An encounter of a powerful kind that happens very rarely in life.
I have had my blog for almost a year. In that time I have been sceptical about it and thought it a bit weird. However, I now understand the social aspect of it and that it is a priceless way to connect with people of like mind in a world where we are often bemused with life and can be so isolated.
I have connected with some incredible people over the year.
So, three of us bloggers met up on Monday - the fabulous glass artist and thinker of many gentle things; liZZie from My Generic Medium and the incredible needle-felt queen and inspirational toy artist; Gretel from Middle of Nowhere. (actually Gretel isn't quite in the middle of nowhere, she's just in the other direction to the one I took on the way to visit her. that's all).
It was a wonderful day, an insightful day, a day of 'bloody hells!' and other exclamations. We explored a woodland that was simply beautiful. An ancient place full of wild flowers and things for scoffing (which I have a penchant for!). We sat in a welcoming home surrounded by interesting things and dozing, forgetful cats.
The day was so full of the exploration and adventures of each others lives that I didn't manage to photograph much. That's a wonderful thing and is a sign of a great day out.
I did manage to take a picture and here it is...
... many of you might not be able to see what this picture has secreted away in it, but we know it's there. :) It was a perfect ending to our walk.
This is a beautiful piece of glass work given as a gift to two of us. It came in a little party bag full of other goodies and a strolling carrot. Thank you!!!!
I'm probably not allowed to have this picture on my blog so it might disappear soon! It is part of the day we had though, so here it is, for a bit. Thank you too!!!!!
Thanks you two for being honest and real and open. You are rare things in this world. See you both very, very soon. :)
Below is some pictures taken by liZZie (over at my generic medium) of a basket I made for her cats...
warm hugs and much love,
