Pansy Surprise, A Visit and Generosity

27 Sep

Last night, as the lovely Mr S was locking up, he found a bag on the doorstep. I contained a very pretty purple and white Pansy plant in a container. There was no message or card but it has to be from someone who knows me well, the colours being the Suffragette colours. If you read this, lovely friend, please give me a call!

3   A young friend has been the instigator of a Charity project to collect items for the refugees in Calais – Falmouth’s Donation Day Drop-off for Calais. We went over this afternoon with our contribution to find J and her friend almost overwhelmed by the fabulous generosity of the people in Falmouth and around. People had been arriving all day with tins and packets of food as well as warm coats, hats and scarves for the increasingly cold weather and many other items. Volunteers have been helping to sort and pack things into boxes and it just shows how lovely so many people are. I am a great believer in the fact that he humanity of humans will always shine through.

    There is an underlying theme in all three images and attached stores -the rwards of friendship, the rewards of exuberant discovery, the rewards of compassion……..and then………

    “I am a great believer in the fact that the humanity of humans will always shine through”…..and what great mind said this?. Why it was you. That’s who. What ‘roots’ these words of yours plant. This should be chanted over and over. That it may echo off mountains, crawl through jungles, to ride the back of breezes across oceans and seas. Till these sediments find a permanent home.

      I love the way you have appreciated my words and have written me a poem to celebrate. The lines may not be there but the poet’s words are. Thank you. 🙂

    Like your granddaughter, I had to have a closer peek at Mr. Hare. He’s very handsome indeed. What a wonderful response to the refugee appeal! 🙂
