Friday’s Letters


Peace and Tranquility

This week I bring you photographs. Two of Rawcliffe lake sent in by Mark and some photographs from our lovely nature reserve at St Nick’s, where my class usually takes place.

Yesterday I spent a day on the St Nick’s site. We are beginning to try and reach out and make steps towards running the class again. It’s strange returning to such a familiar place after so long, everything was very lush and teaming with butterflies.The good old Dragon Stones are standing steady and ready for visitors.

Wherever you are I hope that these pictures bring some solace and that you have somewhere of your own that you can get some tranquility. Even a beautiful painting on a wall can take us to another place.

I’m taking some annual leave next week, but look out for blog posts, I will schedule them ahead, but we won’t be having a Friday post. Monday’s poem has been sent in by Jane and is inspired by the hedgehog class last week, it’s really lovely and I can’t wait for you all to read it.

Hope you all have a good week! See you soon,
