Restrained not Broken

Sometimes life 
throws a restraining 
order on you,
you feel like a trapped tiger
wanting to escape,
 but the thing with restraint the more
you try to wriggle out of it
the tighter the restraint
becomes.

Acceptance of the situation means
stilling yourself, biding your time,
seeing the beauty that exists even when
boundaries are erected around you.
"Nothing stays the same, this too will pass"

what is death to the caterpillar, is life to the butterfly! your post brims with the power of true surrender and acceptance. two years ago I ruptured a disk in my back and was bed stricken for months! I came to know, like you, the power of surrender. blessings

...while within that restraint... listen for the still, small whisper. It will be profound!

Peace be with you,

You are wise not to struggle against it. May this time of healing make you stronger than ever.

We all live moments to years of binding restraint. You are very wise, sometimes it is best to just "stay" be at peace and wait. All things eventually change.
Wonderful photography to illustrate your wisdom.

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-…

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…
