The Big Sky

January 19th, 2010 Posted in Books

The snow and ice we have suffered since mid-December trapped me in my house – I only got out to cross the road to the village shop with extreme care. I did not venture any fiurther – I had no need.  If I had attempted to do so , and fallen, I could have become a liability to other people. So I stayed put.

Yesterday my eldest daughter was with me and we went to a fine view from the edge of the North York Moors. The thing that impressed me, because of the narrowness of my recent confinement, was the BIG SKY. The space, the vastness, were almost overwhelming. The power generated was so palpable that it felt as if a new  world was coming alive all round.  I’m sure it was heralding the coming of Spring and that the traumas of recent weeks were being pushed into the background.

I wish that could be true for the sufferers in Haiti. May their BIG SKY  bring  hope and comfort.

    Here we still have a bit of snow at the sides of the road and you know what they say–we have to have more to take that away!!!!But yes it is mid Jan and spring must be round the corner. For me getting out again was seeing the green. Being an artist I was fed up of just tones of grey. Judith
