I have two sons. There's a nine-year age gap between them and they had their difficulties with each other when they were younger but now they are really close, despite a distance of 14,000 miles between them. I know that they would have each others' back come what may. So I celebrate that they both turned out to be loving and loyal, despite growing up in a one-parent household.
I'm also celebrating the Autumn Equinox, which took place yesterday, the 22nd September. I love the cycle of changing seasons and I especially like early Autumn, the last lingering warm days, the low mists on the fields, the smell of bonfires, the harvests being brought in. My youngest son is living in Singapore for 2 years and tells me that though he enjoys the constant heat - around 34 degrees - he would love to occasionally wake up to a chilly morning.
I learned this poem as a schoolgirl and it remains one of my favourites, reminding me of days when the world seemed a more gentle place -
