What's in a Name?

Isn't it funny, 
I was feeling a bit chilled sat here,
I have a flu bug/virus just now,
I was thinking I need
my long, comfy cardigan to warm me, 
voilà 
my love walks in with the said 
long, comfy cardigan.


I've had more 'synchronicity' today ~

At the beginning of the year I chose the name
'Grace' 
as my adopted name for the year,
knowing there would be challenges ahead,
family matters that would call 
for me to be Grace-full!
I met the challenge and felt
I had lived up to my 
new name for the most-part.

Recently, my memory lapsed and I almost 
forgot about my new name,
I returned to the old pattern,
I returned to the little self
not my new
Graceful Self.

I spent a couple hours there ruminating 
with the little self on how I was feeling today,
how hurt I was, that I had been overlooked.

 Whilst blog hopping 
I came across something 
that I had synchronised with earlier in the year,
when I was thinking about my new name,
and again
voilà 
it happened, just what I needed!

was posting about
 Grace again for
the second time this year,
what timely advice ~

'Offer kindness to those who are undeserving'

Through the arterial veins of this blogging network
there is much synchronisation at work,
what a beautiful place to 'be'.

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…

Snuggling up till spring...

Comfy and cosy
feeling all loved up in the
comfort of haiku...



Just a quick line this week but thought I'd mention 'Doris' the storm that hit our shores.  On our walk through the church yard this morning there was quite a bit of damage, mainly to the trees up-rooting one altogether so that's why my Jasper and me are snuggling up till spring...

Happy weekend all haiku lovers...
