The Cranes return.
I touched on this subject a while ago, but at the time I was obliged to use a stock photo.
I have just been summoned by the sound of the Cranes flying overhead. An incredible sound that made me rush outside (this time with my camera) as they swirled around re-fixing their bearings. After circling for a few seconds (amongst terrific noise) they headed due north; as they should.
I hope the picture above gives some idea of the spectacle. The wonderful accompanying sound I can do nothing about.
The difference between an optimist and a pessimist, is that the optimist enjoys himself whilst waiting for the inevitable! I AM that optimist!
This is a daily, optimistic, 'photos and comments' blog. I make no judgements (only occasionally), just notes. If you wish to comment in any way at all, please feel free. Everything and everyone (except the obdurate and dictatorial) is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 50 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live between an ancient cottage in a tiny village in perfectly tranquil French countryside, and a bijou townhouse in Brighton UK. In France we have plenty of fruit trees, all situated amongst a view that takes the breath away, in the UK we have a handkerchief sized patio. We also have a Border Collie called Billy. I try to treat our planet with respect, and encourage others to do likewise (without preaching).
Contentment is a glass of red, a plate of charcuterie, and a slice of good country bread. Perfect!
