In this modern period of climate catastrophe it's so worrying just how fast weather conditions vary. If we get any snow at all it comes and goes in a matter of days. Although still 'cold' water, the sea temperatures are unseasonably warm, and the winds and gales seem relentless.
And yet, to keep my mind sane, I have to imagine that whatever I see happening in the hills and sea, is just normal. I see snow and pretend I can't see climate change. I see no snow, and pretend I can't see climate change, for whatever the awful situation on our planet, I still see the weather, I still see nature, I still see the incredible landscapes and the wonderful sea. I have to keep pretending that everything is OK.
