captive sunlight beams
from within delicate spheres
as ephemeral as purest serenity
suspended in careless precision
upon a blade’s edge
It’s been a while since I posted anything more than a wordless photograph on my blog, so I thought it was about time I shared something a little longer. I decided a poem and a bit of a personal update would be the best idea.
Last time I wrote, my sister and I had just learned that our landlord was selling the house and that we needed to find a new place to live. Well, we’re now in our new home, and we’ve settled happily into our new village. I’ve already been on multiple walks, exploring the lanes around and about. I’m looking forward to many more – though I’ve not yet found anywhere quite like the meadow! I’m sure I’ll be posting a fair few photographs over the coming months.
I think I’ve mentioned in a number of posts now that my sister and I have been setting up a new website where we’ll be sharing positive environmental news. This will include inspirational stories about grassroots projects going on around the world, as well as information about discoveries and innovations, government policies, and the ways in which we can all make a difference in our own everyday lives. There’s also a section about how we can connect with nature. This is still an ongoing project. With having to move house so unexpectedly it had to be put on hold for a while, but we’re now back on track. The site should now be properly up and running some time over the next week… if everything goes as planned.
This website, which is called The Rooter, has taken up most of my free time over the past six months or so – which is the main reason why I haven’t been on here very much. It will be good to finally go live with it, even if only because it will be nice to actually write for an audience again! We’ve always wanted our site to look ‘finished’ before we started getting visitors, so we’ve written a lot of material to fill all the different pages. Because the website hasn’t been live, they’re all unread by anyone other than us. Once we’re properly up and running, I’ll be reblogging some of the articles on here. We’d love for you to have a read.
Some of you may also have noticed that I’ve changed my blog’s appearance. I’m still tweaking this, so any feedback would be gratefully received.
That’s all for now. I’ll try to make it around to a few blogs, but if I don’t make it to you, please don’t take offence. I love you all. ❤
