Here it is, my 1st blog post.
Well technically its my 100th blog post as writing them (mostly for other people) was my job before forest school.
But this is a special one because it is the first on forestschooljess.co.uk and this website means a lot to me. I hope that it goes some way to furthering the forest school message and that it becomes a useful resource for my fellow practitioners or trainees.
I’ve spent a lot of time marketing and communicating for other people, compromising my own voice in an effort to best represent theirs. I love the ability to do that and do it well, I like establishing a clear brand message and delivering. It makes writing pieces to ‘fit’ much easier, but I miss being able to form my own thoughts and opinions.
However the idea of them becoming public makes me think of the above image; being on the edge, vulnerable, open to a torrent all set to carry me away. Then I remember how I felt in the moment that picture was taken; calm, intrigued, present, noticing the bubbles, textures and wonder of nature.
So I had a ‘warm up’ run at it and I didn’t get swept away.
