This is my letter of Three Beautiful Things.

Every week, I send a letter about three beautiful things - fascinating, curious, alluring, inspiring and strange - something different to enjoy and look forward to.

I try to make it feel like a letter from a friend, and it’s easy to unsubscribe.

All issues will be free. Each new letter will remain online at for 7 days, before entering the archive.

Access to the archive of letters is available via a monthly subscription of £3 or an annual subscription of £18. By supporting Beautiful Things, you are helping the project stay alive. Paid subscribers can also comment on the letters.

Let me tell you a little secret...

I struggle with this modern world and always have, but especially now. I long to be connected to nature, to the land. When I am connected, it's the only time I truly feel alive.
