You may have noticed that I have been a little quiet on here lately. Well you see summer kind of does this to me, it makes me retreat to a safe, shady place. Being fair haired and even fairer skinned I tend to struggle with the intense sunlight and close air. I have found that feeling reflected in other parts of my life too. Every time I hop online I see something that hurts, a statistic or a quote that I'm just too sensitive for. It's not a bad thing, as a matter of fact I am quite glad of my empathetic ways, I would never wish to see anything without depth but it means I need to take care of myself. I'm sure many of you do the same? So I have stepped back from social media whilst the sun shines so brightly. I've filled journals with thoughts, swam in the calm rivers around my home, lifted my head to witness foxes skirting the breezeless hedgerows and found comfort in cool evening walks. Nature always holds my hand through it all, when I am happily skipping or even when I am dragging my feet and folding my arms in a strop. Yesterday she taught me that there are always edges that feel hard and uncertain but take a closer look and you will find the point that blurs and merges. I found this lesson in a bumblebee on a blackberry bush, summer and autumn together for the briefest of moments before the scales tip and we are once more out of intensity and into abundance.
Much love and magic xxx
