Where the people have spoken.

Monday morning. Sophie is up and out early. She stops digging for moles and watches the sun rise. For the briefest of moments the fur on her flanks flames red against the darkness.

Later, on our way down to the little waterfall, Bob stops and stares at a Jay eating berries on a branch. Neither dog nor Jay are in a hurry to move on.

In a world of quarter truths the honesty of a morning like this and the chance to walk in beauty makes me breathe deep.

And were there ever words of Shakespeare so timely ?

    Thanks . . . I needed that

  2. I turned off the Today progamme and listened to Sir Ian McKellen speaking Shakespeare's timely and timeless words, and feel just a little batter. Thanks! Gail.

  3. At times like these, it's the simple things in nature that gladden our hearts.
    Stirring words from a wonderful actor.

  4. Thank you for the link. The comments on it were pretty good, too.

  5. Fantastic Link. Thanks for posting it.

  6. How very much I look forward to coming here each morning.
    I have a terrible computer (the less said, the better) and can't open many of your links. I'll have to imagine the Shakespeare.

  7. The first picture looks like a painting! Bob and the jay tells its own story. Both pictures are so peaceful. Thank you for the Shakespeare link. I have heard it many times before ( one of my favorite ), but never have I heard it spoken and explained the way Sir Ian McKellen did. Timely? Oh, yes! Thank you.
