The weather changes daily. We celebrate the mild when it rains, the sun’s rays and clear blue skies on colder days. It’s the kindest Winter we’ve known since moving to the Highlands.

Haibun: Feeling is Believing

When I fly across the lagoon my front paws curl towards my heart. My thoughts settle in a place deep inside. The only thing that exists, is this moment.

Time slows down, suspended in mid-air. It feels easy to adjust, find your balance. All you have to do, is believe.

where guidance can find you
to give you wings

When you reach the other side, stretch out and prepare for landing. The sand will be soft, time becomes real again.
