Good evening friends! Mostly sunless skies again today, starting as a chill, blotchy curdled grey. By mid afternoon transient slivers of blue were visible and the air began to feel thinner, less sticky. Even when days still feel a little wintery the early smouldering sparks of life are unmistakable now, peeling buds and rank on rank of green spear-tips shooting up, chaotic straggles of nests proudly occupied by oil-black coots white-crowned and making their popcorn alarm calls at anything that imagines passing nearby.

Taking a long time to move from purpose to purpose or moment to moment for now, hard to build momentum and organise my thoughts – but physically at least more mobile and less sore.

May we find respite and release from pain and grief today!
