Every now and then, I’m going to post some photographic magic here.
Photos by a friend of mine with a talent for catching beauty in her camera.
A little window for us to look through.
These posts will be called, ‘How to Just Be’. Their purpose is to give you something to pause and wonder over. Something beautiful. Something to inspire you to take a deep breath. A moment to drink in the view, even if you can’t get out to see these wonders. Something to help you to just ‘Be’ in the moment.

Here is an extract from a the writing of a poet I have always loved. I read another of her poems at my Mum’s funeral. That one was “Remember Me”.
This poetry extract comes from
by Christian Rosetti
- I never watch the scatter’d fire
- Of stars, or sun’s far-trailing train,
- But all my heart is one desire,
- And all in vain:
- For I am bound with fleshly bands,
- Joy, beauty, lie beyond my scope;
- I strain my heart, I stretch my hands,
- And catch at hope.
|“De Profundis” is reprinted from Poems. Christina Rossetti. London: Macmillan, 1891.|
