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'

I wish you luck -- if you need luck. But I imagine that you've got this perfectly planned and everything will go smoothly and people will be inspired. That's the energy I'm sending. . . the "good luck" is just for good measure.

Norwegian Dreamscape Expanded

Meditation Morn
My Dreamscape Meanderings
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.

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!
