asked me to go
for a walk in the woods
I was so delighted
as it is over 5 years .....
since I have been able to walk there!
Look at the flower I've found Granny
Bigger than he is and so exciting!
found a Geocache in an old tree stump.
We all looked through our bags
but couldn't find a pen
so that he could date it to show
who had found it last!
What a pity!
The boys all
clambered up the bank so that they could
walk through this tree!....
A few years ago
I would have been up there with them!
Another of the boys had brought a folded mat
so that I could sit down
(as I need to do often to ease the pain)
He carried it around in his rucksack
and would ask, often, if I needed to sit
and as soon as I said yes
he would unroll it
ready for me.
I thought this part of the woods
The woods got darker...
I just love the way
the light has managed to struggle
through the dense canopy of the trees
and plays like a theatre foot-light
on the ferns below
I just cannot manage
what I'm feeling....
I love the way the light
shows up the shape
and texture of the ferns below!
Of course some young people
cannot see the magic of the moment
and start climbing the trees!!
Aren't these colours and textures beautiful?!
This was one of the banks
as we came out of the woods
So many beautiful things to see
if you can take time to look!
This is one of the good things
that has come out of these last years...
I would have raced through and enjoyed it
but, perhaps, not seen it!!
Now I have to go slow and stop occasionally,,,
and I see and enjoy so much!
Several people have mentioned, in the comments on my last post...about the large brown circles
'Getting used to the new view'
and suggested what to plant.....
I hope to seed grass where the large brown patches were and, also, plant climbing roses
or clematis, to grow on the damaged trees.
To carry on with the analogy of last week...
the decision to remove whatever is influencing or has 'taken over' your life is not an easy one...
it is painful and difficult
and sometimes it is easier to stay in the pain
where you are now
than to endure the pain of change
and the total life turn around that might happen
When the decision is made and 'the trees' are taken out it can leave a great hole....
so there is a need to exchange the damage
for a 'new look'....
that doesn't mean getting into...
another controlling situation
but getting advice
from friends and getting their help
to enable a change of view...
i.e. sitting looking at what you have lost
will only lead to depression
looking at what you can now do
in that area now that it is free ...is exciting!
so..what am I doing?
I'm just blocking the wrap
and like the more lacey look of it now.
I have also started on a Lucy bag...
I bought the yarn all ready last year...
still..at least I remembered what the yarn was for when I found it...and now I'm well into it!
