Two weeks ago was hot, like a summertime inferno. One week ago was cold, like deep and despairing wintertime. And today it is warm. Cardigan weather, perhaps. It’s the time of year where the seasons flex their muscles and battle for dominance. It’s a tug of war that shifts the weather faster than I switch…… Continue reading Now Time for the Weather
My footprints are all over the globe, as I’ve trekked and trawled and slipped and stumbled in snow and rain and cyclonic winds. But also blue skies; bitterly cold, but blue. I’ve seen land locks and mountains and oceans, sailed canals and lakes, bathed in history, and seen four countries in one day. Tonight I’m…… Continue reading The Extravaganza, and Home

It’s spring here, finally, and I’m pretty excited. I’ve always thought I loved summer, and people always love to ask if you’re a “summer or winter person”, but I think the secret hides in spring. Summer’s sticky, there are spiders everywhere, and my skin burns way too easily for someone spending so much time outside.…… Continue reading Save Spring
