Soulfood Friday

Make a stillness around you, a field of peace.
Your best work, the best time of your life will be grown out of this peace."
Peter Heller, "The painter"

Stormy skies and glowing sunsets over the farm buildings down the lane.

The flight of swallows that I will miss.

Messages in bottles from "Gifts from the Sea"

A friendly pile of favourite reads to keep me company.

This raggle taggle girl.

"Leave the city of your comfort and step out into the wilderness of your intuition." 
Alan Alder

Every Friday I'll be pausing to notice something from the week that has nourished my soul.
A special, sacred-everyday moment captured on camera, or perhaps a snippet from a book, a recipe still warm from the kitchen or something whimsical that simply made me smile. 
Here are a few simple things that have fed my soul this week.

What has inspired/fed/nourished your soul this week friends?
Feel free to link up to your own soulful spaces either at the bottom of this post or in the comments.

  5. Stormy skies go really well with Thomas Hardy and his wonderful descriptions of wild places both outside in nature and inside the heart! I love your copy of his book. His heroines are all so interesting and make me think A LOT about many things. I would love to roam your countryside! Sigh!
