The Green Man

Sculpture : The Green Man by Lydia Kapinsky, 1999.
University of London, Gordon Square gardens,

“My roots go down to the depths of the world, through earth dry brick,
and damp earth, through veins of lead and silver. I am all fibre”

“I am as green as a yew tree in the shade of the hedge. My hair is made
of leaves. I am rooted to the middle of the earth. My body is a stalk.
I press the stalk”.

“the roots make a skeleton on the ground, with dead leaves heaped in the angles”.

Extracts from The Waves, by Virginia Woolf, 1931

A piece of cake – Ruabon Moor and Llangollen

My blogs have two main purposes – to promote Trail Running and to promote the wonderful and varied countryside within a short distance of Chester. Today I revisited one of my favourite areas to try and patch-in a short stretch to make an ideal training circuit. This area also happens to be one of the most spectacular.
