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'.

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.

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 …
