Text 23 Jul Creative Sabbatical

Chamerande, France (source unknown)

Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colours.

Terry Pratchett

The beauty of the natural world lies in the details

Natalie Angier

Anyone who regularly reads this blog or is acquainted with me on Twitterwill know how much I love nature and all the tiny treasures to be found near and far in the wild world. I am daily awed by the incredible beauty of creation and can easily become lost in wonder at the intricate architecture of a spider’s web or the delicately…
