Life, crafty stuff, long walks, thoughts, and little oddities.

Contemplative drive


Six hours of driving, A falcon perches on a branch, king over all it surveys. A valley of mist, figures looming out of the gloom. The pylons stride across the land. A rainbow shines briefly amidst the sun and the rain. The road unwinds in front of me, mile after mile of grey. Ducks float on a pond, dancing in the raindrops. The sheep turn their backs on the traffic, content where they are. At last the bridge into Wales, red dragon rising to greet me. Home to a different place.

Taking time out to ponder life and everything else. This is the space where I press the pause button on my busy life to reconnect with God, to re-energize, and focus on my creativity. Time out to blow bubbles, walk on the beach, write some stuff, do some needlework, and generally enjoy life once again. You can view my main blog at www.iggandfriends.wordpress.com. I also have another blog at www,faithinthehome.wordpress.com, and a arty/crafty one at http://52weeksofcreations.wordpress.com/. I hope you enjoy visiting :)

  1. Igga&…, do you know the Welsh poet Glyn Edwards?
    And the red dragon, a road metaphor, or an actual gate?
