Synchronicity, balance and blessings in simplicity….

my village

Through my own choices my balance was rocked lately and I made a decision to step back and take stock. Time to reflect and just ‘be’ is a blessing.

There is a profound peace in this little cottage where I live and the walls that are over 200 years old protect and enfold me. I pottered yesterday and so many blessings floated up…..

I live on a hilltop looking out over fields and hills and the birds happily sing their freedom up here.

The traffic is a rural mixture of horses, tractors, battered land rovers and a very grumpy postman.

I unpegged my washing from the line yesterday and the setting sun caught the church tower at the side of our gardens.

Neighbours knock on my door all smiles and friendly offers.

There is a Pilates class in the village hall just over the brow of the hill on Monday evenings.

We are all going for a Spring walk on the May bank holiday ending with a picnic in a local wood. Homemade cake has been mentioned.

There is a real possibility of the closed pub building being turned into a village shop.

I have loving friendship links in all the surrounding villages. Friends that I have made with all the different things I have done in various places around the world and here we are in close proximity. Are we having fun catching up with each other? You betcha!

One of my clients looked across my sitting room on a recent visit and quizzed me about the things I make. I am now creating to add to the stock in her vintage gift shop.

There is synchronicity at work here with a balance that I have longed for.

I am grateful and content.

          1. Good to connect with you too. Food… planting gardens, enjoy fishing. All relaxing. Been laughing all my life. Don’t know about the apple, but laughter a day keeps the doctor away. 😀


          2. Laughter is right up there with food! I have inherited a garden with a veggie and herb patch here…the previous tenant carved wood and has kindly left all his carved sticks that label the herbs and vegetables..I love that. I still have to work out what some of them are…but they are green and growing so I take that as a plus. 🙂


  1. I love the feel of this writing, Jane……the ebb and flow……….a curtsey, a ripple, an expected falls into a cooling pool………. The dance, the drink that is living life to the fullest, swirling silent within the soul. Beautiful hardly seems to cover it. ~ Love, Bobbie


    1. Bobbie, your words are so encouraging. Thank you. I am finding my voice and courage again as I tackle a book, so your lovely comment just hits the spot. Much love to you, my lovely. Xx


  2. Looks like a lovely location. We have recently moved to a retirement resort. It’s part of future planning when I may not be able to drive. A village with everything you need and all services we need to access is 4 minutes walk away.We couldn’t be happier with our choice. Georgine has her hobby room and I have my room to write my stories and poems.


    1. Hello Ian and your move sounds great…special rooms for both of you. The birds here are in full song today. How many of you are there in the resort? 🙂 x


      1. There are about 450 in our side called Hibiscus, and 400 adjourning in another called Bellflower. The services we have available just 4 minutes walk from our door are unbelievable and if you don,t want to walk most deliver to your door. We are totally spoiled here.


        1. No more than you both deserve Ian after all your adventures and the life that you have ploughed back into helping others. 🙂


  3. Ahh Jane lovely to hear you are well. When I look at your picture I see a place that on entering you would have a deep sigh and instantly become ‘at home’ x


    1. Hey Ducky, good to hear from you and thank you for your kind thoughts and words. How about a catch-up…how are you diddling? 🙂


    1. Yes, and there is magic in the fit…synchronicity. Peter, good luck with your adventure…is it taking you far from New England? Xx


  4. Hi there Jane… seems you ride the wave of a positive flow here… I hope you’ll manage to continue on this new wave of energy. You know there’s always a door for you to knock on should you feel the need to..
    Your Silver Friend…


      1. No need for you to thank me Jane after all you’ve done for me…
        It fills me with joy to see you are doing so well.
        I wil try to stay a bit updated on this beautiful blog.
        Take care and enjoy the wonderful things that surround you..
        😉 xx
