Perfect

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.DSC02157Let’s start with perfectly done. The latest 3 of our Community Land Trust Houses to be finished in Granby 4 Streets.

Perfect.

Perfect.

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.

And now they're ready.

And now they’re ready.

Ready to be homes again.

Ready to be homes again.

Being part of the site team on these since September has been one of the joys of my life.

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.

Working on these houses has led me to what I will now do next.

These three perfect houses in Granby.

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.DSC02100 DSC02101 DSC02102 DSC02103 DSC02104 DSC02105 DSC02108 DSC02109 DSC02111 DSC02115 DSC02116 DSC02117 DSC02118 DSC02119 DSC02120 DSC02124 DSC02125 DSC02127 DSC02129 DSC02131 DSC02132 DSC02134 DSC02135 DSC02138 DSC02140 DSC02141 DSC02142 DSC02143 DSC02144 DSC02146 DSC02148 DSC02149 DSC02153 DSC02156 DSC02157 DSC02158 DSC02159 DSC02164 DSC02165 DSC02166Quietly perfect.
