A place to be ...

Summer time by the river in our meadow

Down by the river and the little brick bridge

A few hay bales and wooden pallets ~  the riverside jetty

In true Swallows and Amazons fashion, our days spent in the meadow in summertime consist of creating, fixing, and adventuring. Time stands still and down by the meandering river, under the trees in the water meadow ... everything that is good, safe and precious exists, and all of the troubling, frantic struggles of the big wide world seem so very far away.

Inside the gate, the pace of life is calmer, steadier and less overwhelming. I feel blessed everyday to have such a special place as this to restore imagination and courage.
 If ever I need a little extra boost ... I know where to go.
