Welcome to OM Northernsky .
I'm in Scotland but know there are quiet a few that walk in your area, if you have a chance, look in "Meets and Partners" in the Forum page and ask a question or make a comment, you can also see what's going on in various areas.
Pull up a chair and have a look around in here, or if not, have a bracing walk in the wild outdoors .
Include a little history in your walks. Pecsaetan - Ancient Derbyshire, Staffordshire and South Yorkshire - http://pecsaetan.weebly.com/
Thanks for the welcomes. Hope I can contribute to the forum and share in my love for the outdoors. It is good to find so many like minded people here.
I have really just started to find my way around and if i am honest I am not totally familiar with this forum stuff.
Its great to get a welcome though so once again - thanks.
I've been here for a year or more Nsky and I'm still bumping into things , just ask, but if it's complicated, best not ask me .
Hello Salmon, difficult to answer that question really (without admitting it)
Do I posess some flowery shirts? Hmmm
Well as the poet Charles Boudelaire saw it "Les Fleurs du mal".
Thinking about it on a deeper level - perhaps flowery shirts posess me?
So I try to avoid them at the moment.
I can see you have a fine taste though.
I am concerned with your choice of poet. Surely the French should limit their poetry to surrendering (and maybe eating cheese). I personally enjoy Robert Browning but here is a little gem by William Blake (I have a shirt with sunflowers on).
Ah! sunflower, weary of time,
Who countest the steps of the sun,
Seeking after that sweet golden clime
Where the traveller’s journey is done;
Where the youth pined away with desire,
And the pale virgin shrouded in snow,
Arise from their graves and aspire;
Where my sunflower wishes to go.
Fine sentiments indeed Salmom.
William Blake is also a favourite of mine.
Perhaps now I shall go 'wander lonely as a cloud'
throught snow thats still ont hills
and perhaps avoid the crowds
and the walking daffodils
