Sunday Reflection


It's been a difficult week. Not for me, particularly. Indeed there has been the usual mix here of work, play, crafts and cakes - those ordinary yet extraordinary moments that make up our days. But... today they seem irrelevant - indulgent even.


In recent weeks, on the Islands, we have been no strangers to untimely tragic deaths. And, from all corners of the world, in the last few days, comes news of so many lives lost. Cut short, in a sudden and terrible way. 


I have no answers - no words for this.


I can only remind myself of what is good and beautiful in the world- and be grateful. 





To send love and light out over the endless seas


To remember that these rocks have endured on this Earth for 3 billion years - and to know my place

  8. I find that we can look at the positive or the negative and sometimes it's difficult to switch between the two. Turning off the news helps. I hope you feel better this week and the photos are stunning!
