With a view like that , I would always hope that the bus was running late !
We have an amazingly good bus service here thankfully. (Though I take your point <ary B!)
I can almost smell the fresh air - clear and cool. A good thinking morning.
It turned into a lovely summy breezy day.
Almost black and white pictures and yet not at all.
I read something this morning which has had me thinking all day. Not related to your photographs but I'd like to share anyway. Reading a poem by Judith Herzberg ('Alone in a small house', alas my translation, not available in English) in which she says that 'only in a small house one can think properly, the walls are close enough there.' Isn't that interesting.. and is it true for me? I have this notion it is but it requires more imagining first. Is it true for you you think?
Hi Cath, I like that quote. I've had quite a few thoughts on that idea but nothing I can articulate clearly yet... will hopefully return when I have corralled them all - in my small house!
I find it to be true for me Cath, but more so when my own energy field has expanded so much that I need a physical 'box' to contain it and bring my focus back inwards. To not be distracted by too much physical or 'energetic' outer world. Other times, if my thinking is stuck I need the wide expanse of a vista from the top of a hill or the ocean. But always somewhere simple/beautiful. A cluttered house would be no good for clear thinking, no matter how small!
At the risk of commenting too much, now that I've read what Cathy has posted, it made me think that in a small house we are less far removed from nature, and perhaps that connection with the simplicity of the elements makes space for clear thought.
Lotta, the more I think about it, the more I suspect it is true for me mainly because I am an introvert. I remember how I loved playing under a table, behind curtains or in a closet as a child because there my imagination knew no boundaries and I could create my own stories.
Me too Cath! Are you also an HSP?
found it online....giving me food for thought.
Alone in a Small House
Alone in a small house you can think pretty good
the walls are close enough
while the rain with slit joints
you should be able to hear the rain
the roof leaks at the usual places
there you've put down plastic
positioned pails, if there's a window
even a plant, alone
in a small house
you can think pretty good.
Wonderful Cathy, that you managed to find it online. This morning it was a poem I read, now it is becoming shared food for thought. That is wonderful too.
Lovely contrasts of light and dark. It feels very early morning-ish. And you and the bird, both waiting for the right moment to take off!
I am sure that bird was posing for me. Am loving the conversation here.....no such thing as commenting too much!
