Weather, St Euny Churchyard and The Diaspora

08 Feb

Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather. -John Ruskin, author, art critic, and social reformer (8 Feb 1819-1900)

  It certainly was a bracing afternoon as we walked around St Euny Churchyard this afternoon. Come for a walk with us and imagine the wind of Storm Imogen howling through the trees and between the stones. It is fascinating to see how the Cornish miners of tin and copper, who went all over the world to share their skills, to Mexico and America and Cuba, came home to Cornwall.

    Haven’t been to St Euny for a while but we were on the other side of the river last Thursday, looking over at St Euny! One of my favourite spots – and Rosamund Pilcher’s favourite walk! XX

    Great pictures. They all died so young… It is lovely to have a stone for those babies too.

    John Ruskin was right, the goal in life is to take what you are given and find a way to enjoy it.
