Simplicity Is the Greatest Adventure.

Simplicity is the greatest adventure:

Simplicity is the greatest adventure you will have:

Simplicity is the greatest adventure you will have yet to come:

Simplicity is the greatest bravery of them all.

An invitation to visit a friend at her Georgian farmhouse but one that I hadn’t taken up for months, an invitation a hand reaching out but not taken.

An invitation that I took up one murky , obtuse sort of a day was it Tuesday was Wednesday who can truly say. Heavy footsteps up the hill ancipation and quivers were setting me of a chill.

Up , Up upon the woodland lane beyond the edge of reason some might say.

When footsteps take you forward there is no point in going back , windswept , worried nearing upset.

Through the scecret garden rusty gate would it be a headless horseman to relay my fate.

There upon I reach the gate turning back will be no more.

You spy a raven , shadow hopping about the moor thinking is Edgar Allan Poe come to spy.

A wellingtonia tree.

Door bell rang .

In I go to a Victorian time capsule with Georgian flavour, seated upon a comfy sofa.

Where had I be at WI?

I was mentioned in dispatches.

“Who me ?”

So mentioned I had been ill.

“Oh no worries, we thought we had sacred you off”

“We thought you were brave coming to the WI on your own “

And there upon I was shown in the farmhouses secret garden.

Georgian farmhouse.

The secret garden.

Brave is the greatest simplicity.

Peeking through to the secret garden.

Brave is adventures yet to come.

Down to the cellar.

Brave doesn’t have to be complicated.

Glorious Georgian brickwork.
