I Miss it

  Earlier this year my life took a fundamental change. For medical reasons I was, and still am unable to get outside. Get to the places I love. While I can still drive, I cannot walk any distance so the ease of popping off along the river just to escape and revel in the natural world has ceased. I have written before about taking stuff for granted and now it appears that is exactly what I was doing. Taking stuff for granted...

Music and Photography

  As I was driving to one of my calls recently, I had my music on through the car sound system. There was a time I would have said stereo, but sound system is very “now”. I have a large and diverse taste in music but on this day, I was thinking not about the genre but the music itself. Why, for instance do I like certain pieces and others not so much? Why do I like certain instruments? To give an example I have the Beethoven...

The Sea

  There is something about the coast and the sea that gets to me. The sounds sights and smells all work together and whether it is for 5 mins or 5 hours’ time spent there always leaves me relaxed and refreshed. So, it was a couple of weeks ago when I went to Wells Next the Sea. The harbour and latterly the beach. It was supposed to be a photography trip but there were too many people around and setting up would have bought far...

The Small Stuff

      Recently there has been an advert on TV I cannot remember who it was for, but they said to look for and enjoy the small stuff. It is those bits you will remember. The big bits will come but the small bits are where it is at. Dawn I love the dawn. The gradual eruption of light cascading across the landscape.
