Even canal water creates reflections. Read Miranda’s news from the Macclesfield cut.

Miranda Cowan was a participant on the ‘Sense of Place’ seminar I ran last autumn at the Derbyshire Eco centre.

Miranda has clearly carried on reflecting about the significance of places as she sent the little piece from a canal boat at Gurnet viaduct on the Macclesfield canal .

I thought it was worth sharing:

Well, if i may say, its an interesting one for me. I am on a boat journey and i have familiar stopping points, but like to explore the OS for creative alternative routes to collect van / trains to work. This eve i cruised in the rain, other boaters looking from their windows within the comfort of their space. They had no perception of my happiness, the more soaked i became, the more i smiled: the rain brings the moss alive and there is peace in the atmosphere. I am now moored on a viaduct overlooking original tiled roofs of old cottages and grazed pasture. I can hear the sheep pull the grass in the morning and the ducks work their way down my hull cleaning debris by the water line. Thats my sense of space for today, the joy of simplicity and and allowing my mind to rest : )

Thanks for that, its becoming a creative writing class….great to express….life can be so constrained …………..

    I do think that you should publish more on this subject matter,
    it may not be a taboo matter but usually people don’t talk about these issues. To the next! Many thanks!!
