This old English Proverb has always been a favourite of mine and I try to remind myself of it when things are not running as smooth as I would like them to be, like this week.
I was booked in today to do a photography course with Robyn from Please Don't Say Cheese and to be honest when I looked outside this morning and saw that the sky was a dark as my moods have been this week, I really didn't want to go anywhere.
But I did and the moment I stepped out of my car and swallowed that familiar salty air and felt the wind slap at my cheeks, I realised that there was no better place for me to be.
The sea heals me, there is no doubt about it and it is a place where I feel so gloriously insignificant.
I like that, feeling insignificant.... it puts any troubles, or any worries I have into perspective.
I never tire of doing photography workshops because I learn something new from every single one. Each teacher sees the world a little differently to the last and I find their enthusiasm and utter respect for photography a heady combination that inspires me and makes me fall in love with my own camera all over again.
That's exactly what happened today, and I suspect I will be carrying that camera with me everywhere again for a while.
What's your special place that never fails to heal you?
