Panning for Gold

Today
finds me 
panning 
for gold,
~>
~>
'daisies 
are 
my silver,
buttercups
my gold'.


I didn't find
buttercups
but I
did find 
the
forsythia
being 
drenched
by spring
rain.
'Every cloud has
silver lining' 
so they say. 
Whilst
I have been
pot-bound
I've nearly
finished
baby fox's
shawl!
Plus I kick my pot
off on Tuesday! 44 hrs!


Oh and the other good thing that happened this week, our pond has been planted with reeds,
water irises and wild flowers . 

I'm thinking a willow arbor and seat
for me and my love!  What do you think?

Good morning, Sue. Your pond photo is as pretty as a painting. So pastoral I expect ducks to gently paddle their way into the picture. And, yes, a willow arbor and seat must be put in to finish it off.

oh forsythia unfurling beneath a welcoming rain. spring will rise up to greet you. open armed and two footed you will greet her ever so soon! (insert sigh of relief)

i love every time you write the words baby fox!

someday i would love to come visit you and sit beside your beautiful self...beside the peaceful pond and let our stories fill the hopeful air.

p.s. you are always in my heart.

A wee Fox -- how divine! And the news about your pond is wonderful. It should make it even more lovely.

Oh sweet spring! Your pond is a magical place...I would love to sit under a willow shelter and watch it come to life.

I think your plan for the pond sounds romantic. Anticipation and creation is sometimes as joyous as the actual end result, I think. Don't know what you mean about the pot, but I'm glad you took this time to make the Fox baby shawl. Looking forward to seeing it.

Gold, silver, forsythia beginning to bloom and the planting of a pond. Looks like spring and all the magic that it brings~~ even a wee fox soon. I hope you are well, Sue.

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…
