I'm reading "The lives of Stella Bain"...by Anita Shreve. Pat from the Writers Group recommended it...something in it reminded me of the blog...'Kind over Matter'...making an effort to act or speak kindly each day. In the novel a soldier in France in the First World War looks for something beautiful every day...not easy in the middle of such destruction and chaos. Perhaps I'll have a go at this....today I watched the bird feeders in the hotel garden where the potter and me are staying....the thrill was a woodpecker with its wonderful red tail feathers ...though of course...all the other little birds made a quick exit.
