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 longer and the promises of a hot summer were in the air. The temperature was going up, the natural world was in bloom and all the insects were very busy.

Now it’s Samhain – A time to celebrate the spirits, past and present – Halloween is in only a few days and Autumn is definitely here. The trees have shed their leaves, the insects activity has slowed right down, getting ready for winter. It’s the opposite time of the year.

I love receiving emails from previous workshop attendees. I love reading your stories and how animal communication may have enhanced your connection with the natural world and the animals in your life.

Mrs Pony

Mrs Pony was born out of a happy accident. I bought a few balls of yarn from a charity shop yesterday morning (the lady kindly sold me a few balls for £1) with the intention to knit a creature out of it.

One of the yarn was pink with a label around it that read: 12g Knit a Pony.

From the Bird Hide…

Boy and I went birdwatching with some friends today and we were very lucky. As Boy and his friend were busy looking for large branches of trees to throw in the water, I stayed in the bird hide with my binoculars and I got to see ducks, crows, Canadian geese, a cormorant, a heron in flight, landing on the water, a kingfisher, a blue-tit and an Iceland gull… It was fantastic!
