Not Feeling IT

I'm home
but not feeling it!
The picture is blurred and out of focus.
As usual I find change downright difficult!
I think it might be saying goodbye to the ocean,
I feel like I've left a part of me behind.

I soooo know the feeling, Sue. We who are attached to the ocean but cannot live by it, suffer a bit. I have been separated from my beloved Pacific for 35 years with only occasional visits to punctuate the separation. Returning home from the ocean is never easy.

I particularly like the one of the child looking out to sea.

i grew up on the coastline of california. my entire life was married to the sea. i even worked on the QeII for many years and sailed around the world. it was a constant coming and going. opening up and letting go. i realized the most important way to anywhere was to be fully present...and giving of myself. knowing i had set some wheel in motion for goodness, that i had breathed in as deeply and fully where i was in each moment helped me except the departure and embrace the arrival. you are almost in a new country every day when you live on a ship...
but then we wake to life and leave our dreams, only to lay down at the end of that living and return to dreaming once more.

i love you in my waking and in my dreaming.

Hello

A friendly street light
illuminates the dark path
as does bright hellos!




Just dropping in dears to say hello to all at Haiku my Heart, everyone in the haiku home, to say you are never far away from my thoughts those of you in the circle of friends in the birthplace of my ongoing love for small words with large meaning.
Have a lovely weekend... love from foxysue

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 …
