The other day had a lovely walk round Buttermere. It is one of the smaller lake (fortunately) in the Lake District, a most beautiful part of England. I know foreign holidays are limited or non-existent at the moment but there were very many people walking round. It was great to see folk enjoying themselves with a little bit of freedom.

We live in such a wonderful world. Often we are too busy to notice it. These last few months there has been opportunity to ‘stop and stare’ as William Henry Davies (1871-1940) wrote –

What is this life, if full of care, we have no time to stand and stare?

No time to stand beneath the boughs and stare as long as sheep or cows?’
