Postcards from Paradise #9 Random Acts of Kindness

I have no pictures today  just a story that was passed on to me, I'm passing on in response to  Rebecca's Postcards from Paradise and  the wishes of the story teller>
This is wonderful story and a good reminder to always be kind because everyone has something going on in their lives at some point that we're not aware of and also, some day, we may be the person needing the act of kindness. 


The  Cab Ride 
I arrived at the address and honked the horn.  after waiting a few minutes I walked to the  door and knocked.. 'Just a minute', answered a  frail, elderly voice. I could hear something  being dragged across the floor.

After  a long pause, the door opened. A small woman in  her 90's stood before me. She was wearing a  print dress and a pillbox hat with a veil pinned  on it, like somebody out of a 1940's  movie.

By her side was a small nylon  suitcase. The apartment looked as if no one had  lived in it for years. All the furniture was  covered with sheets.

There were no  clocks on …

Focusing on My Dreams

These are shadows  of my expanding dream container, I'm starting to draw my  attention to the real thing, the fine focus!
Dreams can be both joy inducing and daunting  at the same time. Right now I'm focusing on something  important to me, sometimes I just want it to slip back into the shadows where it can just be without real form. But for dreams to come true and bring me JOY I must focus!

Dancing Shadows

Dancing shadows, they have a life of their own, of another world...




 after watching them for awhile
I hopped over to the magical box
and digitised them! Wonderbubble!




Postcards from Paradise #8 Giddy Up!

I'm feeling a little giddy at the moment! things have moved on for me, I have a couple of things in 'the pipe line' This was my 'dreamboard' offering  for Jamie Ridler's Full Moon Dreamboards from a year ago, see ~ Full Pink Moon The first exciting thing is  I'm starting to create my own Photo-Blog-Book here's a sample page
on my screen,
will need a bit of tweaking,
I usually assemble the whole book
and tweak at the end
when I do any DTP work.

But the most exciting thing I'm making
s-t-r-i-d-e-s
towards
 is tied up in the message
of this intuitive Dreamboard ~
Full Pink Moon
It's something I've been working towards
for quite awhile, at least in my head!
I must say I'm a bit scared,
because this means
I have to step outside my
Comfort Zone!
It's not in the bag yet!
It may not even get off the ground!
If it does I will be so excited
and nervous at the same time.
I'm going to have to lock my fears away,
get out of my own head
and just go for it!

It's Just the Way It Is!

Rebecca  of Recuerda mi Corazon asks
How did the sun rise in you this morning?
I have to answer with peace and tranquillity. Yesterday's melancholy vanished in
the vapour of dawn early whilst still sleeping,  slipping back to wherever it came from? Some days are like this,   feeling like there is no sun, only clouds.  We know the sun rises everyday,  but we're just not feeling or seeing it! Other days, it's brilliance is so overwhelming illuminating every flower, leaf, shiny surface,  reflecting in every drop of water as pools of heaven.

It's just the way it is!

Postcards from Paradise #7 Did I Ever Learn?

My boat's been bobbing about on the bay of melancholy all day, my view of paradise is blurred and seems so faraway, I must wait upon the tide having faith that all things will turn, a lesson
 more than well rehearsed, but really,
 did I ever learn?

Postcards from Paradise #6 Fashion Fandango

Sun sinking low in the studio, thoughts turn to our own fashion fandango ... Do I go red? or gold?
Oh, the pleasures of paradise at least for a few days!

May Day today and the return of
our
little house martins,
they made it
all the way
from
Africa!

All that distance to find this little island,
this little hamlet, this little cottage,
how clever is that?

Speaking of talent, I'm in awe of the incredible skills shown by all the artists
who have so generously given of themselves
to support Rebecca in
