Richmond Park Muse


"...and she was just going to spring over, when she heard a deep sigh, which seemed to come from the wood behind her."

~Alice in Wonderland

We spent a few lovely hours in Richmond Park. A sumptuous green wonderland full of paths, stags and room for thought. You could walk it for years and still find something new, a hidden lake, a quaint English lodge, hollow trees large enough to hold an avid reader with a soaring imagination. I was dragged willingly from screen and keyboard; slowly shaking off the thoughts of the day as they clung on, merging with reality: Scene 1, Ext. Richmond Park, two friends walk gingerly upon...
and of course you simply release here, talk when you want and enjoy the silence when you feel it. The camera came along, resulting in the photograph above. One ought to find places like this as often as possible. Embrace the heady gift of nature.

I love this. Seems the trees are talking to each other, paying no mind to the people below..

It's true, they do seem to communicate the way the branches reach out... :)

Clarity - my Grandmother use to have a saying. When the trees undress, we dress. When the dress, we undress. So much truth to that.
Enjoy your day!

You're a great writer! Very lovely! ;)

p.s. did you know another Alice in Wonderland movie is set to come out next year?! With Johnny Depp of course.

-Purple flowers - that quote is very amusing.
- Hi Clarice - I got her a signed book from my favourite Chef, Bill Granger, a Fine Art photograph of her favourite roses and an extra something which she hasn't seen it ;)
-The Socialite, thank you for the comp., very flattered. Re. The Tim Burton "version" - I am so determined to film "Alice in Wonderland", have wanted to direct that since ... always. Well, "In another 5 years you can" quipped a Director I know - but who can wait that long? :)
