The summer season

The Green and Away Summer Season is imminent

In less than two weeks time I will be waking up in a yurt in a green meadow somewhere in Worcestershire, ready to get Green and Away revved up for the summer season.  Most things are in place now with just a couple of interviews to complete our complements of interns and Artist in Residence.  I find that when summer is here, nature calls very loudly and I can’t bear to be living and working in a house so it is time to move outdoors.  Living outside, connected to nature, weather, bugs and beasts is the place to be.  I love early morning swims in the reservoir nearby, watching the carp leaping and the Canada geese training their young, while reed warblers flit around the reeds – warbling!  Of course it is not all wonderful.  We have to put up with mud, rain, cold, slugs, and other beasties, but this seems a small price to pay for living in a beautiful place with lovely people.

In these few days in the run up to moving to Green and Away, I will be finishing other work off, so no new patients (just current ones), and my Makhad Trust work will be scaled down.  I will still be able to answer queries during the summer but the emphasis is shifting to running G&A, the most environmentally sustainable tented conference centre there is!

I hope you enjoy your summer too – whether the sun shines or it pours with rain.

Home Sweet Home
