Christmas and New Year celebrations keep us going for a bit longer and if you can’t make it through January there’s always Burns night.
So the seasons change and we associate various events with each one.
Funerals in the winter can involve the weather at its most elemental. Crisp, frosty mornings, stormy skies, autumn colour, mist draped over the landscape. But if you’re wrapped up warm and have a cosy room and a log fire to gather around after the event…. One of the healing effects of going back to visit and remember someone at a natural burial ground are these changes of season and the accompanying weather.
Life and nature move unstoppably forwards.
Stories and thoughts from the Leedam camp.
