A letter from Suzy



I decided some time ago that I would have a look at the book
'The Artist's Way' by Julia Cameron - why? Because so many other writers referred to her work as being a 'superlative' in creative discovery and recovery.

I'm wanting to propel my own creative potential forward as part of my personal development. I've decided to embark on her 12 week course as outlined in the book. I'm working through chapter 4
'Discovering a sense of Integrity'.

One of this week's tasks in 'Buried Dreams' is to take yourself back in time remembering your childhood and the things you loved and what made you happy, then to write a letter to yourself at your present age telling you what to do!

As a child my life was full of theatrical fantasy, always wanting to perform, an errand to the shop for my mother could be a balancing scooter act, speeding down the pavement with shopping bag on handle, gracefully poised with one leg stretched behind in some ballerina pose. New tap shoes meant I had to show-off my special dancing talent, I would rehearse for ages on the garden path hoping the boys next door would see me. Of-course my favourite performance had to be the acrobatic swing displays from the old Oak tree at the top of the garden, I even organised my own show for this spectacle, tickets and all!

Hello

A friendly street light
illuminates the dark path
as does bright hellos!




Just dropping in dears to say hello to all at Haiku my Heart, everyone in the haiku home, to say you are never far away from my thoughts those of you in the circle of friends in the birthplace of my ongoing love for small words with large meaning.
Have a lovely weekend... love from foxysue

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 …

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...
