As a city dweller it is easy to miss the seasons. Caught up in the rush of daily life, surrounded by buildings and concrete and cars, I don’t always stop to look at the changing of the light or the colours of the trees.

It’s been wonderful to feel so aware of what the world is doing around me, renewing and decaying, to renew again, almost entirely of its own accord.
Now with Christmas over, as we move deeper into winter, it seems the right time to start something new here. So take a mouthful of coffee and a deep breathe, and let’s begin.
