"B" prepared

I live beside the beach (lucky me) and H and I try and walk on it when we can.  Usually I chatter on ten to the dozen about life and what's been happening etc while we walk briskly along to get our hearts pumping so we feel we've achieved some exercise.

Recently I have just been introduced to a friend's blog mindful walking with my dogs and I realised after reading it that I never mindful walk. My mind is always somewhere else, in the past or in the future, but never in the present.  I was so inspired by the blog that I have made an effort on my beach walks to be mindful.

So yesterday while walking mindfully on the beach I noticed much more of the landscape, the dunes that have shifted shape, the trees that have been washed from their banks and,  bugger me, what should I see but this butterfly wing. I picked it up to bring home, just because I could, when I realised that Butterfly started with B which was my letter of the week next week. 

I know it might sound cheesy, but this was a sign! 

Butterflies it will B.
