A Mindful Morning

Mindfulness doesn’t have to be about meditation and sitting quietly.. it is also about noticing and appreciating little things and being aware of your surroundings.

I decided to have a wander round Golden Acre Park¬† so here are some pictures and musings.

I love autumn leaves and it was the perfect time to see the colours changing.

The park used to be a proper old fashioned pleasure ground and had a little railway track around the lake. The trains stopped many years ago but they have kept this old platform, sowed wildflower seeds and let nature do its thing.

Bob Leckridge – Heroes not Zombie

Heroes not Zombies is a wonderful and thought provoking blog by Bob Leckridge who is a medically trained doctor living in Scotland. He was a GP for many years before retraining as a homeopath and now works at the Glasgow Homeopathic Hospital which is part of the NHS.

Bob started blogging several years ago and there are a huge number of posts on Heroes not Zombies about health, mindfulness and meditation, photography, homeopathy, life, nature, travels and more.

The thing I love most are his wonderful photos.  He has an eye for patterns and nature and notices beautiful things that many of us would miss. For an example see this recent post from here to here which starts with the story of a single hollyhock seed .Watch movie online The Transporter Refueled (2015)

Many of Bob’s photos can be found on flickr and are well worth a look.
