Reflection: Picking Blackberries

Blackberry Patch Rural Country Farm by Walt Curlee (1)

"Come on" I can hear you shout. "What has picking blackberries to do with taking time to reflect!".


We can think back to when we were little and went picking blackberries with our parents.

I can think back to this time last year when I was in England and picked some blackberries that grew along the side of an English lane.

I can even think forward to a time, not too distant in the future I hope, when I'll be able to go to the berry farms not far from where I live and pick strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries.

And I can think how I am going to eat these berries: straight from the bowl or in a pie!

Please sit back and watch the Art to Picking Blackberries.

And for those of you who love to cook - a Blackberry Pie recipe.

What did you reflect on? What did you learn?

I learnt that if I'm looking into a tangled mess I can try to come at it from different angles and therein hopefully discover a gem.

Something to reflect on!
