''The elf-queene, with hir joly compaignie, Daunced ful ofte in many a grene mede.” Geoffrey Chaucer "The Wife of Bath’s Tale"


Chilly mornings and crisp autumn days always stirs memories of other times preparing  for  the winter with  the security of stored food in the cellar, herbs drying on the rafters and dry wood ranked outside the door.  One of my favorite things is being snugged in on a snowy winter days with a cuppa and the smell of a  simmering pot of something savory on the fire.  While technology has greatly improved our lives it came with the price of  spending most of our waking time working, often  in a cubicle under artificial lights, to earn the money to pay for our mod con's.  Today, more people are forsaking the new car, new house and cruises for a simpler life, relying  on their  intuition  in tune with the natural world outside their door. . . what about you?
