Bumble Bee and Thistle

Bumble Bee and Thistle

I took this on the disused railway of mid Norfolk, near a hamlet called Worthing, where I once lived. Set in the middle of an agricultural farm we was truly connected to nature. The river Wensum flowed across the field from where we lived and the fields hosted an array of crops from sugar beat, wheat, corn and rapeseed. Owls regularly visited our garden and we spent many evenings watching the bats as they swooped around the garden catching bugs, grubs and anything else they could find.

We could hear beyond the milkyway and see the silence of the forest as it shrouded us with a great sense of peace and tranquillity. It is a fondness I will cherish forever and I hope I eased my children’s inner selves with a connection to nature that will always sit deep within them, nurturing their unconscious.

I took this photo on my way home from a school I was working in, in New Addington. I was supporting a year six child who had Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties (EBD). He spent most of his time with me being angry, he found conforming very challenging. At times he appeared confused with life. My role was challenging to say the least. Driving home through the Kent countryside help me enormously. I found myself absorbing the yellow energy of the rapeseed. I was able to leave the worries of New Addington behind and support my own family with a clear head.
