It’s over ten years since I first started writing this blog.
Over fifteen or more since my blogs were hosted by Country Living UK magazine.
However, in one fell swoop all the postings and countless photographs were removed from the CL site when new owners took control and the entire site was given a revamp. No one on the hosted site was given any warning, just, whoosh, they were all consigned to the cyberspace dustbin!
If ever you manage to retrieve any of them do let me know. I have searched to the point of physical exhaustion and not been able to find them…so, yes, it is possible to remove stuff from the internet without a trace! There is no point in sending me links to research, for if you cannot find them, I certainly cannot, (no internet connection except a hotspot on my phone!).
The wildflower seeds I scattered around the fire pit have come through with lots of Poppies and Nasturtium.
Paths are closing up as fast as I can open them…the growth is amazing!
And Jack doesn’t mind one bit, as he sees the adventure in everything!
Now the season of Lughnasadh draws in, a mere two weeks or less to the wonderful festival that heralds Autumn in the west of Ireland. Yes, the ancient peoples lived by the light and measured all by the light, unlike our man-made calendars and clocks. it is the light we follow!
Looking for changes in the light, how it affects the interior of our homes and the lives of the sentient beings all around us, is a magical way to live. Someone commented recently that it was not possible to live a Bealtaine life in the cities. I disagree, having lived in London for thirty years with an ever-growing mindset of awareness of light, seasons and a desire for simplicity. I was happy there too!
