Catherine’s story reflects on a childhood spent outdoors, a swallows and amazons existence, of train journeys into long summers, exploring and being in nature and building life long friendships.
A working life of teaching, a love of books and time spent supporting loved ones, and how it’s important to go with the flow and expect the unexpected.
It’s about developing the wisdom to be gentle with oneself for the missed paths, or the turns in the road that are beyond our control.
The future might involve a creative exploration into words and books and travel.
‘To wind our way, on tracks and turns to old haunts and new horizons’.
‘Go with the flow, expect the unexpected, don’t give yourself a hard time with ‘getting things wrong.’
