Celebration Collage



My yoga buddy recently qualified to be a masseuse,
I decided to create a little collage in honour of her achievement.
It's a bit too representative for my taste
but will suit my friend fine.
Carol is also a National Trust tourist guide,
for the grand Hardwick Hall, they have
recently opened a new restaurant
in the old stable yard (16th century),
Carol is responsible for telling the story.

Of course I had to play with my image in Picasa!


It's a curious thing when I create in collage,
something unintended but meaningful quite often surfaces.
For example take the two green umbrellas behind the word Summer 2012,
they were originally translucent flowers that caught my attention, I applied them upside down to the base line, not thinking of rain, it wasn't until I perused the collage later that I realized their significance!
This summer of celebrations here in the UK has up to now been the wettest in my memory!

Following your intuition you added the flowers in auspicious way. I LOVE collage for those reasons. Thank you for your kind words on my blog. :-)

A friendly street light
illuminates the dark path
as does bright hellos!

Navigating Home

Well here I am again!  Wonder of wonders that I am even showing up at all in this little blog wilderness having uprooted my faithful old friend Finding my Bliss by way of messing up the template!  The one who safely sailed me through Bloglandia for all of those years was interfered with in an abrupt manner (see previous post).   I know it may sound silly but I feel like I am grieving for what was my sanctuary and residence, I am feeling kind of lost with nothing familiar to cling to, but alas I do have one place that is very much like home and so there I will share a little haiku with my friends...
By way of haiku navigate a place called home the 'heart' gathering...
On the subject of home and the insecurity of having no solid ground to tread on, that's where I am finding myself at present as I'm in the throws of purchasing a new home and going through a very sticky patch with the legalities of it all.  It's going at a snail's pace and I'm getting frustrated …

Snuggling up till spring...

Comfy and cosy
feeling all loved up in the
comfort of haiku...



Just a quick line this week but thought I'd mention 'Doris' the storm that hit our shores.  On our walk through the church yard this morning there was quite a bit of damage, mainly to the trees up-rooting one altogether so that's why my Jasper and me are snuggling up till spring...

Happy weekend all haiku lovers...
