seeks a 'healing salve'?

This is deep and profound. I had to ask Mrs S to help me with it. Fascinating photo too.

Have a nice day, Boonie

It's so rewarding when we can use our words for comfort and healing, to touch another.

dear sue, forgive me for this late visitation. it
has been a long long day and i am only now making the haiku rounds. i went to your link...and my heart froze. there is no way to comprehend any act of violence and this one crushes on the hearts of so many.
so much beauty and promise cut short.....
a great loss to all.

i love your compassion. you are a comfort candle
on a cold dark night.

I am so deeply sorry. I left a message on Carola's blog. I don't know what else to do. Such a deep and profound and tragic loss. Thank you for being such a comfort and light to your friend.
Blessings and Love,

Sue, I just saw this post. I can't tell you how touched I feel. I'm actually sitting here, crying. I had no idea that you had a post for me and links to my blog telling about Katie and Jesus. Thank you so much, my dear friend, and to everybody who left comments here. It IS of great comfort.
For us it is still rather unreal, we struggle to comprehend it all. However, we (Katie's family and mine) talk a lot about Katie and how we remember her. It belongs to the healing process, and it's good to laugh together when we remember her quirky sense of humor. Thank you to all of you.

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 …
