Peacock

I took this shot of a Peacock whilst visiting Dartmoor Zoo this week. They are very beautiful birds. The colours of the feathers are so lovely.

Third year musings

Wow!  I can’t quite believe I’ve had this blog for three whole years now.. Its gone so fast. It started off as a place for me to write my poetry and has grown into a blog both about writing and photography. Its a privilege to be able to write poems which encourage others.To add a bit of sparkle to someone’s day.

It was a good challenge from my now brother-in-law Josh. I’m so glad I took up the challenge. Check out his website here. http://joshfox.org.uk/

I love travelling to new places for the experiences they bring and the sense of adventure. It is also good to go back to familiar places because often I see them differently after being away for a while.

I am constantly inspired by those around me who show such passion for life and adventure. Also by the nature that surrounds me. Even some little flowers clinging to life on an old stone wall.

Beauty speaks to me in so many ways, showing the majesty of God. I stand in awe at ever sunset I have the privilege of seeing.  It helps me keep a fresh perspective on life.. to hold life with open hands and the importance of giving to others. With a smile, a kind word, a poem and through my photography.

Remember a little encouragement can go a long way!

Thanks for joining me on the journey.

– Carole.

It was lovely to go on a little walk the other day with my good friend Rebecca.
