For me this period of lockdown is a time to rekindle my interest in historical characters. In particular those individuals who used the medium of writing to reach kindred spirits. One such person was John Ruskin (1819-1900). He wrote about the connections between nature and society. Topical in today’s situation… He produced essays, pamphlets and books to connect with a wide audience. His last home Brantwood, along with it’s gardens is one of my favourite places to spend a few quiet hours.
The prompt photograph to me, highlights the disconnect between nature and humanity.
For the present due to a virus!, Brantwood is temporarily closed.
