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!

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. 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…
