Sunday Morning

I love the natural world and I never ceased to see it. The beauty of trees and fields, of hills and streams, of the changing colours, of the small creatures so busy and occupied. My long hours walking or sitting in the field with my back against the wall, watching the clouds and the weather, allowed me some steadiness. It was because I knew all this would be there when I was not that I thought I could go. The world was beautiful. I was a speck in it.

  4. I’m quite a fan of Jeanette… For all those who would like to get to know her a bit more, I’d like to lead you to her website and her books. But first pls read her ‘about’ site, one of the most detailled and informative you can find: https://www.jeanettewinterson.com/author
    I started with her first book and took it from there. No regrets!
