Serenity

Serenity, peacefulness, tranquility, what a lovely way to be. But so many of us live our lives in a very different state and that includes me recently.

Luckily through my workplace I have been able to take a mindfulness course for the last few weeks and I leave each session totally relaxed.

How are YOU feeling today, why not take some time out for yourself?

Serenity is Tina’s Lens Artist Challenge theme this week and I felt totally serene in the meadow on Sunday.

Small things in the valley park

My favourite place to walk in the city is Ludwell Valley Park, I’ve posted a few times about it. The management of Exeter’s six valley parks has recently been taken over by Devon Wildlife Trust, ensuring the continued opportunities for walking and enjoying nature.

There’s an abundance of plant life, something to see all year round and stunning views.

Last week I decided to focus on the small things, some of which tend to be overlooked.

Here’s a slideshow.

The parks circle the city with beautiful wildlife corridors, free for all to enjoy, does your town or city have similar?

It’s elemental

One of the most memorable destinations I’ve visited is India, a country of contrasts, it’s both backward and progressive. wealthy and poor, rainy and has monsoon and drought.

These little dwellings were in the Thar desert, Rajasthan.The earth was parched and only big old trees had any greenery. I can’t imagine how enough food was produced for people and livestock, but somehow they scrape an existence.

The air was filled with the sound of the helicopter flypass overĀ  over Britannia Royal naval College, when my son passed out at the end of his officer training. It was a very proud mummy day, because he’d jumped from Chief Petty Officer to Sub-lieutenant.

I’ve chosen earth and air for Amy’s elemental Lens artist challenge this week, but you can choose fire, wood or water as well.
