This is big time for me, my first blog! I’ve been witnessing wonderful things from nature and sharing them with people I meet or jotting them down for years. Now I am going to jot them down on this blog.
I’m lucky, I live in beautiful West Dorset, but these messages used to come to me when I lived in central London too. In this monthly blog I wish to share with others some of the joyful moments I discover during my every day humdrum life! As I walk my dogs twice a day I observe, I look around me. It’s like a walking meditation; I am in the present moment, in the NOW. I’m not concerned about tomorrow, how I will pay a bill or deal with a future problem. I don’t think of past hurts or mistakes. I’m just walking observing. Sometimes I head out on a walk feeling tired and sad, I always and I mean always return home with a gentle smile on my face.
Be it a brief exchange with a stranger, another dog walker, an old person, a child, in someway I find a teaching from such an exchange. But more often it is my wildlife friends or the landscape that offers wisdom. My next blog post, below is an example.
