Reality Check-In


Dark & Dank
 ~
still cold 
rain dashes pink blossom
also dashes my hopes of a spring get-away

Celeste our old camper-van
in need of some TLC
rust worm has attacked her over winter

caught sight of a dead badger-
those pesky blighter speeding motorists!

Light & Fluffy
~
big full moon
baby fox to be born soon
shawl nearly finished
just the fringing to do
the days I'm counting
only a few!

light mornings
followed
by 
light evenings
makes for a 
light spirit

being settled by
warm words
spoken by 
soft souls
with kind hearts.

the photos are absolutely exquisite, but the poems spoke tons... I find it takes a lot to allow one to be vulnerable. And we all need some TLC :)

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!
