Meandering around the UK and letting go on a Monday.

This meandering round the UK seeing friends and family is delivering positive results. I’ve stopped worrying or even thinking about my kitchen which is being dismantled and rebuilt as I write….

Instead there’s time for good conversations, catching up on news, enjoying being with people I haven’t seen in a while and doing things that I wouldn’t be doing on a Monday. Today my brother Gerry and his wife Brenda have a trip planned to Chatsworth House. (A complete contrast to the travelling circus we went to yesterday) This evening the  house party increases with more conversation and interesting people.

Meanwhile, my kitchen refurbishment in Scotland continues and I am not even thinking about the possible hiccups and quandaries – should I have chosen white or almond blush as the colour for the walls –  Are the cupboards in the right places?  Is the worktop surface a good contrast?  I realise I’ve just let it all go… just let it all flow away. … I feel fantastic and I’m choosing to enjoy being in the present even more . Must practise ‘Letting Go’ more often. It’s magic.

  1. I was delighted to read your reactions to the animal parts and the children’s delight: in my young days, I would have given up the clowns and the dwarves and the gymnasts for the trapeze artists and the animals; they were the only acts which caught my imagination and fascinated me…

    I really admire the way you thought through your reactions, and totally share your view that nowadays it simply isn’t acceptable to have animal acts in the circus. The only animals which I felt seemed to want to engage with the process were the dogs and the horses, which have a much closer relationship with humans and mostly take willingly to being trained. Apart from whether they actually ENJOY being put through the capers required of them – and I actually think that the horses I used to see in the Knie Circus in Geneva, where there was a long family tradition, really seemed to be willing rather than constrained in what was for them an extension of dressage. But I always felt uncomfortable about seeing big cats, or elephants, be tamed into docility rather than left free to roam their natural habitats.

    1. Thank you for your comments Joelle. I thought it was worth writing about and hope it will stimulate other people to think and maybe comment. Iindeed the conversation is still going on
