Driving home through the countryside yesterday (14/05/16) I was struck by the sense of open space given by this view, especially after a week of working indoors. The scent, which I sadly can’t give you, only added to the effect. The lone tree (you can just see the top of it in this photo) also seemed symbolic; beauty in solitude is not loneliness, but a stimulus towards positive reflection.It's kind to share!
When visiting relatives in Northumberland in the summer of 2014, I would sometimes make my way into this nearby field, so that I could pick up a mobile signal! But here, the real benefit to the psyche was the true quietness and solitude. It was truly a perfect background for a few moments’ reflection, before checking for messages. The only occasional exception that comes to mind was the sound of gently falling rain – which I didn’t mind at all.It's kind to share!
