Ensō Continuum ~ August Break

focusing through the little eyelet, seeing the old with 'fresh eyes' contemplating the 'now'

What if, again ~ Spiritual Sunday #2

Synchronicity would have it that my little eyelet explorations
(see previous here) were manifesting at the same time I happened across
a post about the

In Zen Buddhist painting,  ensō  (Japanese word meaning circle) symbolizes a moment when  the mind is free to simply let the  body/spirit create.

The ensō drawing or painting 
is used for daily meditation practice.   It made sense, this was happening
 in my moments of awarness,
I was co-creating with the ensō
my mark making was not paint, led or charcoal,
but the lens of my camera. I am fully in the moment with my image making, for this reason it has taken on new meaning for me, kind of spiritual when using the symbolic ensō, focusing through 'my little eyelet'.

The Spiral Way ~
The way of the mystic is not a linear path.  We do not slay dragons one after the other, proceeding in a clear chronological line towards fulfilment.
Neither is the mystic way a circle a despairing and closed circuit in which we return again and agai…

Haiku my Heart #37 ~ Persistence

Holding true balance through life's turbulent ocean, ebbs and flows in waves. I have read, and I'm inclined to agree the occasions of perfect balance are few, and not held for long.
My yoga practice bears this out,
persistence is the answer!

What If ? ~ August Break

What would happen if....  I viewed the spectra through
 this little eyelet?
would new vistas open up?
new worlds appear for me to explore?
will this lead somewhere else?

Haiku my Heart #36 Pleats of Care

Each mindful moment
pushing the smoothing iron,
 forming pleats of care.

Memories of mother as sparked off by
Rebecca's flower,

Sheer Joy

Halcyon days of pure 'Monet' moments, breathing in beauty, drenched in light, tissue thin petals, sweet sassy stamens, seductive poppy  how you delight.

The purest joy I know
is when I'm totally in the moments
 with my camera

Light Years ~ August Break

Same Couple walking on the same trail of  ten thousand footsteps,  same view,  but different with each step and moment.  Light on the ascent. Light on the descent. It does seem that light reflects  more beautifully on the descent!

Wash Day Blues ~ August Break

When I'm in my 'Bliss Bubble'  I can re-colour my world as the need rises, whatever the weather,
'have a nice day'!

Full Sturgeon Moon Dreamboard

I've been playing with
Jamie Ridler & Co collaging my intuition under the Sturgeon Full Moon Diving beneath the surface  waiting to see what my intuition came  up with, I selected, cut, ripped,
assembled & glued  I hadn't realised until yesterday  it was the Sturgeon Full Moon, strangely enough I've been seeing fish for awhile, on waking my eyes were drawn to
one fish eye gazing at me in my
knotty pine skirting board  and  did you notice the fish in my new header? This all seems a bit fishy ;~)
Jamie asks 
" “Intuition, what insight do you have into dreams? 
What messages are stirring and asking to be seen?
This is a deeply intuitive time. "
So looking into my dreams I see: I'm ready & steady to give inspiration, I believe in  you & me that we are amazing women. That we have fruity juicy lips for kissing and  funky shoes for travelling to Paris & USA oh and last but not least, as the ballerina reminds me to be Graceful 'Grace' my adopted name for th…

Haiku my Heart #35 Peace

As tears of sorrow fall on green and pleasant land,  let's magnify peace. This is my prayer as my country is bewildered by mindless acts of violence.

Same Vessel ~ Pushing Boundaries ~ August Break

'Push it a bit more' tutor would say, pushing your art on produces amazing things. When you think that's it, you can always turn it into something else, the possibilities are infinite!
I view my photography as a pushing the boundaries kind or art.  It's not so much about technical achievement, although I'm not knocking skill, but for me it's more to do with experimenting and exploring my feelings through random images.

Same Vessel, Reflecting Deeper ~ August Break

taking time to reflect longer, looking deeper, revealing different perspectives,   the insight amazes,  views not seen before, I'm "loving the every detail of life"
