Wildwood COTD : 9, The Hooded Man

This has to be my favourite card! And in amongst the rushing around in preparation for tomorrow, comes the quiet, still figure of The Hooded Man (yes, cue the Clannad theme Tune for RoS). The little wren on the rock also offers guidance to the place of sanctuary: a reminder to take it easy and find the time to relax from the hustle and bustle of right now.

I find it incredible that five years ago, I was in the early stages of labour. Tomorrow, my eldest will be five years old. It seems like a long time, five years, but they have passed us by so quickly. So much has been learnt, so much is still to be learned. I’m looking forward to the next 5 years with my eldest and his younger brother.

And yet, no matter how many times I see this card, I do still want to pull that hood back and see who is underneath it!
