Langden Valley – Forest of Bowland

Standard

Craftfulness, apparently,
is the new mindfulness

Walking along the stunning Langden Valley,
resplendent in autumn colours,
I became mindful
that crafters had been out and about
creating the countryside

Needle felter
creates textures in the hillsides

Street artist
-the Banksy of the Countryside-
leaves splodges of colour
to mark a trail

Surface pattern designer
builds a wall of shadow and texture

Sculptor
Peeping through the rhododendrons
she’s still there
Miranda, the water nymph

Miranda – Water Nymph

If craftfulness is the new mindfulness
what about walkfulness?
That works for me every step of the way

How about
gardenfulness
bakefulness
and any other ‘ness you can think of?

Whatever makes you feel good
can only be goodfulness
