It started with shells. Wandering the beach, a small sandlark, bucket in hand, was how I remember a lot of my time spent as a small child. I think two years old is the first photo my parents have of me engaged in this pursuit - probably quite a common one for most children growing up in coastal regions. It soon escalated to sea glass and then to pebbles, and branched out from the beach to moorland and mountains - wherever there are pebbles to be found, I can be found there admiring them. It's an issue with sticks too, but that's a separate story.
Lockdown = loss of: control, socialising, structure, positivity, freedom, things to look forward to
Lockdown = extra: anxiety, confusion, restriction, unknown, uncertainty
I was very aware that I was lucky to have extra time on my hands this year, due to the pandemic. I was also aware, however, that without structure I can start to spiral downhill very quickly.
