Advent Calendar of Gratitude #3

I am grateful on this day, 
Friday, 3rd December 2010,
to see through mind's eye
beautiful, soft souls sparkle
jewels on angora


I'm going to be traveling to London today
with my daughter Charlotte, weather permitting!
We'll be meeting with some of her young friends to visit the
Dior Illustration Exhibition
I'm so privileged and grateful!
.
It's snowing so I'll be wearing my pink angora hat with jewels!
just right for the capital hey?!

A Virgin A Day


Head of the Madonna, detail plate 26
The Artist Botticelli is without doubt my favourite
when it comes to the beauty of the Madonna.


Will be posting my gratitude over the weekend,
though it may be Monday before
I can respond to any comments or haiku posts.

You lucky thing!
If you mamage to get there that is.
If I were so lucky as to see the Dior exhib, I would wear my husband's ancient silk Dior tie (which I splashed out on decades hence). I wore Armani to the Armani exhibition (second-hand glory) way back and felt terrific.
Take care on the journey and may Mary protect you.

Have a wonderful trip seeing the Dior Exhibit and donning that pink angora and pin. Hope someone takes a picture of that!
Love the Botticelli image. Appreciate the fact that it is a closeup as then one can truly appreciate and soak it all in.
Such beauty!

A pink angora hat! Wow! Yes, that's the right attire. Hope you get through to London and don't get stuck in the snow! I love London, one of my favorite cities.

My soft soul sparkles when I read, work in my art journals, play with my grandkids, walking my dog--and that's the tip of the iceberg.

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!

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-…

The thinnest of threads

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...

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…
