Fruity Decorations, Angel and Pockets

28 Nov

There was a delightful Christmas Market outside the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona.  I resisted most of the stalls though I loved the fruity decorations which I am going to try to make and, everywhere we go, I buy a new Angel for the Christmas tree. There was music playing around the market and one of the songs was ‘Nana Nanita’ a Spanish lullaby which both my choirs sing.

I have another lovely poem by Kim Ridgeon to share. I find this somehow evocative of childhood  and love the ideas of pockets full of secrets, beliefs, memories and fears. I don’t know who is in the photo but I do have permission to show both the poem and the accompanying photo.

    Love the fruity stall. We have a number of Christmas decorations made of (fake) fruit and pine cones. Very festive, in a natural sort of way.

    The fruity decorations look lovely as does the angel.

      They are pretty aren’t they and they smell so good of cinnamon. I’ve started drying fruit to make one myself. I’ll show you if it works! 🙂

    Another lovely post. Such gleams of light are so needed in this crazy world. The photo is of me aged 11 and my late beloved mother, Margaret. I was very soon to depart our prefab council estate in Pengegon to go to boarding school as a scholarship boy with a total bursary because of my one parent background. I spent 7 years there whilst my 3 siblings were educated in Camborne. The experience inspires some of my writing.
    Thank you so much for the inclusion of this poem.

      Thank you. I am very happy to include your work – I love what I have read so far. I wondered if the photo might be of you and am pleased to know that it is. Thank you for telling me a bit about your history. I must thank Jean for our introduction. 🙂
