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

Bubbles and beaks

curlew

Out walking with my Mum earlier, our attention was focused on the rather glorious sunset over the ocean. Until something summoned our attention:

A bubbling call

Summons our attention

We scan the shoreline

Until we see it

Fat dumpy body

Grey brown

Camouflaged against weed-covered rocks

Long curved beak

In silhouette against the sea

There the curlew calls

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. Your picture reminds me so much of my own home by the sea and of times spent … just me, the sea and the wind.

    I miss those times right now.

  2. Wonderful!! And what a beautiful beach!
