This is my third instalment of small stones for the  #aros project. (To see first two parts and to read an explanation of what this project is about, please see my Jan 7th and Jan 15th posts ). I hope you enjoy them.

Pressure-washed by gale-driven rain, earth softens. Starlings and rock doves jab the grass. Snowdrop bulbs peep through.

You came into life feet first, skipped to school, strolled to college, strode to work. And still in step with life. Happy Birthday, son.

Full moon pours white light onto the surface of the loch. It shines through a chiffon cloud and Orion stands guard in a navy blue sky.

Affirmation and kindness have been the order of today. A conversation, a meditation, a meeting and an email made all the difference.

Jan 21st

A rare, deep sleep, a necessary dream, gave comfort and revelation.

Saturday morning, a second cup of tea, a long phone blether with my darling daughter, then a pause of quiet contemplation. Time to breathe.
