A walk along the sea front at Sidmouth on the 27th December, always a great place to brush away the cobwebs and walk off Christmas excess.
Every time we walk along a beach some ancient urge disturbs us so that we find ourselves shedding shoes and garments or scavenging among seaweed and whitened timbers like the homesick refugees of a long war. ~Loren Eiseley
If we measured life in the things that almost happened, we wouldn’t get anywhere. ~ Sarah Addison Allen
Take some more tea,” the March Hare said to Alice, very earnestly. “I’ve had nothing yet,” Alice replied in an offended tone, “so I can’t take more.”
“You mean you can’t take less,” said the Hatter: “it’s very easy to take more than nothing.”
“Nobody asked your opinion,” said Alice.”
― Lewis Carroll,
The mornings are sunny but the temperatures are still low but sometimes I can drink my morning tea outside…..
The sun just touched the morning:
The morning , happy thing,
Supposed that he had come to dwell,
And life would be all spring.
~ Emily Dickinson
Some treasures in my bedroom, the little book is handmade and comes from Venice, I can’t use it it is just too beautiful !
“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson
One of my habits in the morning as soon as I get out of bed is to move the blinds and look out of the window. Today the sky was showing it’s best face, smiling and beaming out the glory of a wonderful sunrise.

‘Sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life – well, valuable, but small – and sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it, or because I haven’t been brave? So much of what I see reminds me of something I read in a book, when shouldn’t it be the other way around? I don’t really want an answer. I just want to send this cosmic question out into the void. So good night, dear void.` You’ve Got Mail
