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 aContinue reading “From the water’s edge”
I went for a walk this am, to visit one of our local pond which is a small sanctuary for wildlife and a great bird watching spot. I was sat on the bench there, listening to all the bird songs and enjoying watching them all. As I got a bit closer to take a pictureContinue reading “Local Wildlife Protection Mission…”

I knitted a new doll last week and I went on an explorative journey. I could write about every step of the process, but I feel like that would probably be boring. I found it very therapeutic, in a self-reflective way.
Autumn is slowly drawing to a close, with the winter solstice around the corner. Our walks are getting more wet and muddy. The sky displays gorgeous and ever changing artwork reflecting the light of the sun, hiding somewhere behind the clouds…
Dear friends, I hope you are well and that you are enjoying Autumn wherever you are. I’m now getting ready for my next 6 day workshop which will start in exactly a week from now. My last workshop at Emerson College was in early June. It was the end of Spring, the days were longerContinue reading “What if people think I’m crazy?”
Wakehurst is one of my favourite place around here… I always enjoy spending time there, it’s such an inspiring location… Especially at this time of the year. Here are some photographs of our day there…
