Summer Blues

Dartmoor is covered in mist this morning and all I can see are the colours in the garden. The oranges and yellows of the Welsh poppies, pink and white roses, and thousands of geraniums, pink, white and this amazing blue. Incredible colours to begin the day, enveloped in a deep fog.

Happy Summer Solstice. The longest day of the year. A group of foxgloves have magically appeared just at my back door and are in their element. Tonight I am playing in one of Mozart's lesser known opera's, Seraglio, in the cloisters of a manor house garden. I am filled by the lightness and depth of Mozart. How he lifts the spirit and touches the soul in the gentlest of ways.

There is something about the sound of the wind that fills my heart with a sense of excitement. A storm is brewing, it's force building up, and its strength growing. I find the rhythm calming and expansive and it reminds me of being at sea once more. Somehow this natural force inspires me to breathe more deeply, to tune in to the depths of my soul and listen with intensity. Seventy miles per hour or more in the west: time for great transformation.
