Greenbelt Communion

The lengths people will go to get to Communion at Greenbelt is amazing...

The crowd gathered as 10.00am came and went...

we couldn't get our paper strips to stick together but were sitting next to someone who was well prepared and had a pritt stick. We managed to make a chain, only to find we had to tear it apart!

The clouds started to part

Inner Wellies

True to tradition, Richard and I found ourselves browsing in the booktent whilst at Greenbelt. In bought a book (ok several books) and one was a series of poems and reflections by Jane Upchurch. I think there are some brilliant, well thought through poems which I can relate to. The title poem is Inner wellies

Inner wellies

Each morning
I'm going to put on
my inner wellies
so I can splosh and slop
through all the floods and mud
life sends me
instead of tiptoeing round the edge
or getting stuck in the muck.

Greenbelt 2011

There's always a sense of having arrived at Greenbelt once the tent is pitched and the kettle is on. Camping was a different experience this year as we were in the disabled camping area, the biggest plus was it was so much nearer the venues.

Tent up
Kettle on
Music play
Happy day

last month's view

I hope to restart blogging soon but have been somewhat incapacitated for the last month.


A broken ankle has made taking photos rather difficult, it's hard enough to walk with crutches without trying to balance to take photos too. The painkillers have addled my brain which has made thinking hard...
