today as I rushed out into the new snow
the lovely miss tiddleywink from over the fields coming for her seasonal visit
the second field away from our bottom field...over a stream,isn't it just like a storybook.......
on my birthday on the 3rd of january...I had a magical walk with my beloved (and our two dogs)...discovered these green velvet trees in a copse where the dogs lead us to
in the storybook field is a derelict cottege and this lovely saucer was under some old straw...signifying new growth I feel :) it is from arklow pottery c.1940-50
....just in case anyone was concerned , I am now out of the bush and trying not to loose my (mind)....... initial good humour.
The schools are off for even longer now because of the snow and it feels so hard to find the serenity I need to make some new work tho ... and I really want to.
I keep reading the words I found on dear Renildes blog,I am sure that she would not mind if I shared them here.
while keeping still and silent
spring will come and grass will grow
all by itself
I am loving all this weather,and getting out into it. It is epic "normal" life has been halted , our silly little disorganised country is not capable of managing the roads etc, etc, everything is difficult to get to , to do...can you believe our minister of the environment has been away on holiday while the whole country is in need of salt for the roads, it is so embarresing :(
BUT........It has made me focus more on my imediate surroundings finding magic here and here.ie.the next field even.
I do love this time ,it feels like it is slipping away , when the snow melts ...when I can no longer let one day go into another ...when I need to make sense of something....that will happen soon enough x
