Sky watching. I've done a lot of that. In fact I always do. There is more magic in light than in anything I feel.
January has gifted me with lavender sweets, celandines in bloom, a tear shed or two over War horse, falling into heather and the highlands by candlelight via the pages of my book, answering a song thrush that definitely spoke to me! Beautiful new music, browsing in bookshops, sweet incense and warm spicy soup, a meteorite so ancient my mind boggled and of course the prettiest thing of January, snowdrops.
Thus have been my days. Simple days.
In between I've been painting. This one, a sketch from last year has been on the list for a long time. And with the muse deciding it's rest time, it's taking longer than anticipated. But, we'll get there. ;)
I'll leave you with a clip of War Horse. Do go and see, a beautiful book an amazing theatre production (which I've yet to see but so want to) and now magical movie and part of it filmed here in Wiltshire just a few miles away at Castle Combe.
