Postcards from Paradise #11 Hot Off the Press

My plans are coming to fruition, here is my invitation for  The Letting-Go Yoga & Art Retreat We already have eight names another two and we're away............
'Celeste' our campervan calls, so we have to respond we'll go wherever she directs. I have a feeling it will be the Welsh Mountains!
So will be visiting all of you petals when Celeste brings me home! xxx

More Strange Sights up North

Holy Island's  Redundant Herring Fleet  ~  Boats turned up-side-down,  now making 'shabby chic' sheds. Recycling has been going on  for ages here, 'make do and mend', still smelling a bit 'fishy' though!
I was overjoyed at the sight of these up-turned boats on the seashore,  they are relics from the past  adding enchantment to the island, an atmosphere of ancient times still lingering on.

Postcards from Paradise #10 ~ Fiery Dragons Sighted!

Yet more strange and beautiful places waited for us on our journey North Holy Island
Northumberland  There's a strong spiritual presence here as indicated by the name,  being the base for Christian evangelising in AD 635. Lindisfarne Priory is famous for  the illuminated manuscript known as the the Lindisfarne Gospels ~  illustrated Latin copy of Mathew, Mark, Luke  & John. thought to have been made here in 700s It was reported by The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle ~ "Vikings raided Lindisfarne in 793  In this year fierce, foreboding omens came over the land of Northumbria.  There were excessive whirlwinds, lightning storms, and fiery dragons were seen flying in the sky.  These signs were followed by great famine,  on January 8th the ravaging of heathen men  destroyed God's church at Lindisfarne". The island itself is an oddity it joins the mainland by a causeway  of about 3 miles,  you must check the tides before venturing there otherwise you're likely to be stranded …

Full Strawberry Moon Dreamboard

Today I decided to dream under the full moon  along with Jamie Ridler and company. This is my intuitive creation,  I had forgotten how relaxing and therapeutic cutting, ripping and glueing can be!
(for detail click image) As usual, it was a totally intuitive process and this is what I'm reading into it~
Lots of red for energy,  I have to pace myself these days due to the lack of it. Fresh fruit to give me energy, cherry picked  denoting quality,  I'm worth it!
 A pop of yellow bringing sunshine into my life. Through the corner of my eye though, matters
of the heart are catching my attention, I'm learning lessons!
Yin Yang reminds me of balance, whilst the stiletto heel is saying be a shade braver!
This is timely advice for me,  which I intend to take
because  I'm planning my own Art & Yoga retreat
 where I will be leading on art,
collage dreamboards are top of the list!
Wish me Luck!
If you haven't dreamboarded before
 now is the time, it's great fun, 
see others for inspiration  a…

Strange Days Continued ....

After returning from my strange day on the beach, the evening  turned out to be just as eerie, This building seemed to attract my attention  through the steamed up camper van  window, I didn't know why? Something about the windows of the upstairs rooms. It felt like the house was devoid of life, only a  2D silhouette cut-out  against the sunset. Not realising at the time I took this shot, but when I studied it later on it became evident that this house had been abandoned.
It's a funny thing my intuition knew all along!

Strange Days - Reading the Signs

Ministry of Defence Warning - Beware of Metal Objects &  Quick Sand!
The approach through the dunes felt very eerie. The dogs usually pulling on the lead to get to the beach, not this day!
Eventually we reached the sand, yes sand as far as the eye could see, like a flat desert, perhaps I could  see a small strip of water in the distance  it may have been a mirage though!
My first inclination was to turn back, I'd had too many nightmares  of sinking down into mud oblivion, my love took delight in teasing me  whilst coaxing me on. "Okay then" I said, "just on the edge",  making sure not to stray towards the dunes again
for fear of unexploded metal objects
laying in wait of ambush, or to let my feet venture off the
dry sand onto the wet sucking you under stuff!
After awhile feeling a little more calm we let the boys off the lead as we usually do,  but strangely they kept right beside us  not bounding miles away with excitement.
The dogs did raise a little interest however,  as we approac…

Intention Setting #1

Hello,  I'm back from my break, not sure how I'm feeling about being home just at the moment, the sea is still calling! I've been thinking about the word 'break' and how a break from the familiar provides a gap to look at the everyday from a different perspective,  perhaps  giving more clarity? I got to thinking about  what's really important? Thinking about this last year or so, the journey here on-line, and off-line for that matter, where I'm at? My journey feels a bit like my break really, one day full of sunshine, another quite hazy, sometimes predictable,  other times rather strange, yet  fascinatingly beautiful. One thing that does seem clear though, I need to 'let go' more and rely on my intuition, both on-line and in my life.
One of the ways I intend to do this is by  writing more intuitively,
 coming from a place at the core of me, my essence, as I endeavour to do through my images.
This break has impacted upon me at many levels,   in strange and beautiful ways!
