It’s amazing what nature leaves at your feet. I was walking @fenleytucker this morning and had come across lots of debris from last night’s winds. This broken chunk of branch was so pretty that I had to pick it up and take photographs of it. The textures and colour palette, love!
I had thought the brown bits were lichen that I’d regularlt find on mossy branches, but upon closer inspection, they’re fungi with a fine peach fuzz to them. Oh how I love nature and how it delights
Two lovely souls I had the privilege to meet randomly on a forest trail.
Once in a while I will remember to serendipitously take a couple of hours off when the idea all of a sudden strikes me. It’s on these adventures I’ll come across people or situations that are beautiful in their natural surroundings. This day back in August, I did just that and ended up meeting Michael and his lovely Great Pyrenees, Attica. We chatted and found ourselves talking philosophy and discovering we were of like minds despite being in different stages of life. We shared our life insights and learnings, while Michael ask many great questions that facilitated great understanding and connection. We both parted 20 mins later feeling enlightened and connected. It’s these moment I cherish experiencing, made even better when I happen to have my camera with me, to capture the visceral energy of the moment

A wonderful reminder to ourselves, esp for those who always seek to explore, discover and cultivate our inner beings. Such challenging work it can be… Oh but the rewards keeps on giving in small ways everyday, even if we don’t always notice it. Here’s to loving ourselves enough to cherish and grow despite the hardships. Love to you all
Good night New York & Brooklyn 🌃😴 It’s been one chilly day. Temps started off at 12C this morning and have dropped to -2C as of this moment. Then add in windy conditions, now more like a bit of a windstorm with our hotel window and door rattling. Brr!
Today’s tour by moi, Kai, took @cruseruser to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Cloisters, followed by Times Square, St Patrick’s Cathedral, then Rockefeller Center. The winds really was chilling as it’s damp winds off the water. We decided to head back to the hotel around 8:30p and with D train delays, made it back in an hour. At least it was warm inside the subway station. Time for rest for the tender tootsies for another day of exploring and showing D around.
Such a bonny day for a ride on the ferry ❤️ Def helps my distract emotions right now. Just left the Sunshine coast where my little Fenley Tucker will stay in living care with dear friends of mine, while I head home to prep for leaving for NYC tonight, for 5 days. It’s a bit amazing to feel just how much I already love his little being, my heart aches, knowing he’ll be stressed for a day or two as I’m missing from his environment while he’s struggles with separation anxiety still
Would you be surprised as I was to see this blooming on you morning walk this week?
Such a delight to see blossoms blooming in November, and a camellias at that! We’ve been having more traditional temps here in October and November, where we’ve gotten frost, thus surprising to see these blooming away.
My curiosity had me looking diligently at this row of camellias half a block long, and to my delight I found one tag that the landscapers missed removing when potting it, it’s called Winter Star Camellia! Now I want to get one potted on my balcony
