One Family up a Hill


One Family Up a Hill

There is a place we can go
When our feelings are low,
Where the wild winds blow,
The cobwebs of trauma away.
A place that Stig and daddy enjoy,
Cathartic for him and the boy,
A walking and talking foray.
Sometimes we too,
Mummy and Tink, accompany you,
And as a family we make the ascent.
To the top of a hill,
Where the view there will fill,
Your heart with the greatest content.
The grandest of landscapes,
Can be seen all around,
And the largest of worries are no longer found.
For the briefest of times
Anxiety declines
And bodies held together by pain,
Relax and revive,
We feel glad to be alive,
And together as a family up a hill.

    Lovely! We get the same feelings from hiking here in the summer with Jonathan. We discovered it late last summer…there was something magical about getting him out in the mountains. I am looking forward to when the snow melts and we can get out again, until then thanks for the lovely pictures, words and sentiment:)

    Beautiful words (loved that poem) and gorgeous photos – you are a whizz with the lens; it looks very dramatic and windswept up there! X
