More on Songs of the Birch

Started a new painting today,

back to my depictions of the beautiful sacred birch trees.

This one came spilling out,

end of summer and into the autumn

In each painting I use different songs and different words of Mr Wright’s songs are revealed on the birch trees.

In this one I wanted more sky and always find it difficult once you start working through the ticket.

Close up below

I feel like I’m coming to the end of this series, with just a few pages of Mr Wright’s music book left.

One thing that struck me though I wondered how it would look in black and white, so maybe I have to try that.

Here are some of the original

Pages from the book

Visiting Les Potirons -Foxgloves

Foxgloves taken at St James Church, Exeter at celebration days before our trip to Jersey. We went to a 50th year celebration for our dear friends and I saw these beautiful foxgloves in the church yard and had to get some close ups and try to study them.

The next day we’re off to revisit the island of Jersey near the coast of France, little did I know we were going to a farm called Les Potirons

We had a delightful visit and talked about Family visits dating back to 1961

It seemed time stood still with no internet or computers

Study Nature every thing else seems a waste

Pythagoras, quoted in Simon Singh’s altogether fascinating Fermat’s Enigma: The Epic Quest to Solve the World’s Greatest Mathematical Problem (public library), replies:

” Life… may well be compared with these public Games for in the vast crowd assembled here some are attracted by the acquisition of gain, others are led on by the hopes and ambitions of fame and glory. But among them there are a few who have come to observe and to understand all that passes here.

It is the same with life. Some are influenced by the love of wealth while others are blindly led on by the mad fever for power and domination, but the finest type of man gives himself up to discovering the meaning and purpose of life itself. He seeks to uncover the secrets of nature. This is the man I call a philosopher for although no man is completely wise in all respects, he can love wisdom as the key to nature’s secrets. ”

Having learned from some of the greats, studying Scientists, Artists, Creators and Designers they all seem to eventually turn to Nature.

It seems that in enduring life and it’s traumas and it’s majesty, people like Frank Loyd Wright, was Erickson, Emily Dickinson and so so many others

is our instinct I always wonder where is there something more magical and mystical that presents itself to us on this great earth love this quote thank you Breen picking you always lift my thoughts up to higher places Suzanne

I come from…( an Exercise

I Come from the full moon

I come from the woods

and the river that ambled by

I come from many children

I come from under a damp leaf

I come from Blue Hill Road

I came from children with salty fingers

and where the deer licked there hands

I come from the O’Brien’s , who made boots

I came from love that ran from grief

I came from soft grass and large sky’s

From hard wooden floors and muddy ponds

I come from under the lake where the salamanders hide

I come form prayers and for Pete sake

I come from a thin space where eyes can not see

I come you and I go to me

I come from a game thats called out your name from behind trees

I come from a dream and a cup of tea

I come from indigo that runs into sap green

I come from a long breath followed by a deep sign

I come from watermelon and ice pops

I come from laughter and sugary sweets

I come from holding hands in the shadows of night

I come from the wind

I come from the sun

I come from a words, waiting to be sung

Gelateria Beppino

You must stop by and visit this wonderful cafe and say hi to Suzanne & Beppino, sit for while and try one of Suzanne’s wonderful tasty pastries.

I’m amazed that some people still do not know this cafe is here in Bridport.

Knowing what a company gets wrong is not always easy, but I sure know when I see one that’s got it right.

Having started and run a few small businesses in my early life. I understand the dedication and difficulty that goes into opening and running a new company.

The pressure of starting up, opening and then making businesses a success, you need experience and tenacity.

I enjoy supporting new business with good style and consistent branding. Some might say Bridport has enough coffee shops but I disagree, I believe it will become a place to come to get a drink and spend time in our town, with wide sidewalks busy market and plenty of seating. Crowds come with warm summer days and the town will always be busy. Our wide Sidewalk overflowing with people sightseeing and people watchers.

If you haven’t discovered it already, go see this new cafe / Gelateria in town,

Gelateria Beppino #33 West Street is beautiful café. It is run by a lovely couple with a passion for Italian Gelato, gorgeous pastries

and so so much more.

From the Decor , light shades and to the fresh Italian pastries, cakes and wonderful tasty morsels. Everything is thought out and carefully executed with love and elegance.

I love writing about and promoting small local companies it is my own labor of love.

Gelateria Beppino sure does make Bridport a sweeter place!
