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.

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-…

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…
