A brisk walk in the woods during the early hours brought wonderful views and deepened thought as although we are all still in the grips of winter-spring is just waiting to burst into action!!!
A trusty path walked many times always brings reward. Still, this morning at that so very special time just before the rise in that sacred space where our creative thought flows at peak, we sporadically decided to navigate an alternative route through the darkened shadows.
This radical decision brought nervous thought as this untravelled route could bring random result, but it felt good to venture in this cold and in some way totally undiscovered area.
Companions ran in front excited with new smells and the possible chance of a tasty treat. Together we crossed the frostbitten land as we ventured deeper and deeper as time slipped by climbing across fallen trees and battling through last year's growth of bramble.
As we smashed through these brittle stems, it suddenly came to thought that although broken, brittle, and most definitely dead, life still hangs low waiting for that perfect condition to become reborn.
How mysterious can things actually be - if you take a step sideways, the amount of things in life we take for granted is far too much - Although a bramble these sophisticated plants exist alongside, arriving back every season to battle for dominance and condition they require to flourish.
Anyway if we don't progress we will still be typing about brambles for some time - so where were we ??
Whilst on our Friday morning sunrise walk we witnessed many things as we spotted Spring hiding out just waiting to showcase at that most perfect of time.
Mother Nature works in mythical ways, but any project, dish, or, in fact, anything in life can be rushed, but launching something at the most perfect of time will always bring perfect result.
Think of it this way taking the mash off the boil early as you simply can't wait anymore will most definitely end with you working hard to get your mash to that velvety, smooth and rich consistency we all dream about.
It may start out bumpy, which you may never actually recover from the amount of work, and added ingredient could be vast simply to recoup that most perfect of flavour.
It's a difficult thing to know when the time is right, but when you are connected, it screams from within as to when its arrived - Removing from the heat at the precisely the right time, your mash will be utter perfection leaving you a flavour memory you will never ever forget.
Read from the above what you will- Do you have a particular time where the best ideas arrive ??? remember, don't rush them; just let them germinate readily to showcase and change mindset forever...
