Yarn, Yorkshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

The long hot days of summer are here, and I am  finally slowing  down to stand and stare.

this window.

So enjoying and realizing the importance of just slowing down, once in a while, to put life back in perspective.

Words taken from the poem Leisure by William Henry Davies

Lots more standing and staring to come….

Hope you are finding time to slow down and recharge your batteries. Does standing and staring do it for you too? Or do you need action all the way?

  1. I always liked that poem repeat bits of it to myself from time to time.

  2. I often stand and stare – usually half way up a steep slope, which is nothing to do with my stamina and all to do with taking in the view.

  3. Time alone does it for me. I need space and quiet solitude to think.

  4. Beautiful images….
