Virgins, Creativity & Gratitude #7

 This has been a surreal journey 
of dizzying heights, I'm seeing Mary
from every angle in all her
beauteous forms.
Thinking on Mary and the glitter
of the season as I leafed through
some magazines I couldn't
 resist the temptation to tear a few pages 
for my favourite art-form collage.

Day 7 contribution ~
Collage Mary, Queen of the Heavens

It also happens to be my sister's wedding anniversary,
we are out celebrating tonight,
I dedicate this collage to Dallas who was a
beauty queen herself once,
and still is!

Grateful for sister love.

'Virgin a Day'

Such a creative collage and tribute to Our Lady ~ and your sister ~~ thanks, namaste, Carol (A Creative Harbor) Happy AVAD ^_^
Love your creativity. Is that your sister's photo in the center. Looks like a real person. My only sister died at age 32 when I was 34. That was almost 40 years ago. She is a saint in heaven to me. This makes me think of her.Blessings

Sue,
This is your creativity at its best. So beautiful and full of love and light. I am so uplifted by it. And of course it has to do with the celebration of a loved one. You are so connected to family and Mary has made that connection ever stronger. I love the butterflies in this collage ~transformation, always transformation and dreaming forward. Beautiful! Thank you for your lovely words today. I couldn't get here till now because of work. Much love to you and have fun tonight with your sister.
xoxo,
Noelle
Collage is my own favorite art medium and I love your modern day Mary. Congratulations to your sister-in-law and brother.

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…

Snuggling up till spring...

Comfy and cosy
feeling all loved up in the
comfort of haiku...



Just a quick line this week but thought I'd mention 'Doris' the storm that hit our shores.  On our walk through the church yard this morning there was quite a bit of damage, mainly to the trees up-rooting one altogether so that's why my Jasper and me are snuggling up till spring...

Happy weekend all haiku lovers...
