As ever, life is moving at a pace. The children are ever changing, our family dynamic constantly shifting and as a mother, I feel I am evolving (and learning and learning and learning). It’s really great and I love to see us all developing – I just wish I could slow it down sometimes. Completely still moments are far more rare than the busy ones, and I appreciate them so much. I could breathe in the silence, you know – I feel like I’m basking in it, when it happens. I think all busy parents will know exactly what I mean. Audrey Hepburn was once quoted as saying; “I have to be alone very often. I’d be quite happy if I spent from saturday night until monday morning alone in my apartment. That’s how I refuel.” I’m that kind of person – and since having the children, these quiet alone times to recharge do become less frequent and often feel fleeting. Though when they come, they are so valued – and so needed. I am working a little again – and I may see a client or two per week for a holistic treatment. Sometimes there are gaps, where my client leaves and the children arrive home. Even 10 or 15 minutes is so treasured. This week I used the spare time to take some photos of a still house. Another ever changing place – with a constant turn over of children’s paintings on the walls, new objects, seasonal flowers and plants and constantly rearranged furniture. I thought I’d better catch a few images, as it stood last week, on a quiet friday morning.
