Stepping out Sunday
though nation is mourning, we
put best foot forward...




Today before posting my daily haiku on Instagram I was shocked to learn of yet another terror attack in the capital city London, 7 slaughtered and 48 injured, this only days after the Manchester killings. At the very moment I was viewing this on-line a pigeon, in flight, slammed into my window causing me to feel a sudden fear, heightening the fear- feeling for those innocent people... Later the prime-minister Theresa May declared on a news bulletin that "enough is enough" and that new measures must be taken to counter this....  As she counted out four ways these measures must take place I was feeling a sense of frustration that no doubt countless millions of others must feel in the face of these senseless acts of violence. I was thinking what can I as one person do? 
My small act of posting one image on Instagram with the above haiku seemed so insignificant and I felt the message of "stepping out r…

Navigating Home

Well here I am again!  Wonder of wonders that I am even showing up at all in this little blog wilderness having uprooted my faithful old friend Finding my Bliss by way of messing up the template!  The one who safely sailed me through Bloglandia for all of those years was interfered with in an abrupt manner (see previous post).   I know it may sound silly but I feel like I am grieving for what was my sanctuary and residence, I am feeling kind of lost with nothing familiar to cling to, but alas I do have one place that is very much like home and so there I will share a little haiku with my friends...
By way of haiku navigate a place called home the 'heart' gathering...
On the subject of home and the insecurity of having no solid ground to tread on, that's where I am finding myself at present as I'm in the throws of purchasing a new home and going through a very sticky patch with the legalities of it all.  It's going at a snail's pace and I'm getting frustrated …

Kick-starting my Mojo

Hi to anyone who's out there, anyone who's listening!
I will forgive you for thinking you are in the wrong place because that's how it feels to me too...




I had gotten so stuck in the mud with the old look Finding my Bliss blogspot that I had to do something about it, I needed to get my mojo back and so the idea was to go for a new look template. That's when disaster struck, yikes!  The seven years of my beautiful blog nearly went down the plug hole, that is to say I nearly deleted her after everything got into an almighty muddle...   All of the formatting I had painstakingly laboured over on previous posts to get 'the look' now looked extremely messy... Just one click of the delete button was so very near!  I thought who will bother to read it anyway after all of this time in limbo and now that blogging is not cutting edge anymore and most of my previous contacts have already given up, why should I continue and why should I sort it out anyway?  But I got the be…

Snuggling up till spring...

Comfy and cosy
feeling all loved up in the
comfort of haiku...



Just a quick line this week but thought I'd mention 'Doris' the storm that hit our shores.  On our walk through the church yard this morning there was quite a bit of damage, mainly to the trees up-rooting one altogether so that's why my Jasper and me are snuggling up till spring...

Happy weekend all haiku lovers...

On Words

On grey, wavering days
be opening your gate to love
speak consolingly...



It's a whole month since I posted here and to tell you the truth it's hard, very hard... I so want to carry on posting but what with the lack of 'blogtivity' these days I'm finding it depressing. I knew things would take on a downward spiral when bloggers began to switch off their comments buttons for whatever reason, internet trolls etc... I don't really understand this? If anyone would like to enlighten me on something I'm missing? Personally I feel if people take the time to read my posts at my invitation then surely it is a two way street that should allow for response and feedback which builds up and strengthen the bonds of communication so needed in our world...
Now after my little rant, getting that off of my chest I'm glad to report while on the subject of communication and words that I'm feeling a really positive vibe about my latest endeavor into the world of Instagram,…

Happy Haiku New Year

Bare winter branches bathed in mystical moonshine stirring some magic!

Hello and a Happy New Year to you and yours...

I feel like a stranger to this online space it being nearly two months since I last tapped the keys here. I've been living a kind of nomadic existence recently flitting between houses with the addition of my new little tin home that perches on a Welsh hillside overlooking the ocean. What with Christmas and New Year I have been sleeping in random beds! The acquisition of my tin home is something I have dreamed about for ages and now it has come to pass so I've been bathing in ocean magic....

Something else that has kept me creatively occupied lately is my regular postings on Instagram, I have taken to posting haiku and images there as a meditative practice which satisfies both my need to create and also to focus, I have set the intention to continue this practice for 2017 and also to research the subject, perhaps write about my findings here as I believe this art-…

A Winged Haiku

Winged things on my mind
bringing messages of peace
but mostly of TRUST




#Artistsforloveis an on-line movement where the overriding principle is one of love and belonging to which I am happy to add my name....   Also linking with Haiku my Heart ~ the Home of inclusion.Recuerda mi Corazon
