In my last Blog Post I talked about Time…and the clocks springing forward. It’s odd really. We are now in what is called British Summer Time here in the UK…but all around us we are seeing the signs of Spring.
Have you noticed them? Blossom? New flowers? Birds nesting? You might not have had a chance to stop and think about these signs…but they are symbols of a secret that nature is waking up again and new things are ‘springing’ into life.
I’ve talked a lot in the Blog about how the Secret Breakers and indeed the characters in River of Ink are always on the lookout for symbols in the world around them. It’s true they tend to reply on permanent symbols and signs…like things in architecture and buildings. But of course they use signs in the natural world too. In Book Three of Secret Breakers, The Knights of Neustria, the team rely heavily on signs they see in a tree…and surrounding a river! So if you want to join the Secret Breakers and be a real Knight of Neustria, then do check out signs in the natural world too. Take time to have a look at how the world is changing all around you…and how new secrets that have been hidden in the dark and cold of winter are being shared! (This, after all, is where all the best stories come from!) If you do this then you really will be a member of Team Veritas!
Happy Secret Breaking Everyone!
