A New Year, a new beginning, new 'Moomin' calendar. I do love the Moomins, I think it was Jeanette Winterton who said that she wished she could write like Tove Jansson. All her wonderful imaginative stories are beautiful, allegorical and deceptively simple. January's picture is from 'The Exploits of Moominpappa - the fourth book in the Moomin series, in which Moominpappa tells of his adventure meeting the Mymble family,in a far away island: Moominpappa and friends are spooked by the ghost until they manage to befriend him. . . . . . . . .Do you befriend the ghosts that spook you? Life is a lot less anxiety ridden when you can.
Took these pics in this slide show this morning. The sun came out, bright, blue sky and an almost blue sea, just a cold breeze blowing. People wrapped up enjoying the sunshine, adults children, dogs. Even the seabirds gulls, turnstones, sanderlings, and oystercatchers happily feeding on mussels, little crabs, periwinkles, and pecking at insects in the seaweed as the tide is going out..... I'm blowing the cobwebs away with a slow paced walk with Brian on Rossall beach looking south towards Blackpool Tower. Just as I like it, life in the slow lane. . . . Happy New Year to you my friends x
