It’s the depth of winter. Cold, dark and grey. But amidst the gloom, I have been busy expanding the Tejvan fruit, veg and flower empire. I have built another planter. I was working so hard, I broke my spade, hence the humorous juxtaposition of spade and head. (bottom)
The greatest excitement of November 2020 is building a new planter for my front garden. I have spent most of 2020 looking out of front window so I got inspired to do something different. Out went the beautiful tree, in came this new planter.
This promo for 2020 national hill climb was shot last autumn by local film maker, Maciek Tomiczek. I feature going up Chinnor hill.
I also fancied submitting a video to Gardener’s World viewers videos, so I made this video. But, I don’t think it is good enough. On the positive side it showed I needed to get the hair clippers out again and finish off the back of my head.
Every year, I follow the Sri Chinmoy 3100 Mile Self-Transcendence Race from a distance. This year seemed a particularly good edition. I know Nirbhasa (who finished in 2nd place) and so you can relate to the runners even more.
This year the race also received excellent coverage on the BBC. A foreign friend said – look how spiritual Britain is to have an article like that on its main national newsite.
That made me laugh because when you look at the political situation of Britain, spiritual development isn’t the first thing that springs to mind!
