The Full Worm Moon

Hi, am back in blogland now after my decorating break, my kitchen is all clean, sparkly and new, so now I can spend more time 'blissing out' and getting 'really' creative. My first creative spurt was to assemble my vision board contribution to Jamie Ridler's group of Dreamboarders. Visit Jamie Ridler

Sunday afternoon was spent finding images, words and colours that spoke to me intuitively. Sunday evening was spent intuitively arranging them onto a board - I like the whole process to be unintentional so I can look at my board and see what is reflected back. It's a bit like reading the tea leaves - I remember mum doing this as a girl when there was no such a thing as tea bags! After drinking the tea turning the cup upside down on the saucer to see how the leaves arranged themselves on the side of the cup to reveal a story!

My board reflects back to me:

The dual personality of the child both with the beaming, happy face looking forward and the sad countenance of her alter ego. Reminding me life is never one way, accepting oneself and these moments, at the same time knowing there is always affirming encouragement out there as with these little text reminders.

I'm not usually one for the whimsical and would mostly resist it in my artwork but somehow the butterflies appeared on my board! Is that because one fluttered by our window recently bidding on spring? Is that what is stirring in me? Or do they represent an element of freedom like the window and the books, my usual escape routes?

So all-in-all another amazing journey to within, via the 'Worm Moon'.

BTW - My boy Jasper (my little Lhasa Apso see pic on blog) who sleeps on my bed was sat upright last night staring out the window at the moonlight, which is very unusual for him, he's usually curled up as soon as his little head touches the duvet. It made me feel very in touch with him and nature and all the energy that binding us together.

What a beautiful connection to you, to what's stirring, to your little fella and to the moon! May all of your dreams come true!

Love the images and the words behind them.
Lots of full worm moonbeams to you!

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-…

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…
