"THERE IS A quiet light that shines in every heart. It draws no attention to itself though it is always secretly there. It is what illuminates our minds to see beauty, our desire to seek possibility and our hearts to love life." John O'Donohue, Benedictus (Kindle Locations 211-213)
I'm sat at the breakfast bar in my father-in-law's flat in Padstow.
Outside it's blowing a gale, the sea is in turmoil and it's set to get worse.
I have though ventured outside to walk Alfie. It was, as you'd expect during the midst of a storm, enlivening. (Alfie is lying right by my side, fast asleep. He's such a loyal dog, and I love him so much.)
I'm not sure what we'll do today, but I don't expect we'll venture far. We're off out tonight to meet up with my wife's brother and his wife, and it will be lovely to see them on their own. Normally, when we do see them, all the family is together — and that's a lot of people — and we don't get any quiet time together.
We were meant to be in Padstow for a week's holiday, but I think we'll cut it short in order to be on hand for my youngest daughter, who decided she didn't want to come with us this time. Something about a party on Sunday!( Collapse )
