A Magazine Article for You

We have been working in the garden all day and my camera has been left untouched but the garden looks a lot better – hedges trimmed, slabs swept, last pots planted up and rubbish all taken to the dump.  Instead of my photos, here today is the article that appeared in the May edition of Cornwall Today about our production ‘Until the Day Break’. Click on any photo to make the writing clearer.

In Print, Violets and Sunset

This morning I found the May issue of Cornwall Today in the shop and our project has a wonderful six page write up from Kirstie Newton with fabulous photos taken by Sally Adams.

The article about our project

I spent another couple of happy hours in the Cornish Studies library today finding more images for our exhibition and our programme – all very exciting and this evening we went up to St Agnes Beacon for a quiet walk together, no-one else around and found some peace.

St Euny, Yellow and A Poem

This morning we walked the Churchyard again, this time with the photographer for Cornwall Today, a local magazine where our project is to be featured in the May edition.  Every journey into the Churchyard is a revelation – more stones discovered and different Spring flowers in bloom. Today it is Celandines, Primroses and Daffodils.

This beautiful poem by Linda Gregg is most appropriate for today.
In Praise of Spring – Linda Gregg
 
The day is taken by each thing and grows complete.
I go out and come in and go out again,
confused by a beauty that knows nothing of delay,
rushing like fire. All things move faster
than time and make a stillness thereby. My mind
leans back and smiles, having nothing to say.
Even at night I go out with a light and look
at the growing. I kneel and look at one thing
at a time. A white spider on a peony bud.
I have nothing to give, and make a poor servant,
but I can praise the spring. Praise this wildness
that does not heed the hour. The doe that does not
stop at dark but continues to grow all night long.
The beauty in every degree of flourishing. Violets
lift to the rain and the brook gets louder than ever.
The old German farmer is asleep and the flowers go on
opening. There are stars. Mint grows high. Leaves
bend in the sunlight as the rain continues to fall.

Graveyard Stomp, Yellow Lane and White Primroses

Our project, Until the day Break, stories from the graveyard, moves on apace. On Sunday we had the most amazing afternoon with people who came to find out more and to volunteer as actors, makers, helpers and more and goodness, there was some talent in the room. It was wonderful to hear our stories being brought to life.  This morning Sue and I stomped around St Euny Graveyard with a journalist, Kirstie,  from the magazine Cornwall Today. We told her about the project and about our excitement that it is coming together. She is going to write an article about it all for the May edition.

One of our Perthi Kov crew just happened to be riding by and came up the lane to meet us all.

After that windblown adventure, I went for lunch with some lovely friends. I just had to stop on one of the lanes to take this photo to show you the daffodils. There was no traffic about!

In lovely Sue-next-door’s garden there are some very pretty white Primroses.

New Book, Garden Food and Little Legs

1    A good friend from choir writes for Cornwall Today about lovely walks in Cornwall and she has just had a book published! I bought my copy this morning after the Suitcases rehearsal and Sue autographed it for me. Now we have to go on all the walks! That’s our next challenge.
