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.

Norwegian Dreamscape Expanded

Meditation Morn
My Dreamscape Meanderings
Heavenly pass~time 

I rose early the first morning at dawn, although I'm not sure if it was dawn really as Norway is after all the land of the midnight sun!  Anyway it was an exceptional time to experience the fjords we were told so I crept out of the cabin, being careful not to disturb my sleeping partner and up onto the open deck.   I was the first to appear, only the staff were out arranging the loungers. What a wonderful feeling almost alone on this massive liner feeling totally in awe of both my traveling home and the deep fjord waters we were slipping silently through.

I climbed up the stairs to the highest deck and stood in absolute amazement at the sheer beauty of this place, I thought I could hear some kind of faint mysterious musical notes, to this day I'm still not sure whether this was my imagination going into overdrive at the whole mystical experience or a distant melody carrying through on the air.....

Shadow Land & Spontaneity

Usually in photography I practice the concept of noticing the moments and what arises and arrives spontaneously as opposed to a staging experience i.e. purposefully choosing a subject to capture. Picking up the camera when something hits my radar of perception is second nature and this in turn mostly leads to the pleasurable treasures of intuitive photography.  Recently due to the exceptional brilliance of the autumn sun through my windows there have been lots of opportunities to capture the clarity of shadows or their subtlety for that matter! Shadow photography is a favourite form of imaging for me.  However, I wanted to make the shots a little more defined for added interest so this lead me to try manufacturing the outcome, or in other words staging!  This doesn't come naturally to me during a photography experience for it touches on the subject of control, taking me out of the comfort zone of going with a meditative flow and into the area of thinking or a cognitive interrupti…
