Fathers, Brine and L R Knost

It was on this day in 2004 that my lovely Dad died and he has been in my mind and my heart more than usual today. The following cutting was found by my Mum many, many years ago and clearly made her think of her Father, my Grandfather, The Rev W R Richards, whom I knew for only a couple of years when we lived in the Vicarage in Cockerham, Lancashire with him and my Granny.dscn9591

If only – my lovely Dad was a very wise man.

The turkey is sitting in the brine I made yesterday. Isn’t it a beautiful colour?dscn9580

These words from L R Knost touched me.peace

Peace, Tree Festival and A Wild Sea

What a delightful evening of words and music, a shared meal and friendship at The Mylor Mix last night with an emphasis on working for Peace in whatever way we can.

We were in Falmouth for a good friend’s birthday lunch today with wild winds and seas and discovered in the gardens of the Princess Pavilions, the trees all ready for the Christmas Tree festival later this evening.The labels tell you which community group made the decorations, all on the theme of Cinderella.

World Peace Day, One Day One Choir and Love

Today twenty Cornish choirs have been singing outside Truro Cathedral or in the nearby Methodist Church in an event which spanned eight hours. To quote one of my lovely singing buddies, Jan,  “What a truly magical, uplifting, awe inspiring, heart wrenching, happy, wonderful day spent in Truro with friends from everywhere celebrating World Peace Day! How we all need to smile, send our love and peace to all our brothers and sisters and stop this nastiness, unrest and hatred!
I am going to try and be nice to everyone !”

A huge Thank you to Paul for the enormous amount of organisation that must have gone on to make this such a smooth running, successful and satisfyingly moving day.

Singing for Peace, Steam Train and Raindrops

Tomorrow my choirs are to be part of a world event – One Day One Choir, A Global Project for Peace. I am telling you about it today so that you can find out if you, too, can join some singing somewhere in the world and be a part of this amazing day. http://www.onedayonechoir.org/    Our day is being organised by Paul Haines about whom I have written before while he was on his Pilgrimage for Peace – click here to read more about that adventure and to find other links.

We heard that a steam train was coming by this morning so joined several neighbours to hang out over the bridge to watch the Cathedrals Express race through – and it did, smothering us all in smoke and steam and evoking memories of our childhoods. For those who would like to know such detail, it was LMS Princess Class 4-6-2 no 46201 Princess Elizabeth.

We pulled our first leeks today and I loved how the raindrops were still hanging on to virtually vertical leaves.

Be Brave, Day Lily and Love For Our World

Be the kind of person

Thank you for those words, Nikita Gill.

The Day Lilies are very lovely, a new one every day.DSCN3308

There are terrible acts of violence happening all over the world and today it has all come a little nearer to home as we have family in Munich. We have heard that most of them are safe and await news of the others. (Just heard that they are safe too.)  My heart hurts every time we hear of such attacks and hear the news from war torn areas and of the plight of the refugees. We need more love in our world. I try to be the kind of person who spreads love. Take care, all my dear Readers.

Seeds, Eggs and Peace

We bought our first seeds today. I love Night Scented Stocks. Their flowers are quite insignificant in the daytime but the scent at night is glorious! IMG_9530This time of year we sometimes treat ourselves to mini eggs!

I have posted this poem before and today is another day when it is needed. My heart goes out to all those affected in Brussels. We were very relieved to hear from our nephew who lives and works in that city.

Perfect View, Silver Linings and Peace

We went for coffee with a very good friend this morning, an oasis of calm in the busy-ness of family life and it was delightful. This is the beautiful view we were treated to.

We were in Truro today for D to do some last minute shopping for his family before he leaves tomorrow. Browsing in the bookshop, I found two new Poetry books. Expect many more poems this year!

And one more thought for the New Year………

Let There Be World Peace
