Haiku my Heart #41 ~ Simple Eye

bedazzled by life?
keeping the eye simple helps
and good grounding friends!

The sun is shining and 
I'm sat here in my towel drying off,
in 55 mins I will be
heading for a country farmhouse in the
High Peak Derbyshire
 for my
'Letting Go Yoga & Art Retreat',
but before I do I must post my haiku!

Will visit you all when I return!

Thanks to all who wished me well.

The Joy of Looking Back

Ocean flashing kingfisher blue
poppy silhouettes, pink perfect hue
    dandelions parachute, warm summer breeze
this has to be paradise, let me stay, please.

A post in the waiting, the days have rolled by 
and now we're breathing autumn air
I can look back and sigh!


I'm feeling a bit tentative today
tomorrow I lead my
'Letting Go Yoga & Art  Retreat'
first time ever!

'wish me luck'

Spiritual Sunday #4 ~ Processing 'my' Truth

I had a visitation yesterday,
ghosts from the past came by my way,
they beckoned me
 "return through the door",
a door I'd closed and bolted before!
They said life's
 safe and secure in this room,
being momentarily tempted back to the
I stopped myself sharply in my own track,
I know no use in looking back.
That residence has a price way too high,
abandon my truth, my own heart deny!
(do you see my little heart hanging in the balance up there in this image?)

Yesterday I became unhinged for a while, 
after a former religious acquaintance called
 wanting me to return to 
a way of life that I had rejected. 
We all have our own mental anguishes, 
from time to time these old ghosts revisit and
 I have to put mine to bed once more
 in order to continue down the path of my truth,  
the path that has a heart without the price tag of  
'restricted freedom of thought'. 
(the expression thereof!)

Focusing on the Red!

Bella's Prompt over at
52 Photo's Project -
'Time to share Red'
I don't take much prompting for this delight!
In-fact my love and I share a
drop most nights!

Share your Red

Shine On!

When days are grey and doubt clouds hover
I have an escape route ->->
where golden lanterns hang
to light the way ->->
and friends pop along to say ->->
sometimes if you wait.....
 they'll really shine
and so the day just turns out fine....

Sometimes all it takes is one little comment
on the end of someone's post to 
brighten an otherwise grey day!
'shine on'

Ready and Waiting!

I'm so ready for you -
you howling winds 
you dashing rain

Coming from the land of grey, grey skies 
Bring it on do your best!
I'm prepared I have my
new UGG boots!
well perhaps
But so SNUG boots!

So bring it on I'm going to kick your

Dreaming under the Full Corn Moon

Jamie Ridler says ~
"The practice of creating a dreamboard
each month is a great way of tapping into 
the shifting tides in the natural world as well as in your life.

Today we’re celebrating the 
Full Corn Moon
the beginning of harvest season, 
a celebration of the fruits of golden summer 
and a preparation for what is to come". 

My Dreamboard

Oh yes I totally agree!
As per normal I consulted Jamie's dreamboard post 
to view the details of this month's full moon 
and get in the 'zone', 'tuned in'.

Having done that, the magazines came out next,
I didn't have any new ones since last time, so I recycled!
It's amazing when you think you have exhausted that glossy, 
new images and words pop out at you!

Having selected, cut and ripped, I decided not to .
glue my findings into a collage,
I just arranged them,
on the table.

Next I photographed them and proceeded to 
process and add a little colour
using Picnik.

Here's my interpretation of this intuitive creation:
Blogging Angel Support - far right
One angel living on the continent of Australia - far top left
A window of opportunity - centre

I take this to mean my imminent ~

I will be leading on this at
the end of the month ~

There will be an intuitive photo walk - centre
followed by 
Reflexology and massage - centre
I must pay

to prepare for a relaxing and creative weekend.
Last not least, I must remember to 'be' ideally with Grace'
which happens to be my adopted name for the year! - bottom writing

Weather Checking Dog

This boy is fearful,
yes, fearful of his own shadow.
Today for example has been one of those 
rainy off and on days,
I had a lovely time in the garden, 
between showers,
but when I go indoors Dougal's sat hiding 
in a dark place under the stairs!
The thing is he is too intelligent
 for his own good.
He knows that a grey sky 
means rain is imminent, 
he associates rain with thunder,
thunder is a nasty banging experience.

Of late he has spent much of his time gazing 
through the window checking for 
changes in the sky!

On a positive note we experienced 
some spectacular light changes today.
Off to see an animal behaviourist tomorrow!
Wishing you all a good week.

PS  I'm remembering the day too
with all you folk over the pond.

Yes this is my quiet place,
my retreat, my sanctuary, my bedroom.

Spiritual Sunday #3 Postcards from Paradise

does the sun always shine 
in paradise?
not always, but the feeling is golden...
is paradise cloud free?
and pain-free?
not necessarily...
clouds and pain may sit side by side,
but when you are with the ones you love
it can still feel like paradise!
wishing you all a happy week
