Inspiration!

I was down on the beach by 8am this morning and had a wonderful walk with Freida. We were alone and the morning sunshine was awe inspiring. I tend to use such times for thinking . My exhibition is approaching and one of my categories is seascapes so I used the time this morning to do some planning!

Watch this space!

Meditate.
Live purely. Be quiet.
Do your work with mastery.
Like the moon, come out
from behind the clouds!

  1. Beautiful photographs. So very tranquil. Bamburgh beach, near where I live, is a haven for dog walkers early in the morning. But unfortunately, some do gooders are petitioning to stop people walking their dogs on it. Hmm.
