#mindfulness and #dogwalking in #Thetford

It’s grey today, but the weather has been just lovely this week. It has allowed me to pause and really drink in life.


While the dog mooches around I have been able to stop and savour the now: the warmth of the sun on my arms, the sound of the leaves moving gently in the trees, the sight of blossom everywhere and upturned geese in the river searching for a little breakfast.

It’s all balm for the soul.

Wombling free

And as the song goes, “making good use of the things everyday folk leave behind”
Or in the case of today’s dog walk, a ball for Atom to play with and a bag for me to put it in:

It is the happier side of the nasty fly tipping in the woods behind our house.
Ah well, the dog has a new toy and our morning walk was lovely.
While I waited for Atom to finish a particular sniff, I took the time to watch the finches pottering in a tree. The RSPB website tells me they were probably siskins.
It has made my morning and reminded me once again of the importance to stop, listen and take note.
Something which works well with people as well as birds.
