It isn’t just the theatre that does this, but when we feel it is necessary, we hide our authentic self and use masks of what others want us to be. Some feel they have to mask up all the time. Others feel there’s no time like the present to be who they really are and tell it like they see it. There’s middle ground in all things, but when the masks break…
Do not disturb an ancient hawthorn,
Sweet branches nor the root,
Respect as like as mourn,
Tread gently with your boot.
Take extra special care,
No spade dug, nothing shoved,
As might be laying there,
Once buried, once lost, a precious one beloved.

I’ve found gardening with nature🌿connects me happily to the Earth and the other creatures🐾 upon it. Making things for the home, mending♻ crafting and living a frugal life is all part of self kindness. Having lived thus far, I seem to have gleaned some pretty amazing things I’m happy to share. Therefore, I’m writing and will start to 📖 self publish. This top blog post is sticky and therefore will appear above more recent posts.
