Peace

Today I ventured into another part of the forest. Everything felt so peaceful today. There is no other word that I can think of today to describe it. There was this overwhelming sense of peace. Entering and being in this forest of peace triggered an intense sense of peace in myself too. There is no other word I can use today. Just PEACE.

Zara

This is Zara, my dog. Today I want to honour this beautiful, kind, loyal companion. Every day she is jumping up and down, she is over the moon when we go walking. We walk together, we enjoy our walks together, on the lead, off the lead, it does not matter. There is this bond, so WE go for long walks rather than I and the dog. She is a real gift, she is so much part of our little family and I feel so grateful that she is in my life.

Sharing

It is a beautiful, murky morning. Sharing some pictures and thoughts feels important to me at this moment. The act of sharing gives me most pleasure. I remember so clearly the feeling when my paintings were exhibited. Painting is such a solitary activity and then allowing other people to see them is a bit overwhelming and at the same time so joyous because you share. Although this is a very anonymous medium, I do also get the same pleasure: fleeting thoughts, a moment of beauty, colours, emotions..they are offered to you and that is a nice thing to do. 

Trees

What better way to relax, to improve your sense of well-being than by walking, one foot in front of the other. For me it is especially true by walking through a woodland, a forest, surrounded by majestic trees, to be enveloped in their ancient, wise presence. I can’t help feeling like that. Trees mean the world to me!
