I find it astonishing that the girl I grew up with at boarding school, the girl who made life barely bearable during my six years of convent living, the girl whose arm was continually linked in mine, vanished, like my crushed cranberry throw, that faded from dusky pink to a honey smear one summer; our…

For years now I’ve walked past a horse barn at the top of the lane and imagined being called over to help. It has long been a desire of mine to get to know horses. I’d love one to walk over to his gate and whinny at me in recognition like the dogs who run…

Without fail every year a little wren comes into my garage and builds herself a nest. She usually chooses a rubber Wellie, because they already have strong walls; all she has to do is fill it with sticks and leaves and grasses, fashion it a bit and lay an egg or two. This year I…

Sitting in bed one Sunday morning I heard what sounded like wind sighing loudly in the trees. I looked high into the woods, not a leaf was stirring. I continued with my papers and tea. The noise came again, once more I checked the movement of the highest branches… Stillness. “Did you hear that?” I…

The stone has been rolled away and the tomb is empty! Alleluia! For we Christians that means Jesus was who He said He was and had finished what He was sent to do on earth. Alleluia! Our Redeemer lives! He has regained possession of His created in exchange for His death.  He has made amends….

Early on in March an order was issued that all restaurants, fast food and dine-in, coffee and sandwich shops, even wineries and breweries had to close unless they could offer take-out or delivery. These were considered essential services. Yep, alcohol is considered a COVID-19 essential. No dine-in or propping up the bar because of that…

Trying to praise and worship the Lord at home is difficult. Traditional church used to make it so easy for me! I’d trot off to mass on Sundays and Holy Days and all at once I’d be in another place that smelled faintly of incense; A Sacred, Holy Space. Now, with the churches closed down…

I suppose we have a burn each year as the wood and vines pile up and we can no longer ignore them… there’s only so many wild-life habitats we can create! When the social-distancing became a thing and we had to stay at home because everywhere was closing and groups larger than ten were being…

I think this rainy weather must be irritating the young bulls as much as it is us! They’re bellowing and banging heads together, Displaying. Pawing the ground, heads down, snorting, ready to charge. Hanging out in grumbly groups; Generally disgruntled. Except for these two youngsters, just getting away from the crowd and staying still, next…

It’s been wet since February!  I’m sure there have only been a handful of days when the sun’s either come out or it’s been cloudy, dry and windy. Along with the corona virus the weather seems to have settled a huge, depressing cloud over everything…and I feel like Andy Capp mooching along the street, hands…
