Yes Silvia, tone, imagery lovely although would've loved a photo of your family landscapes. Yes moving home been there and great until it isn't. If you can't find your 'fit' time just slips past and down the bitter hole of regret ya go before you know. That's the imp bit the awareness needed in familiar but unfulfilling places. Gotta return to read through. Best vibe so far! ☺️

Thank you for sharing your love of nature and its beautiful ability to help us connect to the light in the midst of darkness. I resonate with it deeply. Seeking solace in nature when life throws curveballs. May you keep finding what you need in those quiet moments. P.S. I am eagerly waiting for the return of the local house martins. Living on the edge of the countryside but still very urban, we've had quite a few visits from kites in our neighbourhood. I adore their calls.

Yes I would have liked to share some photos but I don’t have my camera with me, just my ancient phone! Yes it is a strange feeling being back here, like I’m a jigsaw piece that doesn’t quite fit anymore.

Hi Sally, new to your page and enjoyed reading about your views on nature.

My wife, Beverley, both enjoyed the countryside and spent as much time as possible in the Northumbria and Durham areas.

Unfortunately, my wife, soulmate and best friend, passed away unexpectedly in April.

Emotions are still raw, but I have comfort in all the happy memories we made in over thirty-seven years together.

I can relate to your present location as I have lived in both Northamptonshire and Cambridgeshire, both beautiful counties in their own right.

Look forward to reading future updates x
