I pulled up my socks and put on my hat and ventured out into the garden yesterday despite the relentless rain.IMG_6455

It felt good to get out of the house. The sound of rain can be pleasantly insulating.IMG_6451

The world closes in until nothing remains but the tip tip tip of it and the thoughts in your head. IMG_6459
