Keep Moving

I’ve just read Dick Van Dyke’s book, ‘Keep Moving’.
My favourite quote: ‘Don’t be scared of dying. Be more frightened that you haven’t finished living’.

The spirit of the garden. The Green Man

The Green Man is believed to be the spirit of the garden and symbolises life cycle, death and re-birth.
He is a Pagan symbol ushering in the Spring and the renewal of luscious vegetation after the long winter.
