CB&W: All About Nature

In amongst the minutiae, the everyday, the hither and thither of life rushing by, there’s no time to talk, no time to rest, no time… Stop. Breathe deep.

CB&W: Sunlit Leaves

They hide amongst the sunlit leaves, with only hints of movement to betray their presence. If you watch carefully you might see a darting shape, there and gone in the blink of an eye. But listen. You can hear them: the swish of fluttering wings; the pattering of tiny footsteps on branches. And there - the tinkling of... Continue Reading →
