Happy Again

Well it's that time again, soon comes around does
Happy Friday

I so look forward to posting,
it focuses the mind on all the little moments of happiness
I sometimes  take for granted. 
So first of all a big thank you to

Jamie
for weekly happy focusing.


This week I'm happy to be back in my sweet pod, in my home with my love after my 'mini me retreat', and of course my two boys Dougal & Jasper I missed all three boys so very much, not sure which one the most!
Garden's come on leaps and bounds since being away, got a bit glum a few weeks back the garden took such a beating after the hard frost winter, we lost several shrubs. 
 I had a bit of a sulk on with it, but all is forgiven now!
First Summer Rose

  Oh yes, I know which boy I missed the most, the one who made a sail to shade me from the sun, as I sit among the apple trees of an evening sipping my vino!

What a beautiful post. The rose is incredible. It is nice to come home even after a "mini me retreat" which sounds wonderful. Have a great week.

Wow that's some rose. I know what you mean about the garden. I lost a really lovely shrub and I don't even know what it was called. At the moment I am tackling my yearly battle with the bindweed which climbs up my roses... One day I'll get rid of it... one day...

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-…

Shadow Land & Spontaneity

Usually in photography I practice the concept of noticing the moments and what arises and arrives spontaneously as opposed to a staging experience i.e. purposefully choosing a subject to capture. Picking up the camera when something hits my radar of perception is second nature and this in turn mostly leads to the pleasurable treasures of intuitive photography.  Recently due to the exceptional brilliance of the autumn sun through my windows there have been lots of opportunities to capture the clarity of shadows or their subtlety for that matter!
