It is so satisfying to rake this newly prepared ground over to a fine tilth. I can't wait to plant it up over the coming weeks!

I've only just been made aware of this poem written by Kitty O'Meara that has gone viral on social media. It was inspired by the coronavirus pandemic.
And the people stayed home. And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still. And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently.
And the people healed. And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal.
And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again, they grieved their losses, and made new choices, and dreamed new images, and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, as they had been healed.
If this has helped you, pass it on to someone who may need to hear this right now.

There is no time for me to be bored. I actually think I am on auto pilot and I have been more productive than ever. I wake up early and am tired by bedtime. I have been occasionally working out with weights with my son's instruction and have built up some impressive muscles! By the time all this is over I will emerge from the house like a butterfly free from its cocoon showing off a new and improved version of myself. I am also getting delusional with this confinement!

4oz self-raising flour (110g)
1 tsp ground ginger
1 level tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 and half oz granulated sugar (40g)
2oz margarine (I used butter) (50g)
2 tablespoons golden syrup (50g)
Preheat oven to gas mark 5 (375F) (190C)
Grease a large baking tray.
Sift flour, ginger, bicarbonate of soda together in a mixing bowl.
Add sugar. Lightly rub in butter until crumbly. Add syrup. Mix it all to a stiff paste.
Divide mixture into sixteen even pieces and roll into balls.
Place on baking sheet leaving plenty of space between. Flatten slightly.
Bake just above centre on oven for about 15 minutes. Leave to cool for 10 minutes and then transfer to wire rack.
Store in an airtight tin if they last that long!
