It’s helpful just to stare at this lovely photo this evening! ‘Mind over matter’ – cool!
Awake or asleep?

Awake or asleep? One of the chief combined effects of Covid-19 and a UK heatwave seems to be that I’m dropping off to sleep a lot – which is probably a good and health-giving thing. But it plays havoc with reading and with the typing of messages with family and friends. Half a paragraph and I’m away to the land of nod again! I’m grateful for the garden and the shade of my Japanese Acer today. Falling asleep in a garden chair outside somehow feels healthier than other options!
Southern England and my buddies in the US are presently dealing with 95-100 (35-37C) degrees heat. I wish them lemonade and a cool breeze to further facilitate happy days and restful nights.
Up here on the North East coast in Edinburgh it’s mild but somewhat cooler, and the beach at Portobello on the quiet side. Nonetheless, I’m spellbound by skyscape and sea – like life itself, sometimes coloured by storm roar and wonder, sometimes calmed by tranquility, soft sound and peace.
I’m endlessly enthralled by clouds – their cyclical purpose and provision, the things we believe we see in them, their seemingly ethereal presence that, presumably, also carry huge weight? I’m off out for lunch … hoping I might bump into someone today, or some day anyway, who knows how much a small cloud might weigh, and who can tell me how they know!
