3 years! That must be a record, even for me. I think part of the problem with breaking the silence is that the longer you leave it, the harder it gets to say something. Then, when someone asks "so, what's new with you?" you wonder how to answer. Well, I do, at least.
Not written here in.. ooh.. a long time, but just wanted to leave this here:
"For if you suffer your people to be ill-educated, and their manners to be corrupted from their infancy, and then punish them for those crimes to which their first education disposed them, what else is to be concluded from this, but that you first make thieves and then punish them. " - Thomas More
The quote above was written in the 16th century. Seems quite appropriate today. (Tassja showed me it, and we were both keen to put it in view).
Like the look on little Nathans face when he met the sea for the first time, a few weeks ago. Looking down at our feet to see the water, and looking for its end. Sheer wonder and delight at not finding it and realising the size of this very wavy bath!
Grateful for this moment, and for the one where he shared the sand he was eating...
Tassja, J and Nathan live in domestic bliss, in South Wales. They share their house with some plants, lots of musical instruments and too much lego. They can often be found hanging around in remote places, talking to the trees...
