Big Cedar Lake, WI – You’ll think I’ve moved to the U.K. when you see this list because somehow, I’ve been charmed by the landscape and the people. See what you think.
Book: The Last Wilderness by Neil Ansell
In 2008 my closest friend and I walked many, many miles in Scotland – you may remember our lovely Mist of the Moor Soap, which was designed on that walk. Having walked that land, I felt an immediate connection to Neil’s walks on the very western Knoydart Peninnsula. It is as though I am also on his journey through the glens and up and down the hills. If you are a fan of travel by foot, I think you would enjoy this quiet read.
Podcast: Ffern: As the Season Turns by Lia Leendertz
I was again charmed by this quietly engaging podcast that celebrates the seasons and all that happens in them. This podcast is released on the first of each month by Ffern, and organic perfume maker in Somerset, England. I make time each Sunday afternoons to work on a creative project and listen to a podcast from 2022 as well.
