#MondayMusings – Getting out of my Head

Monday Musings

Like all writers, I spend too much time living in my head. Whenever I couldn’t stand it any longer in the US I’d go out and garden.  I had two enormous plant filled terraces in Santa Monica

Being out in my garden just seemed to clear out any blockages.  I only have a small courtyard garden in Bristol which takes no time at all to tend.

I love flowers and I particularly love cut flowers for the house.  I can’t do too much cutting in my Bristol garden so I end up buying flowers.

But, whether home-grown or purchased. you need to put flowers in something. So I started collecting pottery in Bristol. (I couldn’t very well bring my previous pottery collection from the States).

I also love walking but hate just walking a circuit.  I like a destination.  Bristol has some great Charity Shops (Thrift Stores in the US).  They are my destinations. I’ve gotten some great pottery bargains while getting a bit of fresh air and exercise, being out in the world, and back in my body.  Here are some of my best discoveries:

           

             

The last two pictures are a real find for 75p.  It’s signed on the bottom by a well-known sculptor and potter. I Love finding treasures!
