Grateful for Cherished Moments

I am grateful on this day, 
Wednesday, 15th December 2010, 
for Cherished Moments
.
I'm writing about this before the thoughts escape me, 
before they float off into the ether.

.

This morning much like any other morning started by seeing Charlotte off to work,
 she's staying with us whilst her bathroom is being renovated,

Over the past three years she has 
stayed with us on and off
 since coming back from life in the big city, all battered and bruised.
She's been on her healing path ever since.


Lately life has taken a leap forward for her
after two years or so out of work,
after pulling herself up off of the ground,
after preparing and putting herself through rigorous interviews,
she landed herself the perfect job
 at the University of Derby!!!
and
She's met someone who is making her happy!!!


This morning I packed her off to work, 
it was Christmas lunch day,
 I ironed her frilly blouse
 thinking how lovely she was going to look,
she had no earrings to go with, 
so I fetched her a pair of mine.
She looked gorgeous as she 
walked through the door,
we kissed and hugged.


I wrote all of this down 
because these are cherished moments.

We've been through 
a very tough journey together
and 
these are precious moments to savour,
to wrap in special delicate wrapping,
for these precious moments
I'm grateful.

A Winged Haiku

Winged things on my mind
bringing messages of peace
but mostly of TRUST

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-…

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... 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…
