…

‘Embracing The Elements’

The forecast had been correct – so I wasn’t really surprised when a dull and wet outlook was there to greet me – the other morning, It was strange though – that my first thought was that I would go out for a walk – in the rain. Usually  I would rule out a walk…

‘The Gift Of Friends’

This past week I had the wonderful opportunity to meet up with old friends – not seen for a very long time – and it was so good. It seemed we had only been apart for a short time – that special bond held strong – those times spent together – moments shared – laughter…

‘Transformation’

Over the wintertime the fence at the front of our house has gradually continued to decay. When we first moved here – 17 months ago – we repaired the broken fence as much as we could – and gave it a coat of paint – however – we knew then – that this would only…

‘The Way I See It’

As many of you know – I love to walk – however – these days my walks are rather more limited – and so I chose the best – and easiest – way for me to enjoy them. One of my walks is simply on the roadside – from our village to the next one…
