All Our Life's a Circle of Growth and Achievement.
Our beautiful Black Rock hens
I love that, as we draw closer to the Winter Solstice, there is a sense of having completed a circle of creativity and exploration over the year. Now is the time to hibernate and go within ourselves to reflect and allow ourselves to feel a sense of achievement for the many things we have enjoyed in 2012.
I feel that a sense of achievement can be something seemingly very small or quite vast, and it is very personal. My daughter Frances and I have set ourselves the challenge of fostering a whippet-cross-spaniel called Cooper to help him get a happy loving permanent home. This is where one of my circles comes in. I feed the chickens who lay the eggs that we sell to buy Cooper's food. Fostering Cooper helps train him and gives valuable experience to Frances; it helps Morgan's Dog Rescue www.facebook.com/pages/Morgans-Dog-Rescue/244076885635414 by creating a space for another dog to find shelter and support. Trouble is Cooper tried to break the circle by getting a mouthful of feathers off one of the hens. However six hens a laying and I am very grateful to them for their gifts of beautiful brown eggs....and the circle goes on.
