Grey & Red

Try accents of red
to energise dull grey days,
this dress fits real close!

Greys ~

going backwards to winter,
bills rise, income lowers,
my girl's not responding to medication,
too many nights of insomnia,
not sure of future moves!

Reds ~

Housemartins have flown back all the way from Africa,
are weighing up the cottage eaves as a possible home,
they must be optimistic about summer!

My love spotted a water vole on our stream bank,
they are at risk in this area.

I had a great evening listening to the fabulous
Acoustic Angels whilst feasting on 
mushroom stroganoff. 

 and of course,
my love affair with light and lens, still as strong as ever!

I love how you deal with 'lemons' (that's the verb isn't it?) in your life... I hope your daughter is getting well and wish for a lot of red in your near future!

my darling,
wear the close fitting dress...
sip with passion the deepening red.
walk out to the pond where life is burgeoning.
you are never alone.
that grey is only a swift shadow that will lift,
that all hearts will mend.

holding each of you.

Balance. The grey, the red. Yet I would like to see less grey matter in your life, so I'll ask for positive energy to reach you and heal any wounds and discomfort for you and all you hold dear.
Writing about it might be helpful. Sharing it is appreciated.
The best to you and yours Ms. Foxy

A lot of Peace sent your way

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…
