Journey to Self

Today I found myself wondering again
about my artistic expression,
this happens periodically.
When I was younger I thought
art was art
you either like to draw, paint, sculpt etc.
end of story!
NO
beginning of story for me
beginning of journey
beginning of ongoing enquiry
!!!
Although I have always been creative,
it used to remain mostly in the areas of 
design, technique.
I may have been subliminally conscious of something other,
something that separates it from the purely decorative,
but it hadn't dawned on me that
there was a difference!
That it was up to me to
discover what that difference was,
and why it mattered,
matters for me
!!!

Isn't it wonderful how our journeys deepen as we get older? We thought we had it all figured out when we were younger. Oh, how little we knew...

so rich of blossom and full of depth....
so looking with in and with out,
and so perfectly generous to take us along.

I like the fact that you are taking a photograph and then becoming immersed in the very thing which you are photographing, so much so that you disappear altogether and become a butterfly upon a flower ~ the ultimate symbol of soul transformation in Jungian psychology. I think that you have expressed with beautiful intention the profound difference between the decorative and the truly creative endeavor. Lovely.

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-…

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…
