Abstract Distract

There has been sad news,
two deaths in my family this week,
not close family but nevertheless close enough.

Light therapy is a wonderful thing,
absorbing the colours, reflections and shapes.
Contemplating the words. 
I love text and in particular this new text toy,
part of Picnik editing suite via Picasa,
the colour combinations
are endless using
the drop-down menu
What a difference a little light therapy makes!

Oh, Sue I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I'm sending you hugs, wish I could do more. Yes, a little light can do a lot.

The part about the loss being 'close enough' resonates with me too. I wish I'd have spent more time and effort with these people and now its too late. A lesson have learned for those in my closer circle.

Love Charlie-Lou x

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-…

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…
