On Water L

if overwhelmed

put everything down, big breath

then go fill kettle

n.b. That’s it for ‘On Water’ for now, I feel the blog has reached saturation point with this theme and fifty is a good number to pause on. I will ensure to drip-feed more into the On Water series as I go. Thank you to everyone who has read, liked and commented on the series. Tomorrow sees the start of a new(ish) theme

On Leaving

Of all the advice

I’ve ever had, the best is

Close the door gently

~

n.b. Or stay and talk things through. Kettle on?

L3 (Day 49): In Shorts

Seventeen degrees

Out to the broad. Quick cup of tea

Sunshine on me knees.

n.b. The warmth held until around 5 p.m. despite a strong breeze. See the striations in the late afternoon sky. A lot of wind for weather forecasters to talk about today: they talk a lot about the wind.

On Taste

Tea leaves taste bitter

Taken without sugar grains

Subtlety blossoms
