This week I am grateful for….
Nettle risotto, the first of the year, with fresh nettles and wild garlic…so delicious.
Planting seeds, basil, lettuce, hyssop, dill, echinacea…… the promise of healing to come.
Finch in the polytunnels, playing for the first time instead of tucked up in the sling.
Air drying clay and our coil pots, my first in about thirty years……
Heart sharing, and listening, being heard…
Bare feet outside, I’d forgotten.
Spring flowers and the sunshine…. and hawthorn leaves. Lily used to refuse cabbage and spinach but munch happily on wild greens every Spring.
The lengthening and brightening days start to awaken connection, feeling, sharing, crying; after the months of hibernation I always feel newly peeled in Spring, slightly raw and exposed, less grey, feeling more intensely, joy and grief in equal measure.
Starting a new writing project…..an important one….
What are you grateful for this week?
