Small villages on my steps

A little bit of rain
And hidden tiny villages
Appear on my steps.

Into the indigo
And again and again
Then unrolled.

Cooked up nicely
Chocolatey and hot
Into the indigo
What will emerge?

Getting cooler
Time to start some boiling up
First to stitch
Together a tunic
Lovely wool jersey
A bucket of leaves from last year
Favourite copper pipe
Rolled stuffed and submerged.

I have been reading an article in the new edition of Slow magazine (sorry, guys, if I knew how to hyperlink it I would.)

They write about the joys of aimless working. I am delighted by the image of 18th century French flaneurs wandering the streets of Paris with a turtle on a leash to set the correct pace!

Starting to feel like I need to find a turtle to wander the city lanes of Melbourne!
