Our Forest

Thank you so much for all the comments & emails, you really have no idea how much i needed that,
how much i needed to hear that we are not the only ones who have bad days.
It’s hard to remember sometimes, you know?
I want to share our forest with you, because it’s the place we go to when we need to get away, when we need to be alone yet together, if that makes sense.

Our forest is a really magical place. It’s up high on a cliff top, so when you are at edge of the forest it overlooks the sea.

This place here, it’s one of my favourites, these tree stumps in a circle,

they are so perfect for sitting, thinking, climbing, balancing or just touching them.


Every day there is something new, I’m not sure where all the things come from, but I’m reasonably sure it’s not made by people.

These are Emi’s favourites, they’ve been here a while:


This was not here yesterday:

And these are new, too. There were many of them, all up high in the trees, some in little tree-houses:

What I love most about our forest is how safe it feels, how there is always somewhere to sit down and think, but also to run and play and be wild.


There is another special little place in our forest , but I will have to share that tomorrow,
because now it’s time to light some candles, put the clary sage on the oil burner and snuggle up with Ezi ,
I’m hoping tonight he will fall asleep before 3 am.
I’m having some contractions, but I don’t think they will turn into anything lasting, but you never know.
We still have not decided on a name, though we have really given up on that, we will just have to wait till this baby lets us know.

I’m wishing you a lovely weekend,
& again, thank you, thank you, thank you.

    We’re taking refuge in the woods too, very healing energy.

    Oh, it looks like heaven! My two year old would love to look for gnomes there (it’s his latest fascination)
