IMG-20150818-WA0010

I took this picture at the end of a very long day of walking – and it is completely untouched.  No filters, no improvements – just nature doing what it does best.

August is my month for self-indulgence.  The time that I take for myself to do one of the things that I have grown to love the most.
So far this month I have enjoyed time walking with lovely people in the Peak District, the Lake District, across the South Downs, on Brownsea Island, around the Devil’s Punch Bowl and down some of the LipChis way.

I have plans to walk some of Offa’s Dyke in a couple of weeks – and that leaves me with some empty space on my calendar next week!

So…   Where shall I go for my next walking adventure?

Day 313 - Cinderella Tango

An evening that started with trees silhouetted against a purple sunset sky and ended with a dawn chorus just before sunrise.
And in between..?
Tango in London in springtime. The princes of the dance floor whirled Cinderella until her glass slippers wore thin and carriages were called.
The happy is to be found in the moment, not hidden in the ending.

Day 283 - Sunset in a Bottle

I recently heard Jim Croce singing Time in a Bottle on the radio, for the first time in a long time. Beautiful lyrics.

There are lots of things I’d like to save in a bottle, to keep safe, take out and experience all over again.

The smiles of my children through the ages. Sunsets and dramatic skies. Those head-over-heels in love moments. Time. Giggles. Cuddles and hugs. Purple. Precious moments with ones we’ve lost. The way hospitals used to smell. A rainbow. The first movements of a child inside me. Love. So much more…

Here are the lyrics to the Jim Croce song…

If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I’d like to do
Is to save every day
Till Eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you

If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I’d save every day like a treasure and then,
Again, I would spend them with you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
I’ve looked around enough to know
That you’re the one I want to go
Through time with

If I had a box just for wishes
And dreams that had never come true
The box would be empty
Except for the memory
Of how they were answered by you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
I’ve looked around enough to know
That you’re the one I want to go
Through time with

Day 230 - Rainbows and Stars

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky. ~Rabindranath Tagore

When it rains, look for rainbows.
When it’s dark, look for stars.

Day 218 - Egypt

‘Her posture is as grounded as a pyramid, as she sits lost in reverie. She is solitary, but not in need of company as she holds council with herself. She glows with the colors of a desert sunset, and her light comes from within.’ ~ Clista Prelle-Tworek
