The careful process of mentally sorting out the tangle of branches and twigs becomes almost meditative, as ink is laid on the paper, building up the subject piece by piece. Patience is the key, not to be too quick to get to the end.

22nd December 2016. The Solstice. Yule. A day of rebirth. A day to take stock and cast aside what is no longer needed, for today's new dawn awakens a brighter future, a new start. Untrodden paths are there for us to follow, and there is always just enough light for the step we are on.
