Over the weekend our exploring took us to a sailing club on the North West coast where the River Alt greets the Irish Sea. We sat on a bench watching nature, listening to the ‘pip’ of the Sandpipers and the cries of the gulls as the wind blew in fresh peace. Memories of my childhood holidays in Blakeney, Norfolk floated up and Georgie talked about his special lifelong friend who sails from this club. Loving memories shared with a deep gratitude for this time we have together in the here and now.

Balance felt as I gift myself time to sit and create with space for ideas to flow.

A friend and I nattering on the phone. Agreeing that it is much nicer than a text, as we can ‘hear’ each other, along with our shared laughter.

Starting a Facebook group to share my creativity and each message coming in is flowing with hearts, kisses and support. Discovering some little heart tags, covered with tiny rosebuds, that I can use to send my creations out into the world.

Sitting here sharing my written thoughts with a gifted mini minature rose beside me, in a dragonfly mug Georgie and I found. Memories for him as he fished on a beautiful Irish river bank and watched nature’s wondorous display. Memories for us as we sat in stillness and watched the dragonflies over the water lilies in Ness Gardens. The electric blue dragonflies fly in pairs.

Each uplifting moment is created from the infinite source of love.

    Such a gift is reminiscence! And you used to holiday in Blakeney in your childohood – no wonder you feel such an affinity for those open beaches and marshes with their giant skies. Peace emanates from your writing, and it instils peace in me as I read. Hugs, Jane; lovel stuff!

    Right now, sitting so far from the sea, near Phoenix, AZ getting ready for the flight home. I love the Desert, but miss the salt air too… I think I just love this earth! Often feel caught in between the embrace of nature, and the pull of human “progress”. Thanks for reminding us of the serenity found in the arms of nature! All the best ❤️ Peter

    I think texting is so impersonal and agree telephone conversations are next best to face to face contact.

    Ditto to your other commentators!
    Love flows like the tide and water even if one cannot bottle it – only share it in posts like this one.

    Simple and meaningful pleasures. Easily take. For granted, till they’re gone…
