Grateful for Water

I am grateful on this day, 
Tuesday, 7th December 2010,
for Water


We are still snowbound,
the car is stuck on the drive 
and the water pipes are frozen!


I'm not able to use my washing machine!
The shower is out of use too,
and 
the temperature is not set to rise 
until the weekend!



Having said all of that
I'm still grateful,  
we have water piped 
to our house
most of the time!
Beautiful
Precious 
Water!




For those of you who 
enquired
and wished me a lovely weekend
in the BIG CITY,
the 'Dior Exhibition',
yes it was wonderful
Thank you

Water, the life blood of the Sacred Eartrh Mother. Ironically, that will be my "Virgin" tomorrow. Hope you get thawed out soon. I know how this is as I have had similar experiences when I moved to the Northland in 1974 an a young naive man and tried to tame the weather without knowledge or fear.
I love the image you posted. I would love to see a painting such as this in person someday. Great post.

Peace.

Oh, brrrrrrrr!!!!! And, frozen pipes to boot! But, it doesn give one a chance to stop and appreciate what we really have, doesn't it?
I love the image you posted too-beautiful!

Yes, water is so precious. Before 2010 we went through three years of droughts in a row. It's scary. And so many people just take it for granted and waste is thoughtlessly.
I hope you will "thaw" soon and get back your "normal" water.

Water and a beautiful Brugel to boot. There are so many things to be thankful for. I'll have to look at Gratitude Tuesdays.

Good evening Sue. Difficult times for you but you have created beauty and focused on gratitude daily knowing that help is not far away if needed. The Brugel Madonna is beautiful.

I love every picture, and every sentiment. Thank you for heightening my awareness of beautiful things to hold with gratitude!
Stay warm, and take good care,

Is that all the Dior we are going to get out of you??
More Dior please. You did take your camera I presume?
No washing is good washing. It can wait.

I am grateful for the water at your home this evening as I have none at my own home...

Sue,
Incredibly beautiful photos. I especially love the trees with the window superimposed. So lovely it takes my breath away. I am sorry that the weather is encroaching upon you and that you are having to depend upon your own resources to stay warm and clean. I appreciate the fact that you still share such beauty and gratitude with us. We are forever grateful for you.
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. 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-…

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…

Snuggling up till spring...

Comfy and cosy
feeling all loved up in the
comfort of haiku...



Just a quick line this week but thought I'd mention 'Doris' the storm that hit our shores.  On our walk through the church yard this morning there was quite a bit of damage, mainly to the trees up-rooting one altogether so that's why my Jasper and me are snuggling up till spring...

Happy weekend all haiku lovers...
