25.11.2020 Today’s finds…

I hope you all enjoyed thinking about this mornings creative writing tasks. I had fun thinking about the characters of Autumn and Winter. I had such a colourful walk that I could imagine ‘Autumn’ as a person bejewelled in flowers and a riot of colours!

I also thought about regeneration and the opportunity to give as much back to nature as we can through our small urban patches of green, front yards and available spaces. I’ve seen alleyways done up with flower boxes and paintings in the past and I imagined what the York alleyways might look like if they were turned into vibrant community places….food for thought!!

For anyone local to York – one of our lovely participants put me onto this free resource of green walks around the city: https://www.itravelyork.info/downloads/download/9/wildlife-walks Enjoy!

See you online next week!
Best wishes,
