"He showed me something small, no bigger than a hazelnut,...
I thought: What can this be? I was amazed that it could last,...I thought because of its littleness, it would suddenly have fallen into nothing. ,...
It lasts and always will, because God loves it; and thus everything has being through the love of God."

I don't suppose anybody has missed me but I've had a break from the blog.
Life has been a bit up and down,
and so have I ,
so today walking around my beloved park
and re-visiting the trees which are such familiar friends
I saw yet again how much we have in common.
I know what it feels like
to be all twisted out of shape
and find it hard to get moving,
To feel heavy footed
More than a bit cut up.
Hacked off even.
Then again there are times when I feel slender,
(notice I said FEEL slender),
and sinuous, and ready to be a dragon lady if need be.
And of course
I still have hubby
by my side
rugged as ever
and with a
little spring time buttonhole
in his lapel.
Need I add I'm still
barking mad just as I was before I took the break.
