OOTD: Quiet Evenings Watching the Boats go by

Life isn't always about the big moments. I've spent this year learning to make the most about the little moments in between - those precious few hours after work, or before class that normally we ignore and do trivial things we've already forgotten about by the next day. I've been working on filling those 'in-between' moments with things like reading in the park, walks on the river flower hunting, or trips to the forest. I want to fill my life with beautiful quiet moments - saturating it with memory and joy so that I can never look back and say I wasted my youth. It's surprising what you can squeeze in, in those few hours after work, especially in the summer when the days are longer. I've taken to spending my breaks, sitting in the courtyard by the abbey people watching and listening to the Buskers.

Meadow flower

Hello again beautiful writing space. How are you doing today? Marvellous I hope :)
It's certainly been a busy June! No wonder it's flying past me like a flock of ducks in the summer sky.

Dragon Flies & River Dwellers

More than just Mayflies and Otters can be found on the river. There are entire beautiful communities, people that live and trade entirely from their boats and station their gardens in little secret woodlands by their moorings. I have stumbled across such places; wonderful secret places where laundry is hung in the trees and dens are made between the roots. Children leave their toys scattered across the earthy floors and run about barefoot, the same way you would see toys left around a yard. Plant pots and twinkling garden lights decorating the roofs of the barges, makeshift balconies and old bicycles oddly but lovingly placed in the heart of this kingdoms old and peaceful world. 
Like roads, people can travel around the rivers networks snaking around this leafy isle but never leaving their own private world, a world that is invisible and unseen by so many, the separate world that exists only on the river. 
Fisherman, travellers, musicians, storytellers... they all have voices and tales for the camp fire about their mysterious and beloved rivers.
