Service ~ 'It's a Pleasure'

'Joy'

What brings me joy this Thursday, 29 December 2011?

Honestly?

Something really simple.

Yet profound on the subject of service ~


"Service makes you tingle with aliveness.... is deeply creative, generative, and yes risky, because it means you share your heart."  Jennifer Louden


This subject is one of several brilliantly written articles currently to be found over at Susan Piver made me 'tingle' with Joy when I read it!

Oh yes,  the other great Joy today as you will have noticed ~ playing with my blog ~ all new for a while ;~)

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-…

Snuggling up till spring...

Happy weekend all haiku lovers...
