The LiveWires cooked their own breakfast this morning – chocolate croissants.
Our young activists spent the morning making placards for the Climate Emergency School Strike in Truro today.
On the Demo!
I discovered a wonderful shop in Hayle today, especially for people like me who love to make. The sign outside first caught my eye, then the shop itself and inside was a treasure trove with rainbows of colour everywhere. I shall be back.
I was lucky today to see a working replica of Trevithick’s Puffing Devil.It was Truro’s City of Lights celebration tonight and the lanterns were better than ever. The theme was story characters. I wonder how many you recognise.
Singing in the Zed Shed in Penryn this morning with The Suitcase Singers, I was able to zoom in on the lovely Mr S who was working on our boat in nearby Freeman’s Wharf while I was having fun!
There is a beautiful lone rose on our climber, really delicate with the sun shining through.
We visited Truro Cathedral today to see the March of Hope for Peace stand. It wasn’t inside but as we were walking through we heard The Celtic Benediction being said, a beautiful wish for peace. Both my choirs sing a version of this and it is very lovely.
Deep peace of the running wave to you,
Deep peace of the flowing air to you,
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you,
Deep peace of the shining stars to you,
And deep peace of the sun of peace to you.
Inside Truro Cathedral.
Waiting for the lovely Mr S and Nick the Sailman to take down the Genoa for repair of the sacrificial strip, I took photos of the reflections in the wet mud as the tide was out. Even mud can be beautiful!
We went into Truro in the afternoon and had a cup of coffee in the art shop where the supplies for artists are just wonderful. I love the colours of these pastels and still have a yen for creating a scene in water colours. My sister is an artist, my Dad also, as well as being a novelist and I still wish I had this talent. Maybe I just have to try to know if I can or not.
