A Kindness Project

So it occurred to me recently that I still don't quite get it. I'm not grasping quite how important it is to be kind to ourselves.

John Muir said that, and he wasn't far wrong! We try to visit the Scottish highlands at least once a year, and each year I leave feeling inspired and ready to create. There… Continue reading Wildness is a Necessity
