Blooming Friendships

A tiny seed is tucked away
somewhere on distant soil,
finding its way there not by 
some migrating bird
flying on the wings of friendship,
soon the sun will turn her
attention to the work of warming
 my little seed will surely be
aroused by its tender care,
to find a route through
this tough exterior terrain of life
so it may bloom too on distant shores,
as a reminder of all the beauty we share.

Here's to all Blooming Friendships

i want you to know as i walked into the light of this new day...before i even dreamed of your words here it was just this that filled my heart!
your poppy full of promise and perfect colour so much like cupped hands carrying water to nurture every soul. today as a symbol of promise, to give deeper roots to the friendship we aspire too even across the limitless sea...
i will scatter the priceless seeds.
this is what i was imagining as i walked the sun into the sky. as you might have been forming these words in the very same sacred moment.

oh how i love you sue, with a love that defies time and space.

my seeds for you will arrive before you are winking at the promise of spring!

oh how i love you.

Sue dear,
These poppies are glorious. The seem to contain all the colors of the rainbow and the seeds of friendship that have been sown between us for over a year now. I often think of you when I see poppies or the seeds. They are indeed like bulbs of bright promise. I am so thankful for our friendship and so happy that we will have another year together. I wish you and your lovely family a peaceful and happy New Year. Thank you for your insightful words on my poem today. I felt such a soul connection with you and thank you for reminding me of the beautiful blooms of which cactus are so capable. :)
All My Love,

Norwegian Dreamscape Expanded

Meditation Morn
My Dreamscape Meanderings
Heavenly pass~time 

I rose early the first morning at dawn, although I'm not sure if it was dawn really as Norway is after all the land of the midnight sun!  Anyway it was an exceptional time to experience the fjords we were told so I crept out of the cabin, being careful not to disturb my sleeping partner and up onto the open deck.   I was the first to appear, only the staff were out arranging the loungers. What a wonderful feeling almost alone on this massive liner feeling totally in awe of both my traveling home and the deep fjord waters we were slipping silently through.

I climbed up the stairs to the highest deck and stood in absolute amazement at the sheer beauty of this place, I thought I could hear some kind of faint mysterious musical notes, to this day I'm still not sure whether this was my imagination going into overdrive at the whole mystical experience or a distant melody carrying through on the air.....

Shadow Land & Spontaneity

Usually in photography I practice the concept of noticing the moments and what arises and arrives spontaneously as opposed to a staging experience i.e. purposefully choosing a subject to capture. Picking up the camera when something hits my radar of perception is second nature and this in turn mostly leads to the pleasurable treasures of intuitive photography.  Recently due to the exceptional brilliance of the autumn sun through my windows there have been lots of opportunities to capture the clarity of shadows or their subtlety for that matter! Shadow photography is a favourite form of imaging for me.  However, I wanted to make the shots a little more defined for added interest so this lead me to try manufacturing the outcome, or in other words staging!  This doesn't come naturally to me during a photography experience for it touches on the subject of control, taking me out of the comfort zone of going with a meditative flow and into the area of thinking or a cognitive interrupti…
