'Letting Go & Learning Retreat'

Unpacking my bag I could still smell the 
old stone farmhouse on my towel
now nostalgia,
 a memory,
 albeit only a day ago...
just three nights before I was anxious
all would turn out as I'd planned
for the last three months....
needn't have worried though
everything exceeded all I'd hoped for....
A well wisher reminded me to
learn from the experience,
I did 
'The Letting Go and Learning Retreat'
Trusting that all would just 'be'....
I set my intention
not to try and control....
I just stood back and watched 
how this group of women blended together,
it was amazing,
everything just flowed from a spirit of giving
on everyone's part,
all had something special
to share....

from a relaxing foot massage
to good food
and companionship
we shared wide open spaces
a  tree hug
also solitude at times

all-in-all
 a very magical experience!

Stepping out Sunday
though nation is mourning, we
put best foot forward...




Today before posting my daily haiku on Instagram I was shocked to learn of yet another terror attack in the capital city London, 7 slaughtered and 48 injured, this only days after the Manchester killings. At the very moment I was viewing this on-line a pigeon, in flight, slammed into my window causing me to feel a sudden fear, heightening the fear- feeling for those innocent people... Later the prime-minister Theresa May declared on a news bulletin that "enough is enough" and that new measures must be taken to counter this....  As she counted out four ways these measures must take place I was feeling a sense of frustration that no doubt countless millions of others must feel in the face of these senseless acts of violence. I was thinking what can I as one person do? 
My small act of posting one image on Instagram with the above haiku seemed so insignificant and I felt the message of "stepping out r…

Navigating Home

Well here I am again!  Wonder of wonders that I am even showing up at all in this little blog wilderness having uprooted my faithful old friend Finding my Bliss by way of messing up the template!  The one who safely sailed me through Bloglandia for all of those years was interfered with in an abrupt manner (see previous post).   I know it may sound silly but I feel like I am grieving for what was my sanctuary and residence, I am feeling kind of lost with nothing familiar to cling to, but alas I do have one place that is very much like home and so there I will share a little haiku with my friends...
By way of haiku navigate a place called home the 'heart' gathering...
On the subject of home and the insecurity of having no solid ground to tread on, that's where I am finding myself at present as I'm in the throws of purchasing a new home and going through a very sticky patch with the legalities of it all.  It's going at a snail's pace and I'm getting frustrated …
