This weeks WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is Path…
One afternoon in early March I was feeling decidedly listless. I wandered aimlessly round the house and garden looking for inspiration, but I was uninspired. Fortunately, I don’t experience many days like this as I am a “creative” person by nature and usually there are not enough hours in a day let alone waste them moping around feeling sorry for myself! However, on this particular day I felt homesick and missed the family. Not even my beloved computer could relieve my restless spirit!
In desperation I decided the best idea was positive action! I would take my camera for a walk, escape the confines of the house and find peace and tranquillity in nature. My aim – to photograph wild flowers which I would then attempt to paint on my return home using watercolours or acrylics. I was not disappointed when arrived at the end of the path as I was rewarded by an amazing wild garden of flowers which I named “God’s Garden”
I studied the many delicate flowers such as the tiny yellow blooms which resembled daffodils growing in just grit at the edge of the cliff and wondered what they are.
Feeling refreshed and rejuvenated after several hours spent at one with nature, I returned home.
As I wandered indoors feeling totally rested and at peace with myself and the world I was immediately greeted by Mr Piglet who fired questions at me like rapid machine gun fire.
“Where on earth have you been?”
“You’ve been gone hours”
“What have we got for dinner?”
“What time’s dinner?”
“I’ve been worried about you”
“hmmm” I sighed…as I pondered “Yes, aliens abducted me and transported me to a magical place”
How do you overcome listess moments?
There are many beautiful unspoilt clifftop and country walks in the Parque Natural do Sudoeste Alentejano e Costa Vicentina on the West Coast of Portugal.
