A New Story

Time…..is an elusive thing. Three years full of long moments vanish in the blink of an eye. As I grow older I grow interested in fewer and fewer things, but those that remain become deeper and richer and more marvellous. Time becomes more precious. “This day will not come again. Each minute is worth a priceless gem”. (Takuan Soho)

I like the idea of a blog, an opportunity to reflect and to share. But in truth my head has always been more full of pictures than words and I reflect far more easily with pencil strokes and colour than with a keyboard.

Then our daughter was born and my world was full of her.

Days and nights full of wondrous tiredness and new eyes watch it all. She watches me too and I wonder what she sees, and my reflections also grow deeper and richer and more marvellous.

After three years absence I still like the idea of a blog though I suspect I will always draw more than I write. However I realise that her story will outlast my own and if for no other reason it will be nice to leave words as well as pictures, though neither will be enough to express my love for her.
