Day 8: A spot of gardening.
Sharing this from a Facebook friend.
I saw this and just had to post it.
We fell asleep in one world, and woke up in another.
Suddenly Disney is out of magic,
Paris is no longer romantic,
New York doesn't stand up anymore,
the Chinese wall is no longer a fortress, and Mecca is empty.
Hugs and kisses suddenly become weapons, and not visiting parents & friends becomes an act of love.
Suddenly you realize that power, beauty and money are worthless, and can't get you the oxygen you're fighting for.
The world continues its life and it is beautiful. It only puts humans in cages. I think it's sending us a message:
"You are not necessary. The air, earth, water and sky without you are fine. When you come back, remember that you are my guests. Not my masters."
Hello one and all. It's Friday and we are taking a step towards the weekend, after what has been another strange week for us all in so many ways. If you are going through the virus at the moment, then I send you my love and hugs and hope that you have a speedy recovery. If you are a key worker and are struggling, I send you my strength to endure, love and hugs. In a way we will all cope with this crisis differently. What is needed right now is a lot more kindness across the world, because at the moment, this is the only story which is dominating the news and our lives.
Today, we woke up to an overcast start, but we have the promise of tropical temperatures on Sunday. One of the first things I did this morning was to go out and get rid of the ash from the fire. Now this may seem like a mundane job, but it is a job which has to be done. When out cruising, cooled ash will be dis-guarded in a hedge row or bagged and binned. On the mooring, I empty the ash pan into a bucket and allow it to cool, before putting it into an empty coal bag. Once it is full enough, I then put it into the bin. I do not put it on the garden, because it can be acidic and that will affect the Ph of the soil and may kill my plants. With that done. Mr Robin came calling. He will always come close, just so I know he is there and that he would like to be fed.
I decided today was weeding day, so having done all the usual chores on board. I took my coffee and camera out into the garden.
