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

Full Corn Moon



How wonderful! There's such a joyous feeling of elegance and delight.

Congratulations on your retreat. May it be all that you dreamed and more. Sending love and belief in you and your dreams.
I pulled for magazines I already had as well. Somehow it was more fun to find the treasures I had "missed" the first time. Every month new messages, so why not. I love the colors in your board. My your MOONth be filled with dreams come true.
Wonderful moving and graceful energy in your dream board ~ and lots of life and activity as well as time of 'being' ~ thanks for sharing ~ and may your retreat be even better than you planned! namaste, Carol ^_^
It got my attention. Love it.

The monochromatic scheme made it feel really powerful. Never thought to arrange, photograph and process... thanks for the idea!

Heavenly pass~time 

I rose early the first morning at dawn, although I'm not sure if it was dawn really as Norway is after all the land of the midnight sun!  Anyway it was an exceptional time to experience the fjords we were told so I crept out of the cabin, being careful not to disturb my sleeping partner and up onto the open deck.   I was the first to appear, only the staff were out arranging the loungers. What a wonderful feeling almost alone on this massive liner feeling totally in awe of both my traveling home and the deep fjord waters we were slipping silently through.

I climbed up the stairs to the highest deck and stood in absolute amazement at the sheer beauty of this place, I thought I could hear some kind of faint mysterious musical notes, to this day I'm still not sure whether this was my imagination going into overdrive at the whole mystical experience or a distant melody carrying through on the air.....

Shadow Land & Spontaneity

Usually in photography I practice the concept of noticing the moments and what arises and arrives spontaneously as opposed to a staging experience i.e. purposefully choosing a subject to capture. Picking up the camera when something hits my radar of perception is second nature and this in turn mostly leads to the pleasurable treasures of intuitive photography.  Recently due to the exceptional brilliance of the autumn sun through my windows there have been lots of opportunities to capture the clarity of shadows or their subtlety for that matter! Shadow photography is a favourite form of imaging for me.  However, I wanted to make the shots a little more defined for added interest so this lead me to try manufacturing the outcome, or in other words staging!  This doesn't come naturally to me during a photography experience for it touches on the subject of control, taking me out of the comfort zone of going with a meditative flow and into the area of thinking or a cognitive interrupti…
