'A sense of humour lends you poise, it gives you balance and it helps you to bend without breaking'

(HH Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda)

Menootanaboot; again - fifth viewing

We left off on Monday with me trundling down some steps - quite a few of them. At the bottom, there was an enormous gap from the rung to the hillside and I nearly came a cropper. Managing to remain upright, I then came down the last stretch to the flat walkway over the wetland bit. It didn't feel particularly secure, but it was better than wet feet. There came a gate and there, one entered the community gardens as had been promised some fifty feet above. Entering here was entering a small piece of heaven. Stillness, birds and insect sounds... a pond, lots of seats and picnic tables... AND... sculptures. All with names like, 

'Nature's Golden Spiral'
and 'Honey Hexagon'...
but then... THEN... THEN...

What do you think, fans of the Hindertwiglets? Did I land in the place of imagination and discover
my Hill Bert and Low Sooz??!!!

Only one more day of this before moving on to whatever next insanity presents itself...


  1. Perfect photos to go with your ongoing story.
    The outside art is quite unique.
