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

Winter’s Song


Flakes of snow blown on the wind brush my cheeks. I seem to be the only one mad enough to step out. The sea is low today, exposing an unexplored stretch of sand. I wend my way out to it, tiptoeing through shallow rockpools and slippery seaweed. Newly washed sand, arc after arc bending round the bay, with only the prints of birds on it. Out to the edge, where water meets land, poised on the boundary. On the cusp of the tide, the waves lap at my boots, gently caressing them. I stand and stare and breathe a while, drinking in the peace. Taking in the the music of this place. Then, tracing my solitary footprints, I head for home, winter’s song singing in my ears.

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. Nothing mad about a nice walk by the sea when there’s a bit of snow. I think you found a very nice place in space and time.

    On a different note…here’s a nice pic from my cousin Paddy for you…
