Magic in the Wild

We have been spending so so many magical days out in wild places these last few weeks, and I feel more deeply connected to the earth than I have done in ages. 

We have spent many a day messing about in magical woodlands with friends, getting lost in their beauty, ancient secrets whispered from every tree, plant and bird. We have sat and chattered, jumped, climbed, wheeled and spun... lost in tall grasses, fields of flowers, hung out up close and personal with bugs and birds and butterflies. I seem to be covered in bug bites, but a small price to pay!

We have visited enchanting fairy glades, made daisy chains, found secret places. Squished and patted and played with the earth in our hands, and squooshed and sloshed in it as mud on our feet. We have stood on hilltops. Played in the sea. 

We have felt the ocean breeze dance all around us till it went dark, with fire-flames licking into the dark, with laughter and whoops of freedom ringing in the air. 

The heady scent of honeysuckle in the evenings has woven its magical way in the ether and perfumed the air all around us.

Life feels good for our family right now. Being closer to the wild feels delicious. I am feeling intoxicated from the magic of these wild places, and I want more, more, more!

Tell me about your wild days, dear readers

  1. Lovely post. I think it's when we are in the wildest places that we feel most alive.
