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!)

oh sue...your pictures are soul stirring, mystical and alluring. thank goodness we have a seekers heart to find truth, beauty and light in each ordinary moment. this is holy, this moment, this mindfulness, this belonging.

i love your light.
Rejecting the ghosts from the past is the primary reason my sister refuses to have anything to do with Facebook!

Those photos are magical, beautiful.

Happy Haiku New Year

Bare winter branches bathed in mystical moonshine stirring some magic!

Hello and a Happy New Year to you and yours...

I feel like a stranger to this online space it being nearly two months since I last tapped the keys here. I've been living a kind of nomadic existence recently flitting between houses with the addition of my new little tin home that perches on a Welsh hillside overlooking the ocean. What with Christmas and New Year I have been sleeping in random beds! The acquisition of my tin home is something I have dreamed about for ages and now it has come to pass so I've been bathing in ocean magic....

Something else that has kept me creatively occupied lately is my regular postings on Instagram, I have taken to posting haiku and images there as a meditative practice which satisfies both my need to create and also to focus, I have set the intention to continue this practice for 2017 and also to research the subject, perhaps write about my findings here as I believe this art-…

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…
