Wool Trail

We leave trails behind us as we walk through the world, but we often don’t realise. Tiny hints and clues reveal our path to those who know how to look.

Hi, I'm Seonaid, and I share my home on the shores of Loch Ness deep in the Scottish Highlands with my husband, my son and a couple of dogs. I love art which is here now and gone tomorrow...like food and nature...but also have a passion for vintage and the ancient past! Nature is my favourite muse, with her wild ever shifting seasons. I have been using and teaching mindfulness and relaxation for over 12 years, and have yet to become any sort of expert :-) I'm a Psychotherapist and Cancer Support Specialist in Maggies Highlands

    We spent 3 weeks in Ireland two summers ago, and everywhere we went my boys insisted on picking up the bits of sheep fur we’d find. Their idea was to make a sweater from it. We still have a big glass far full of wool – but have yet to turn it into a sweater. On our nature walks we always keep an eye out for signs – be they deer droppings, bird prints on a river bank, woodpecker holes on a tree, whatever. It sharpens their eyes and lets them see the wonder in what isn’t, but was.

    This is beautiful and has reminded me just how important it is to NOTICE the little things in nature. This takes a lot of practice, a keen eye and a curious mind. Thank you.

    • Thanks Caro, what a lovely comment. It’s the little things which often matter most, and I guess it’s easy to over look them. These wool streamers caught my eye in the wind….and got me wondering 🙂

  4. I’m curious about the source of the wool … are these bits from nearby sheep that took flight in the wind? The lighter-colored material says ‘yes,’ while the bluish material says ‘no.’ D
