Grateful for Hospitality

I am grateful on this day, 
Saturday 11th December 2010,
for Hospitality

A week ago tonight 
I was sleeping 
in this bed
It was kindly given up for me
after a lovely day of

girlfriend gathering,
 celebrations
and Dior Exhibition
Beautiful Model Daughter


My contribution today for
A Virgin A Day

Silent Night by David Cawthorne 


I was touched by this simple painting
and inspired as
the artist is one of a number of
Mouth Painters
@

Beautiful Virgins to be found at ~

Oh yes, the Virgin Mother, being just that. Wonderful painting no matter how the artist held the tools. Great post.

Peace to you Ms. Foxy

Sue,
I love coming here and seeing your friends and family. It warms my heart in a way you cannot imagine. It is like visiting really because you offer such an openness in doing it. Thank you. I am grateful for that! I love this little nativity scene and I am reminded of Christy Brown and the story of 'My Left Foot' if you are familiar with it. My own mother had Parkinson's disease and found that drawing and painting was something that gave her great joy and solace. I love that you posted this. Thank you for your lovely words on my blog yesterday.
xoxo,
Noelle

your painting looks Batik. I love the simplicity

I was thinking the same thing as Deb - batik. I was surprised to see that it was painted by mouth. The control is spectacular. I've also been meaning to asking you were you found the wonderful advent calendar.

I love today's virgin, and even more when I learned that it is mouth-painted. It is so beautiful and touching at the same time.

What courage and determination this artist has to paint this beautiful nativity scene.

There is no limit as to what we can do if we just let ourselves discover them! The mouth painting is very humbling along with a sense of awe.
Our attitudes and beliefs (or lack thereof I suppose) are our greatest limitations.
What a lovely trip you seemed to have had!

Hello

A friendly street light
illuminates the dark path
as does bright hellos!




Just dropping in dears to say hello to all at Haiku my Heart, everyone in the haiku home, to say you are never far away from my thoughts those of you in the circle of friends in the birthplace of my ongoing love for small words with large meaning.
Have a lovely weekend... love from foxysue

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…

Navigating Home

Well here I am again!  Wonder of wonders that I am even showing up at all in this little blog wilderness having uprooted my faithful old friend Finding my Bliss by way of messing up the template!  The one who safely sailed me through Bloglandia for all of those years was interfered with in an abrupt manner (see previous post).   I know it may sound silly but I feel like I am grieving for what was my sanctuary and residence, I am feeling kind of lost with nothing familiar to cling to, but alas I do have one place that is very much like home and so there I will share a little haiku with my friends...
By way of haiku navigate a place called home the 'heart' gathering...
On the subject of home and the insecurity of having no solid ground to tread on, that's where I am finding myself at present as I'm in the throws of purchasing a new home and going through a very sticky patch with the legalities of it all.  It's going at a snail's pace and I'm getting frustrated …
