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.

Norwegian Dreamscape Expanded

Meditation Morn
My Dreamscape Meanderings
Heavenly pass~time 


I rose early the first morning at dawn, although I'm not sure if it was dawn really as Norway is after all the land of the midnight sun!  Anyway it was an exceptional time to experience the fjords we were told so I crept out of the cabin, being careful not to disturb my sleeping partner and up onto the open deck.   I was the first to appear, only the staff were out arranging the loungers. What a wonderful feeling almost alone on this massive liner feeling totally in awe of both my traveling home and the deep fjord waters we were slipping silently through.

I climbed up the stairs to the highest deck and stood in absolute amazement at the sheer beauty of this place, I thought I could hear some kind of faint mysterious musical notes, to this day I'm still not sure whether this was my imagination going into overdrive at the whole mystical experience or a distant melody carrying through on the air.....

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!
