But for us, the parents, there were also moments of sustenance, relaxation and revival. Lazy breakfasts. Newspapers and coffee. Evenings of treats and great conversations. Wine... Tiree art galleries (briefly! And thank you so much to Colin at Blue Beyond for providing the boys with absorbing lengths of bubblewrap to pop! And Dorinda Johnston for having the great wisdom to site her studio just by the beach, with its' harbour and old boats - perfect! ) We came back with quite a few ceramic goodies...But above all, the beauty of Britain, in all its variety and richness; from a Scottish island, and a Somerset wood, to a Mersyside beach or a Buckinghamshire manor house, leaves impressions that will nourish us in the days ahead.
" i thank You God for most this amazing
day for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a true blue dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes"
