Foraging: this week, we met at a distance of 2 m apart, in the rain. After a drizzly start, sharing news and hopes for future plans, as restrictions ease, walkers enjoyed a warm Elderflower infusion, made from the naturally air dried, locally collected flowers. This is a useful preservation technique. My Tuesday morning walks are shown live on Zoom and are open for all to enjoy by joining through.
Music: this week I’m listening to Angélique Kidjo‘s version of the classic ‘Summertime’ song, which gives it an essential African/French twist, perfect for dancing to. Last year, I was fortunate to attend the Songlines International Music Awards ceremony, hosted by one of my favourite presenters, singer Cerys Matthews (Catatonia), where Angélique won a highly deserved award in her section. That was an amazing session!
Fitness: following the realisation that movement is emotionally beneficial, to release the energy within from being in; inside keeping movement and an oxygen flow is good for the body especially this summer. Enter Dancing Tao to the rescue; 5 Rhythms in our homes, this Friday night for a special transmission. Escape the rain and enjoy the therapeutic effects, of the 5 rhythms teacher with a unique DJ set.
