Caught by the river
POSTED: January 18, 2020
Today I discovered caughtbytheriver.net, because I received a link to a reflective article there about Tove Jansson.
I looked at the About page and discovered that
Caught by the River is an arts/nature/culture clash, posting daily at caughtbytheriver.net. It began as an idea, a vision and a daydream shared between friends one languid bankside spring afternoon.
It was conceived as an online meeting place for pursuits of a distinctly non-digital variety: walking, fishing, looking, thinking. Birdsong and beer. Adventure and poetry. Life’s small pleasures, in all their many flavours. It was – and still is – about stepping out of daily routines to re-engage with nature. Finding new rhythms. Being.
Now in its twelfth year, Caught by the River is ever-morphing, widening its tastes and pool of contributors.
I then noticed that they issue a fortnightly email newsletter and subscribed immediately. I thought to tell Jake, who might want to subscribe.
As might you.
