Bird, Beast and Buttercup

So there is a field of buttercups we sometimes walk through. It reminds me of the morning. This morning there was an aching for you in my mind. Buttercups come to mind golden and glowing as though if kissed by sunlight just for us to walk through.   When I was a child, I placed a buttercup under my chin; amazed by its reflection.  How time passes. Let us just sit in the grass, letting time slip away from us. Block out the world all except you and I.   You are my central core of fire from which I was … Continue reading Bird, Beast and Buttercup

Lake Country House Retreat

Came to the Welsh country. It was in the South; West Glamorgan and below the Brecon Beacons and the Black Mountains and near the east of Pembrokeshire.  It’s where we will live for nearly the whole of our life.

You are the beauty that surrounds me as I whisper these words to you;  “So happy you are mine, my love; you … Continue reading Valentine

About Palm Trees

It is in these quiet moments, I can hear the wind in the palms as it were a symphony playing. When a coconut falls to the ground, it almost sounds like the beating wings of a bird in flight. All is silent until it falls.  It’s a silent touch when look me with longing eyes. I listen and wait for the taste of that honey sweet. It’s that anticipation that speaks to me; a taste so much more than mere words can whisper.  You see, there are no words for some things. Just us and the day without the linguistic … Continue reading About Palm Trees

Udawalawe 

Udawalawe created a watershed; the Udawalawe Reservoir. It was built for the refuge of Asian elephants in Sri Lanka located just south of the central mountains.  There it has extensive stretches of grassland as well as scrub jungle and riverine forest.  It’s the best in the continent for the protection and for observing Asian elephants in the wild.  Elephant sightings are even guaranteed when you only go on a safari drive.  Continue reading Udawalawe
