What is love, if not that feeling of elation experienced is one heeds the ‘stop’ sign for a moment (or lots of moments) and notices …
… notices, the contrasting colours in the land where we stand?
The flowers in our hedgerows:
The leaves at our feet:
The homes of our little folks:
And even the scars on our trees.
Love is where love is – and nurtured for free by the People.*
Even in the tiny bits of land that we call our gardens.
What is a Day Job, if it shuts us up inside blocks of concrete, keeps out the light, and stops us from landing?

*People’s Park, in Sudbury, was willed to Babergh Council for the sole purpose of being home to a People’s Hospital. Barbergh sold the land to an umimaginative developer; hence, it is now boasts a non-descript housing estate, albeit with some very attractive wild flowers on its border.
N.B. Sadly, Babergh are now also looking to make a profit from the redevelopment of one of Sudbury’s most iconic buildings, Belle Vue House, the centrepiece of Sudbury’s Belle Vue Park.
Today, the Suffolk Mercury newspaper, sported an interesting front-page story. Now, I do wonder about the source? Hmmmm!
