You feel so tired
and yet you keep on scrolling
Looking for disillusions,
Something new to believe in.
Your life is like a
bad internet connection:
Doesn’t seem to get going,
Up or down. Or is it both?

It begins like a Tempest,
With a storm at sea.
I do feel like adulthood
is over rated.
It’s a palette of feelings:

Cows know their way home.
They know when to venture out
When the grass is sweet
then they know when to head back,
up the beaten track.

I really thought that was the end of that.
But clearly I was wrong.
No signs, no evidence. Just shreds of paper.
I could hear the unmistakable sounds… right above my head.
One of the dogs could hear it too, even though she chose to ignore it.
Maybe it’s the best way? Ignore it and it will just go away…
No, it’s just too tempting.
I just… have got to… go and have a look. Continue reading “Never really there.”
Here is a series of pictures I recently took from the water’s edge in Weirwood Reservoir, which is one of my favourite places around here. It is a big body of water made of the Medway River – even though it is only a stream at that point (the Medway starts around here), there is a dam at one end which keeps the water contained here.

I would like to think that I’m a naturalist. But mostly an urban naturalist.

May has vanished in a flash.
She’s disappeared. Gone. Like that.
Lost in thoughts
The garden still needs cleaning.
~”There were dragons when I was a boy…”
(How To Train Your Dragon, Cressida Cowell)
I feel like I have been bathing in the Dragon Energy for quiet some time now.
The Chinese horoscope animal is the Pig this year, but not in my house.
This year we came full circle with dragons…
Dragons have been a part of so many folk stories around the world. From China, India, Europe… But where are they now?

On my workshops I often share with the attendees how much I like the Rudyard Kipling story, The Cat That Walked By Himself, from Oh So Stories. you can read it Here.
This story is in a similar vein, but from Zimbabwe. It does encapsulate cats very well too… This is dedicated to all Women, Cats and Catwomen everywhere…
Once upon a time, there was a wild cat, who got tired of living alone and chose for herself a husband, another wild cat who she thought was the finest creature in all the jungle. Continue reading “A Cat Story…”
