The Little Things

people tend to rush about never taking notice of the things around themselves. the actual colour of the sky. the habit of a busy bumble bee. its so sad.

so heres my plan - take note of the little things. then let us know abotu them.

....today i was walkign down the same old piece of road to go home and i looked up and actully took time to look down the road and out over the hills at the end of it. all the fields were rich greens, dark browns, and bright yellows. like patchwork. the sun split the sky and a streak of brilliant blue shone through an other wise grey day.

we are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars

There is an Iron Age hillfort overlooking my home village. Over the weekend, I went up there early in the morning (6am a few days before midsummer), and the sun was just in the right place to highlight what appeared to be earthen terraces cut into a nearby hillside.

I suspect that the inhavitants of the fort practiced terrace farming on the nearby south facing slope - it is too high up and windswept to grow corn, but barley and oats (the cereal crops of choice in Iron Age Britain; corn was imported by the Romans) are rather hardier.

Although the hillfort has been excacated by archeologists, they didn't have the resources to examine the surrounding area to work out where the locals would have tended their crops, although it would have been nearby for protection and south-facing for the sunlight.

One thing I really like is when you get a few dry, hot days and then it starts to rain. There's a wonderful earthy smell in the air because of all the dust kicked up by the raindrops.
