Although this place is not really 'mine' (I am its custodian, not its 'owner'), quite honestly, what is? Nothing! For all our attachments, paperwork and sense of permanence or entitlement, the fact is that we can't take anything with us but the love we have in our hearts and the wisdom and insight we have extracted from our lives. Being on this land, in these times, with free reign to wander at will, gives me ample opportunity to develop and absorb all three...
Am I grateful for the joy my temporary stewardship of this little bit of the Peak District National Park brings to me? You bet I am!
