Water, rain, full and flowing. October is a month of active nature. The temperatures dip, the wind picks up and the low light of the cooler months makes an appearance. Being around flowing water is some I love. Why? There is considerable scientific discussions around the benefit of ions, the meditative flow and the general relaxation us humans feel when we’re close to water. For me, it’s a treat for the senses, and a reminder of the power of nature. The coolness around flowing water, the mesmerising movement, the fresh smell, and the invigorating sound of the water’s energy. Just look at the lovely peaty water flowing down from the hills and rushing out to the Loch.
Water, rain, full and flowing
The burble of the flowing water, the constant movement and ever changing shapes. It is fascinating to monitor the changes of over the months as the burn changes size, from a shallow flow with small brown trout, reflecting the blue clouds to a raging peaty torrent racing noisily towards the loch. This blog title should be an autumn inspired poem. I don’t write poetry but I am a writer.
