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 ensō by Lola @ Buddhatropolis
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…
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!

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
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…
time to reflect over tea on crow's redundant TV aerial perch refreshing rain for the garden miracle of macro a bit of pink fluff oh, and a pair of big strong boots to rely on, my love's of course! Linking with Share the Joy Thursday @ Meri's Musings
'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.
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"
