Postcards from Paradise #13 ~ Quiet Contemplation

Rainy days,
 quiet contemplation, sitting with stillness,
wondering about the journey.....

It's okay to sit, to be quiet, not to push with anything, waiting for the sap to rise....

Something so soothing and meditative about the rain. It is as though the universe is offering us a moment of time to nestle in and listen through the quietness for the still sounds of our own heart beating and our own breathing in and out. Beautiful images, Sue. Right here with you.

I can feel my sap rising...

Hmm.... I try not to be too sappy. Is feeling it rise good or bad?

It is totally okay to sit and be quiet! I've done that a lot this summer so far. Beautiful photos full of atmosphere.
Ah, a rainy day in England and so beautifully expressed by you, Foxy Sue.

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 …
