On Thursday I went for a looong walk in the walks to clear my mind and help with some inspiration. The woods were just so glorious in their Autumn colours and frequently I had to stop and breathe in the delicious scents and sounds, the tranquility filled my soul from the tip of my head to the soles of my boots.
This is one of my favourite paths. Sadly, my camera just doesn't do it justice.
This tree was an entire metropolis for birds and squirrels and all manner of insects.
Up close, you can see the swirly,gnarly tangle of it all.
Further on through my walk, I came to an enchanted bridge. Taking a deep breath, I ducked low, made my wish and walked beneath it.
Into an ancient grove of Yew trees, magical and wise.
The walk took me deep into an old farm estate where a couple of my friends are lucky enough to have cottages. I was out for over two hours and my legs really ached, but my spirit was soothed and I felt connected to the Earth and for the first time in ages I felt real - really real :)
