Head Space


I’ve been looking for some head space, idle moments to let thoughts drift by

 Thing one 1

but such space is at a premium;   I’ve been consumed by too much ‘stuff’ this last week, it will get calmer, it will.

I’ve much to tell, Internet connection willing.

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  1. Stuff threatens to take over my interior landscape as well. Perhaps we should exchange stuffing for a couple of days? I rather like the idea of looking at the world from Thing One’s perspective.

  2. A very nice picture.

    Now, if only I could get street pigeons to look at me when I’m talking to them…

  3. I hope that you find some peaceful space for a while, it can all get a bit frantic before you realise sometimes! I love the chicken, it looks as if it knows a lot, but isn’t giving anything away 🙂

  4. Your post reminded me of ‘running around like a chicken with its head cut off’… at least in your photo, the cut off head shot is hopefully still attached 😉

  5. I know the feeling, although thankfully it doesn’t happen often nowadays! xx

  6. Definitely a very appropriate photo to get your point across. Take care…

  7. I subscribe to your blog via email and images are not displayed on my email. I tell you this because I had already read the text portion of this post and was not expecting to be facing a chicken when I clicked to see the post here. It startled me. lol!

    “Stuff” has a way of gathering like that, inside and out.

  8. Great photo. Lots of headspace there!!!!

  9. Maybe if we walked around with tiny brains and huge red combs atop our heads – people would allow us a little head space and idle moments. If you try and it works, let me know.

  10. What a fantastic image to match your words!! Really made me smile. I know just what you mean and I hope you’ve had some peaceful time since your post.
