About me

This is the real secret of life — to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realise it is play. The only thing that is ultimately real about your journey is the step that you are taking at this moment. That’s all there ever is. I’m here to tell you that the path to peace is right there, when you want to get away. When you are present, you can allow the mind to be as it is without getting entangled in it. If you miss the present moment, you miss your appointment with life. That is very serious!

Winter at the pond

W&N watercolour on Bockingford 300gsm

Winter is almost nothing but a memory and now spring is fully upon us, with the first spring rains having fallen over the past couple of days. But together with that came freezing temperatures as low as 12℃ yesterday. But soon all the cold will be in the past and I look forward to my wildlife pond once again bursting with summer colour.



  1. Nice!! I'm looking forward too! And I'm sure your pond will be full of stories and inspiration again!

    1. Thanks Liz! All will be well if I can just get that leak sealed!

  2. Lovely painting. ..our summer is just ending here.

    1. Thanks Carol! And the seasons, they are a changing! ♫♫♫♫ ♬♬♬
