What is considered a weed, worth little in our flower gardens, was first bright yellow, then closed up again before reopening to this majestic perfection. Look closely. Each blossom is perfectly white, artistically formed, like a magic wand, ready...
A dandelion 'clock' or seedhead
Exactly after I said 'let's go', two people walked past us and as though in immediate response – though they were talking to each other and not to me – one of them said 'Sure, let's go, but go where?' This struck me as being quite funny, especially...

There was a beautiful sight though - every tree in the park was laden with glistening raindrops. I assume that heavy rain tends to cause the water to fall off the tree, while lighter drizzle doesn't allow the drops to accumulate in this way, or...

I knew the plant was called Old Man's Beard but only when I looked it up did I realised it was called Traveller's Joy which is doubly appropriate. I've noticed before that if anything my sense of wonder is increased when I'm having a difficult time...

Tea has for many come to symbolise the opening up of dialogue in workplaces or at home. 'Would you like a cup of tea?' is a question which can mean 'would you like to talk to me/let me talk to you about how my day is going?' It can also provide much...

I'm up early to do my readings. I meditate using a form of centering prayer. And I write a letter to Mother God to connect with loving God. Every day at the park I meditate on some aspect of the park: 1. The shade trees are like the nurturing and...

However, it's given me an extra impulse to get out on my walks. I like walking anyway, but when things are busy or the weather isn't great I find it harder to get out. I'm not a fan of targets, finding that I feel down if I don't meet them, so some...
