About me

I love to explore – whether it is the beauty of the world around me or new thoughts and ideas. So I have created Ripples in the Wind as a place to share some of the many thoughts, inspirations and musings that ripple through my mind and heart.

I live in Somerset (UK) with my husband, where I enjoy being surrounded by beautiful countryside. We have three girls, now in their twenties, and attend the local Methodist Church. Several years ago, following an acute viral illness, I became seriously ill and was diagnosed with severe ME/CFS. I have made a substantial recovery since then,  but continue to suffer symptoms of weakness, fatigue and brain fog.

Since my youth I have been an aspiring God-gazer – a term which I have borrowed from Malcolm Duncan. I heard his poem at Spring Harvest a few years ago and it captured my heart, saying so much of what I would have liked to say far better than I could ever say it. I don’t claim to have made it to the place of which he speaks, but his words remain an inspiration that ripples deep within.

I want to be a God-gazer

until my imagination is saturated;

until my thirst is sated;

until my passion is stirred;

until my intellect is stretched

as far as it can be;

until my yearning yearns

for others to be free…

Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope you enjoy what you find.

    Ros, this is Laura again.. I was wondering when I do the shout out for your blog within my post tomorrow, if I may have permission to use your first paragraph here in your “About page” to tell my readers about you. I’ve drafted up the post and will wait to hear back from you. I’ve also let them know those are all your words, too… Have a glorious evening there my dear..

    Hugs from Laura ~

      Hi there. Thank you 🙂 Yes, I did have a quick look. However, I had a very busy (for me) weekend and have spent most of the past few days recovering, so it may be a little while before I respond. I already have another blog post waiting to be written that I’d like to get done first…
