Home Sweet Home

I am grateful on this day, 
Monday 6th December 2010,
for my 'home sweet home'...
where my love always 
makes sure the
'home fire' is burning bright ...
keeping our toes toastie
melting our 'yeti boots'!

You provided us with a "two for" today. Both are moving and deeply meaningful. Bellini's is a favorite of mine.

Is this the same Bellini that made the canopy in St. Peter's Basilica?

You have a beautiful home and hearth and it is made all the more so by the love and gratitude that resides within. The outside photo looks like a Christmas card, so lovely, and your pup is incredibly sweet. Your photo of the virgin is magnificent, rich and interesting. I love the name, "Madonna of the Small Trees".
xo,
Noelle

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.

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-…

Stepping out Sunday

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…
