Crossing The Moor In Those Dark Hours

"Did you lie down in a field again?" My mother asked me almost as soon as I walked through the door. At my sheepish yes she informed me that I had carried half of the field home with me on the back of my coat. Whoops. I'm often liable to get caught up in the moment; spying something I want to get a closer look at or chasing some phantom real or imagined and so I rip my tights or get my hair caught on outstretched tree branches and bushes. I slide and sometimes fall trying to scramble down steep hills--it's not an adventure if I don't end it with a few bruises or scrapes. With summer insects dying away in early morning frosts I'm beginning to venture away from sandy beaches and into unfamiliar fields while chasing flocks of migrating birds...

Lovely post, It's nice to hear that people still appreciate nature and are not too wrapped up in the virtual world!

I love the sweet schoolgirl look about this post. And because I haven't said so before, this pixie cut rocks. It is definetely the best cut I've seen u in, and trust me not everyone one can sport this kind of short hair.

Dear Rebecca, I have just re-visited your blog after a while and to my surprise, you've got new hair! I thought it was a different girl when I checked out your tumblr but once I saw this post, I'm quite shocked since you look totally different. But girl, you are quirky in a good way and I would love to read some more. Nice shawl and cute shoes btw!

Cheers,
