T.i.c.k. t.o.c.k.

For the first time this year I have slipped in to the zone of a ‘Slow Watch’.

My stay here may only last 24 hours 😉 but I intend to luxuriate in every nano second of it :

doors wide open to gentle breeze, soft sun, and cicada song;

table full- laden with gifts from friends and garden;

Gifts of garden and friends

Gifts from garden and friends

the noisy, bustling,  tilted world  of recent weeks,




restrained, then replaced by sweet moments

Sweet bites

Sweet bites

of the rightful order of a steady, subtlety silent, tick by tock.

The Rightful Order

The Rightful Order

With thanks to Nath at Beautycalypse for introducing me to the reframing of time via the Slow Watch.

    This is so beautifully written and the picture your produce makes is a joy. I don’t know about this slow time concept but it is obviously working for your benefit. I’m hiding my face in shame that I dared to give you advice about writing.😔

      No need for shame. I am in a state of brain fog, partly brought on by a dreadful head cold. I am actually feeling, thanks to your blog, that I may try to write a post which has been hidden in my fog for quite a while. We shall see. Or I may just go and declutter some of my physical files. That is often therapeutic too.

          I am not sure I have found the hidden gem but my new blog post should be up soonish, if, in my sinus-stuffed state, I have managed to press all the right buttons.

      Z! I am so pleased you had an internet connection which allowed you to visit my YouTube channel. Slow time is a lovely experience but not when one is trying to use the internet! 😀
