These photos are from late on Friday, and a walk to Gullane Point to mark the end of the week. We were longing to be outside and by the water, but while it was cooler after the heat of earlier in the week, the humidity was high, so we chose an easy walk for the lads – for Bracken in particular – and one where we were likely to find a breeze. Winding along the clifftop path, the sound of the waves is amplified. Every time we walk here this strikes me: it’s like a gentle roar, and it’s a sound that never fails to calm the senses.
A NEW YEAR4th January 2022
The last time I shared a blog post here, I started by writing: How did we get to September? At that point, I hadn’t shared a post since July and couldn’t believe how the time had just passed. And yet here I am, writing this post at the beginning of January, a whole four months later. I’m not really one for New Year resolutions. I think it’s good to have some ideas and hopes for the year ahead, but resolutions feel too inflexible for these evolving times. I clearly recall starting 2020 with resolutions (didn’t we all?). So, no resolutions, but perhaps an intention or two would be okay, starting with making/finding the time to sit down and write here. Just to sit and write.
