This was one of those magical days when the spirits seem to be pulling the strings behind the scenery of every moment. I went out for an early morning walk with the dogs and was pondering the whys and wherefores of this blog.... why am I doing it? Who is it for? What am I supposed to be talking about? I went through the gate into a little piece of ancient woodland and immediately felt the threads of answers coming to my questions.
This is the way, said the signpost.
"We want you to show the hidden face of the land. Share the beauty of the ordinary and transmit your feeling for the sacredness of all of creation."
It was as if the woodland and it's denizens were whispering in my ear, I heard it so clearly, felt it so keenly. As I stepped through the gate on the way out I said out loud "Oh, so it's supposed to be a nature blog?" I looked down - and this is what I saw.
So now I know.
