I celebrated my first birthday by, I am told, walking for the first time. I like to think that I toddled out into a field although in reality I was probably carried there and plopped down. But however I arrived there it was then and has always been a place that I love to be. In a field, surrounded by grasses and wild flowers, close to the water, is perfection for me. At the age of one I knew where I wanted to be.
