I'm re-posting this again from a couple of days ago because for some reason it didn't appear properly and very few people were able to see it which was a shame because I think it's a beautiful photo from Ruth and I'm very proud of my Purple podded peas from the allotment, absolutely delicious !
“This country is the asylum of nations
and it will defend that asylum to the last ounce of its treasure.”
(The London Times - 1853)
'Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all'
Too much imagination, too many miles apart
That's the distance from desire to something true
These love songs and negotiations in between my head and heart
Always leave me somewhere caught between the two
Today with an improvised live vocal from my good friend the wonderful Lu Cozma
May we enter into lightness of spirit
and slip frequently into the feel of the wild
Let the clear silence of our animal being
cleanse our heart of corrosive words
May we learn to walk upon the earth
with confidence and clear eyed stillness
So that our minds may be baptized
In the name of the wind and light and the rain
(John O’Donahue - Benedictus)
The Piano Blog
I'm trying to play the Piano for a while most days. Just improvising whatever comes into my head.
Just to capture a moment.
