Deep Thoughts

Tomorrow, Friday 25th, we're driving down to Cornwall for a week, to recharge our batteries. I'm hoping to get some writing done somewhere along the way, so the laptop will be coming too. If I can get access to the internet, I might even post now and then.

Anyhow, I'll leave you with this wonderful quote from Speckly-Woo! As we were returning home from a walk to our village shop, yesterday, she noticed the long grasses growing on some nearby common-land. She paused for a moment, and then declared, "I like tall grass, but not deep water." 

Oh for the mind of a child.

  2. A good one from Speckly Woo. Have a wonderful time in Cornwall. I look forward to some great photos and words.

  3. I loved Speckly Woo's comment...

    I wonder if when you are a child all things are measured against your own height...some feel good, some dangerous....

    Have a peaceful break

    Happy days

    I love Speckly Woo's wisdom.
