I love music. It is so awesome. On a number of occasions today a song has really struck me and resonated in a beautiful way.
It is easy to forgot how lovely music is sometimes when we have it all around us all of the time. We become complacent.
Today Music has made a great day even better….
(For the record it was New England by Red Box, Sweetest Smile by Black, The Feeling by Throwing Muses, Titanium by David Guetta, Fire by Ellie Goulding, Only Living boy in New Cross by Carter USM etc etc)
Our bodies are just vessels. No different than our cars or our houses. They are simply the “thing” that carries around our soul/heart/mind/life force.
We should not get hung up about them. We should do what we can to look after them – they are with us for the whole of our life. We can do various things to improve their condition and their appearance but they do not (or should not) define what we are.
Some people have old cars that cost them relatively nothing yet they spend all their time and efforts on looking after them. Other people spend tens of thousands of pounds on flash expensive cars that they abuse and don’t look after. The same with houses. The same with bodies.
Puffins. – Literally hundreds on them on the cliffs just below me on the coast path by Llandulas.
Sea Otter. – In the sea just off the beach as I was walking the coast path away from Pensarn.
Dolphins. – Seen then in captivity in the Florida Keys but also saw a pod of them out at sea in Tenerife. I was walking the path just above Alcala.
Owls. – Saw a snowy owl in the wild in the fields just outside Wantage back in about 1990 and saw another – might have been a tawny, hunting for food along the marsh track from Deeside Industrial Park to Wirral.
Pair of Badgers. – Walking through a field near Whitford and came across them snuggling in the undergrowth. When they saw us they ran off but not until one of them came towards us and gave an almighty vicious growl.
A HUGE Bull. – In the fields between Flint and Bagillt. He was absolutely enormous!

I drove to Pensarn and parked up looking for good 6 mile day. The sun was shining but it was cold and a bit windy.
Walked along and wondered if I would get to the big hill before or after completing my 3rd mile. Turned out I hit the mile 3 point right at the top of the hill. Was pleased to have got there though as when I looked down I could see hundreds and hundreds of puffins on the cliffs below. Took a picture as there were so many of them just enjoying their day, out of the sight of all man.
Turned back at top of the hill and returned to the car. Wouldn’t have seen those puffins if had been on my bike!
