I love to observe life and to try to capture, and share, some of it’s beauty. I believe that by slowing down, watching and understanding what is going on around us, we can begin to appreciate what is really important in life. Every action we make causes a ripple… let’s make that a positive ripple, in response to all the negativity that surrounds us every day.

    Day 1: Scruffy slips past hubbie as he opens the back door briefly and makes a dash for it, up the lane. I go out to see where hubbie has got to and am greeted with the sight of him walking back down the hill, in the rain, in his dressing gown and slippers! Meanwhile… Read more
