Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us every day.
Unseen, unheard, but always near; still loved, still missed and very dear.

Weekend morning rituals continued... Last weekend it was all about hedgerow foraging, learned from @al.macchiato, and natural beauty with @mielbotanicals. This weekend I am returning to some old loves (while attempting to rearrange the small people's drawers as they seem to have mushroomed over summer and nothing fits anymore!). I've always loved @therealmargaretatwood and I picked this up in a wee secondhand bookshop years ago on Fitzroy Street in Melbourne. Back then I was a daily customer. On the right is a my Kindle snuggled into a cover I fashioned out of an old sweater (what do you think @gingertwiststudio? x). That Kindle has hardly been out of its case over the past 4 years since the young apprentice joined us. Does this resonate with anyone? So, it remains to be seen which activity will get the most attention but I may just down tools and relax into the moment. Do you have a go to morning ritual (even if it's aspirational)? Happy weekend!

노트를 하나 장만했다-
어느덧 아버지를 보내드린지 2년이 되가고
아직도 아버지와의 기억과 추억 하나하나가 어제일처럼
생생하네:) 그 기억과 추억을 영원히 간직하기 위해
멋찐 노트 하나를 장만했고 노트에 아버지와의 추억을
한자 한자 써내려 가기로 했다.
노트북에 써놓을까 하다가 내 글씨로 직접 써가며
떠올리는게 좋을것같아 이렇게 예쁜 노트를 장만하였다.
이렇게 추억하나하나 적어내려가서 이 노트가 끝이 나면
나중에 결혼해서 내가 아가를 낳았을때 아가에게 보여주며 너의 외할아버지는 이런 분이셨단다 이야기해주며 다시 추억할수 있겠지^^
이 노트의 이름은 Remembering My Father 이다.
아버지와의 아름다웠던 추억들을 써내려가며
아버지와 함께인것 같은 기분을 매일매일 느껴야지..
On Thursday we were busy planting more than 850 Forget Me Nots in Nantwich and Northwich, and wow, they look fabulous. Thank you to everyone who came over for a chat and to the people who were able to plant their own flower, it certainly was an emotional day ❤️ You can visit the displays until Sunday 2nd September and every day the displays will grow as the final flowers are bought and planted in memory of loved ones. To find out more visit our website. #cheshire#nantwich#northwich#northwestengland#flowers#forgetmenot#remember#remembering#inmemory#charity#hospice
``````ठान कर मौत से युद्ध करता रहा
वक़्त को मात दे ख़ुद वो लड़ता रहा
देश हित है बड़ाजो सीखा कर गया
रत्न भारत का वो यह बता कर गया
राजनीति से ज़्यादा बड़ा देश है
ये अमर वाक्य उसका ही संदेश है
था अटल धर्म पर था अटल कर्म पर
ना कभी जो झुका पर झुका कर गया
रूह उसकी चमन में रहेगी सदा
चाहे तन का वो पिंजरा जुदा कर गया
पीढ़ियाँ उसका गौरव सदा गायेंगीं
हे अटल ना तुम्हें वो भुला पाएँगी
राजनीति के शिखरों का जब ज़िक्र हो
सबसे ऊपर तुम्हें ही खड़ा पाएँगी ```
*भारतरत्न श्री अटलबिहारी को सश्रद्ध अर्पण *
Our beautiful Monty left us on this date many seasons ago. We have other pets in our lives now which we love dearly but we've never forgotten him and he lives on in our memories. Our funny, fearless pock-rocket who ate life. We miss you and we'll see each other again one day💖💕 #thecrookeddrawer#missyou#pug#dogs#love#remembering#remember#sadness
I grew up as an inner city kid and as a free roaming country child. These contrasts shaped me into the urban nymph I am today. 🧚🏻♂️ Back when I was living in the city I was often looked after by a family that owned a movie theater and for obvious resons they worked during afternoons and evenings. When at the theater I was allowed to help out when they were selling tickets and to show people to their seats. I got to do some cleaning up and to stock up on candy and toilet paper. My treat was free access to spend time with the projectionist and to sit on his stool and watch movies and learning about life and how to operate the heart of the movie theater. The theater is now long gone and a few stubborn independent theaters are struggling to survive in the shadows of multinational corporations. But the memories, the sounds and the smells, are not lost. 🌱🌸🙏
