A few weeks ago, during a particularly difficult time for the poor Dafter, Michael took a firm hand and said to me, “Now go for a walk!” And I did, and it was almost magically lovely. I walked along the River Dee. What is it about rivers that makes them so calming?
There are so many spiritual songs about rivers: By the Waters of Babylon, Shall We Gather at the River Where Bright Angel Feet Have Trod, Wade In the Water, We Are Crossing Jordan River… And there is something so very soothing about watching a river flow by. It sort of puts things in perspective.
(I won’t mention songs about Bridges!) It was a beautiful evening with very low, golden light. And there was a faint rainbow, can you see it?
The Duthie Park was looking very beautiful in the distance, with the top of the obelisk peeping above the trees.
I came home feeling happy and a bit more energised. And then the rain came down! But Michael had just made a pot of tea so I really enjoyed my cuppa.
