Highgate Wood

One of the ornamental gates at Highgate Wood

Highgate Wood, North London
This place is a dear old friend - I was there for a while this morning with the Muswell Hill dog-walkers and joggers. I lived very close by for two decades; my children played here, I walked here often with my dear friend Chris, who opened so many doors (of knowledge and perception) but sadly wasn't able to see me walk through them later down the line. This place is in my heart and in my soul - an ancient woodland tucked away in our capital city.

I dedicate this post to Hope - my little grand-daughter who came into the world at 3.15pm on July 26th 2008. May she love these woods as she grows, the future is hers.
