The rains have stopped and the glen is full of bird song. It’s good to smell pine and freshly watered earth after the dry spell. A faint path is covered in paw prints from furry folk who walk here in the night. The more we journey here, the more we feel two worlds connecting.
linked lives ribbons of white bells glitter in the sun
The crowds have left the beaches and a new calm returns. We are grateful the sand remains as pure and clean as we found it in our lockdown days. The rising sun takes the edge of the sharp wind that blows in from the North. As Eivor chases a yellow ball, we reflect how all that’s gone before has brought us to this moment.
new coolness even in circles the path remains a path
Echoes of drums and fiddles float through an open window, a virtual ceilidh in full swing. Dogs run big circles on the beach beside the turquoise water. My mind drifts and settles. Becoming sand, becoming sea.
For more than fifty years I have taken part in peaceful demonstrations and art projects in support of equality and fair treatment of all. We have come a long way and still have further to travel to create a world where everyone feels welcome.
Wishing you all a peaceful Thursday and may you stay safe and well,
with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx
