Saturday we had sunshine and went to Godolphin with Belinda for some more image collecting, sadly Zoe Osmond couldn't make it. We went ahead experimenting with a small mobile group which enabled Anna and Skye to engage more with the project, they had the giggles some of the time and we had fun exploring different spaces.

After a particularly lovely improv from 'doors half open' on Friday i suggested, "you could try to write a poem for this" and joy of joys Elaine did!
When one door closes another opens
Some people say -
‘When one door closes another opens’
but first I think we need to seek to find the outer gate.
Leading up the garden path we pause
and pick the flowers by the way,
before we seek another route.
If only we could see behind these doors,
spy in little windows or
peep between the cracks and look in keyholes,
maybe find the secrets to our future lives.
But no, we must push on further,
take the road less travelled and
so then we knock a little louder on the doors we find.
See - in the darkness – someone is on the other side,
a crack of light spills out,
we push the handle harder and
take the hand that’s offered……..
Leaning to embrace, it pulls us through.
