We would like to dedicate this post to the victims of today’s attack outside Finsbury Park mosque (London) and their families and friends, to the peaceful actions of imam Mohammed Mahmoud who appealed for calm and to peace and understanding among all the people who share this amazing earth.

We wish everyone a blessed and peaceful week.

With love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx

Haibun: Jewels In The Sand

It is that time of year when some fellow bloggers put a lot of effort into creating a competition. A competition between bloggers, some of whom have become friends. A competition that sends some bloggers into a vote-recruiting frenzy, asking anyone who reads their blog to ‘help them win’. It has very little to do with the real jewels in the sand.

We are grateful to have been nominated for the second year running. The intent behind the nomination we are sure, came from a good place. However, we do not believe in the circus this competition creates. Like we have said many times before, your love, comments and smiles across the miles are more than reward enough.

see these waves
channel a lagoon of dreams
when the gorse blooms

To us, the notion that one blogger is better than another is absurd. We are all winners.

Haibun: Health Returns

Black whippet outdoor portrait

This warm breeze of Spring sings to my heart. It feels so good to walk beside the loch after resting. The water is high with melted snows and the nesting season has begun. The air is pure. The healthy smell of pine, earth and water lifts my soul and makes me feel whole again. I am so grateful for all your well wishes following my injury. From my heart to yours, a very big thank you to you all.
