Across the Highlands community groups are doing their best to look after the most vulnerable among us, as Covid-19 is spreading here too. In the village of Ballachulish every household received flags for display in their window or front door. A green tick means you’re healthy and able to go about your business, a red cross means you’re not so well and need help. Volunteers monitor the displays and arrange assistance where it is needed.
All along our coast we are blessed with friendly neighbours of the feathered kind. They pair for life, raise their chicks as a couple and community. There’s something special about the light in their eyes, traversing crystal sea or sky. The way they sit on chimney pots, watch over us, feels very reassuring.

While I am feeding the birds sleet begins to fall and the wind picks up. The sleet is heavy and slightly slanted, creating wonderful patterns in the water in one of the buckets I use to catch the rain.

Brian at the Rag Tag Daily Prompt invites us to share examples of Pareidolia.
Pareidolia is the perception of an object, a pattern or meaning seen by the observer, such as seeing shapes in clouds or seeing faces in inanimate objects or assigning human characteristics to objects.
Tina at Lens-Artists is looking for treasures (with a bonus point if you include a bucket) and Merril at dVerse Poets is inviting us to write about impermanence.
Wishing you all a magical Thursday,
with love from Xenia xxx
