Treasuring your special moments

DSCF8771“Treasure these moments they will never come again” said my mother to  dear friends in the Pyrenees 25 years ago when their young children where running ahead investigating the joys of a tiny stream.

We are all a lot older now but holidaying with the same friends recently we still found some more moments to treasure.

Mado trundling the wheelbarrow along
the path with hay for the horse and donkey

watching our friends dancing in the barn
a tender love affair in movement

twisting ribbon through the lavender
busy butterflies and hum of bees

walking over well-worn cobbles in medieval towns
swimming the clear warm sea at Collioure
climbing up to the old stone windmill
drifting down past the flowering cactus

bright yellow Rubekia at their cottage in the foothills
jagged trees and ice tipped mountain ridges

sitting under the canopy of the oak tree
ripe melon, juicy apricots, cool white wine
  DSCF8572     DSCF8573    DSCF8571-001
homemade gateau, golden cheeses, fresh salads
gentle conversation that drifts on forever.

    Please take a look at my post about the strength of friendship and the bittersweet moment when you have to say goodbye

    Read your post Molly liked the fact that the ending was very reassuring.

    Unless a lifeline materialises before the end of August, John will be closing Pighog 🙂

    I’ve said to him that I would consider taking it on, with the help of a board of trustees, and restructuring it as a not-for profit, with arts council funding.
