Leaving the social media arena…..

The medieval tower at the mouth of the Tagus River, Lisbon

I was writing a card to treasured friend today, as it’s her birthday in a few days time. We met many, many moons ago (before my daughter was born) when she and I were neighbours and our loving friendship has flowed through all these years.

Recently, Georgie and I had a magic time in Lisbon and it has been a struggle to recapture the peace we discovered since we returned to our daily rounds.

I have also been watching a manipulation grow through social media and it feels unbalanced, if not downright cruel and unjust at times.

So, with a strong desire to have time to honour the connections I love and cherish, I have deleted my Facebook, Twitter and PInterest accounts.

I love the Global Village we have in our blogging world and this has gifted loving bonds and supportive connections and long may that continue.

Gifted moments…..

Philarmonic Dining Rooms – Liverpool

We went to see a play last night and just before it started I turned to George.

“It’s lovely to see you.”

Frowning, he replied “But you only saw me yesterday.”

I looked away, paused, and turned back to him again.

“It’s lovely to see you today.”

He grinned. ❤

Thoughts and lovely things coming through words….

A.A. Milne, through Christopher Robin and Winnie the Pooh, knew how to light heartedly play life’s tune…

I look out of my window and see bright red roses blooming at the edge of the woods opposite. The same woods that Saint and I get to potter through later today.

The light glints off the beautiful blue glass angel my Mum and Dad brought back from The Isle of Arran.

A smell of freshly cut grass wafts through.

I have discovered a perfect bridge to play poohsticks with my soul buddy.

As I start work may the feeling of all these lovely gifts come through my words today.
