The tent of thought where I shelter

Do your thoughts shelter you or make you almost homeless from yourself?
May your thoughts (and mine) be kind and sheltering. May they be gentle like candlelight rather than harsh like neon light.

"I place on the altar of the morning:
The quiet loyalty of breath,
The tent of thought where I shelter,
And all beauty drawn to the eye"

lines taken from
A Morning Offering by John O'Donohue.

There is great drying out

This weather this week. Mornings of blue skies and sunshine and early walks, hanging clothes out to dry - fresh breezes no rain. Evening walks also with the lengthening days, busy birds, robins hopping a bit closer each day, bringing the washing in, carrying scents of sun and wind.

So delicate and beautiful, many many stitches like lots of little brush strokes. Thank you L!
