Some things are just perfect aren’t they? Not in a showy kind of way. But just perfectly done or perfect in their very nature.Let’s start with perfectly done. The latest 3 of our Community Land Trust Houses to be finished in Granby 4 Streets.
It would be fair to say more than a few of us have poured our hearts and souls into recovering and restoring these long empty houses.
Even more than the previous 5 years in Granby, working so carefully on the details of these 3 houses has returned me to the central core of my whole life. The human right of a decent place to live that is truly affordable, and my determination to do everything I can to help that to happen for as many people as I can.
I’ll tell you about my idea soon.
Meanwhile let’s go for a walk. Because none of us can or should work all the time. And because, well, the spring is perfect. And it happens whether we notice it or not. So let’s notice.
The particular walk is through ancient woodland over near the Dee shore of the Wirral. But it could be the lanes and pathways near wherever you are if you’d walk along them slowly enough to see what’s there, so perfectly right now.
This walk will be silent rather than botanic. There will be many wildflowers, lots of blossoming blackthorn, a bee, a frog, tiny lilac, early bluebells, pollen on willow – and there’ll be Sarah. Who walked with me today as we have walked together these many years now. Let’s go. Quietly perfect. One day in springtime 2016.
