The Wind Sailor’s Wife

Yesterday – dressed a little more like a land girl than I’d intended – I went to the beach with Sarah. Since the day was gloomy and brooding we headed to Kynance, where the shore was filled with sea foam and the surf was crashing up to the cliff tops. I think for both of us, Cornwall is especially beautiful at this time of year; often misty and magical, like living mythology. Free of bright buckets and spades, beaches are wild and unruly again; filled with only the sound of the sea and delicately embellished with feathers, shells and wind sailors. 


Time with Sarah is always therapeutic for me. My dominant character-trait, my most natural way of functioning is reflection. Taking in the world; observing, internalizing and then relaying it in writing or ideally spoken word to another keen world watcher. At my core I want to understand how the life works, how best to live and most beautifully and graciously spend my time here. In essence I have an acute appetite for insight, understanding and wisdom.

And well, I’m not entirely sure why I’m sharing this here. Before now I’ve pondered detailing more personal thoughts and reflections on my blog – at least something more in-depth than the simple documentation of everyday adventures.  I’ve also thought about doing more “getting to know me” sort of posts – but do you guy’s really want a list of 50 facts about me? Either way I’d really love to know what your thoughts are. I’d love to know why you read my blog. What is it that interests you? Why do you come back? What would you like to see more or less of? Anything you particularly like or don’t like? Any comments that can let me in on what it’s like to read my blog, would really be appreciated!

    I love how all of your posts really have the same photographic style, even if you didn't see which blog had posted something, I reckon I could pick out which ones were yours. That's such a clever and brilliant form of branding without being specifically contrived. It would be good to gain more insight into your life, I can only imagine it would be really interesting!

    I love your dreamy mythical and magical photos that remind me of cornish folk tales. I also love your posts on sustainable living and I think I would like Q&A's I always find it fascinating learning random things about other people!

    We all know how much I love you already: the photos and the way you talk about life 😉 definitely would love to have a nosey into your life… would love to read more about what sort of things you get up to as a 'normal' person – eating! music! tv! 😀
