I am calling this post chasing the light. My intentions were good, everything planned; then time and circumstance seemed to plot against me. The clouds rolled in before I could take any photos, never mind I thought there’s always tomorrow so a new plan was forged. I woke to find the sun really wasn’t wanting to wear his hat, he had hidden himself away behind the persistent dark painted rain clouds and stayed put all day. I set things up, left the room for a while, kept coming back in hourly intervals but the light didn’t want to play.
Change of tack I thought lets go moody with a grainy washed out texture, so lets see, how does February look for me? Well most certainly a bit on the bleak side. Art is not imitating life I hasten to add, this month seems to disappear in a flash, the weeks have been filled with celebrations: Valentines, pancakes and many a birthday party. Now we are nearly at the end and we are to celebrate another special day in our house as Ruby turns 11 this coming Saturday. A full week of fun has been had and the streamers are at the ready for her party at the weekend.
So light or no light I found these blossom twigs calming, with a nod to Spring and a sense of simplicity placed in one of my favourite spots at home. To spend a few moments to be still and just be. Me and the blossom before the excitement builds again.
