On Glastonbury Tor, if anyone noticed...

Sunday Morning on the Tor

I passed this one on the way up the Tor this morning, clutching ipad and cigarette close to ward off any psychological or physical effect of being out on a fine Sunday morning, up a stunning natural feature of the landscape with the best views for miles around. He didn’t even say good morning when I passed and wished him the same, which in my extensive experience is pretty unusual for visitors to Glastonbury Tor. I imagine he was distracted, updating a spreadsheet: ‘Tor: done’… ‘Stonehenge: pending’.

On the plus side, I also passed a small child with small brown wellies on. The wellies had faces of Minotaurs printed on the toes đŸ™‚

Unfurling Ferns, 10th April

What I am really enjoying about sketching with my phone (a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 if you are interested) is that it is a thing that  I am likely to have with me almost always, unlike a sketchbook, which would be an extra thing to carry, not to mention the additional luggage of lots of coloured pencils if I wanted anything in colour. The phone is however a tricky thing with which do the fine detail that these beautiful little unfurling ferns deserved, that I happened upon near Glastonbury Tor.

But better to have sketched with wobbly hand than never to have sketched at all, as the bard would have said…
