Alice, in wonderland ...

Dreaming of blossom   
and flowers
and springtime
and love ...
Clean cotton sheets,
'neath candlewick bedspread,
wide open window,
God up above ...
Netting blows
in warm fragrant breeze,
father whistling,
my world at ease ...
Mama's soft fingers
gently thumbing through curls,
peepers close tight,
dreaming unfurls
Beautiful  Alice
 April's Perpetual Petal
(would have been 90 years today)

This is a beautiful tribute to your mother, Sue my dear. She was a lovely woman and I can see such a resemblance between the two of you. The love you have for her and the security she gave you is palpable. Thank you for sharing this memory.
Love,
Noelle

You are so inventive in your images.
She would have been proud of you for many reasons, not least for the tribute today.

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.
