One of those days

Which has turned out to be grey and broody. Windy and dark.
It started brightly - going out for breakfast with two great friends
(and all the tea and conversation about life and faith and relationships and art that ensued)
But it became cold and lonesome in the house. I wrapped my beloved wool shawl around my shoulders - the wool is hand-dyed, lambs-ear soft, from New Zealand (and always reminds me of Lupins and earth)

I crocheted it with simple trebles - it did not need fancy stitches - it was too beautiful to complicate.

Then I got all wound up in an essay due tomorrow - feeling pressed for time - procrastinating with practical tasks (cleaning, baking) - being generally anxious and wanting to curl up in bed like a cat.

So I decided to calm down and watch something unfold in its own time:

One of those grey days when we need a little extra inspiration;
time for friends and a little unfolding.
And I am ready to write now.
I am ready.
