…and heaven and nature sing…

So Christmas time approaches. Yes, every year it starts earlier, and the bling dong merrily starts in November. We did put up and decorate our tree early in December, to coincide with the annual Dance Show which A&P partake in (We just watched the DVD, v. proud of them all! Well done Q**), but to […]

Wild natureness

Do you remember the nature table at junior school?  Most of us are intrigued by nature, wild animals. ‘Back to nature’ and the ‘greenwash’ industry is a big deal. Many of us are currently loving our serving of ‘Blue Planet’ on Sunday nights. Please don’t yawn, it’s discussed ad infinitum elsewhere, but recently I have […]

Fruit

It’s mid summer -ish and after a lot of hard work, things bear fruit. Working in a school support role, I admire, from a distance, the work that teachers and classroom staff do. They are at the sharp end (and occasionally blunt end) of education. I am told, and can see, the work is extremely […]

Where am I? Where are we, when the longest queue in the small-town-village is the queue for the bookies, and the popular entertainment of choice is escapist superhero mystery & myth action movies? I am thankful – I sit here in my garden, what I have right now are memories of a good holiday, a […]

Hope, trust, breath, life?

When the sun’s out, we can be content with the things we recognise; the patterns, habits, and narratives or stories that give meaning to stuff. These everyday assurances or comforts will differ from person to person. Occasionally the sun is not out – sometimes assurances break down. Our assumptions, the things we rely on being […]

Morning…

A friend asked me to think about an image for sharing, that evokes hope, life, renewal…? At this time when constructs and assumptions we have relied on and perhaps taken for granted, what gives us hope? I asked a few people, and a common response seemed to be nature and the beauty of creation. “Nature; […]

An Enchanted Lake

…cold, malevolent, and fantastic as a fairy tale.  Everyone’s so miserable today… said a colleague, and yes there was a milieu of grey in the air. In part perhaps, due to the weather… and the media’s bounty of doomy uncertainty. “It’s down to us…” I said in a rare moment of clarity. And it is […]
