Illustrated by Bagnall, CatherineBy Sayle, L. Jane
The book is developed from moments of intense connection with environments, landscapes and seasons, and the authors' shared understanding that simple but inspiring moments are a source of strength, a solution to the hysteria of contemporary life. The authors say: 'To be outdoors,... that is the first thing.' So, the settings of the 21 poems and 26 paintings range from gardens in Munich to the bush around Eastbourne. They pause to note birds on lamp-posts, snow-laden trees and warm pavements. The authors also say 'To connect is the last thing. It's vital, in a well-lived human life to share moments with others. We're not separate from the natural world and its sublime complexity of organic inter-relationships. Small everyday acts of connection that honour it strengthen and ground us.'Read more
