Beautiful Water under the Bridge



Yesterday whilst editing a few of my images ready for canvas,
I came across this from last year and was about to delete
but got caught in the memory, suddenly I fell in love with the image and the memory all over again. Last year was full of walks with my love and the boys to our special place, a row of five little ascending ponds in the grounds of our beloved Hardwick Hall. These were special times, me being in love with capturing every reflection that spoke to me in those pools of colour.
This year has been so different what with the incessant rain and other
restraining obstacles, but these images are like gold-dust to me, they immediately
transport me back to one of the most beautiful periods of my life.
I can retrace my steps to Paradise in the click of a mouse!

“Let the beauty we love be what we do. 
There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.”

my darling sue,

your stories of ponds and long walks through the surrounding land of your home fill my memories too. especially the ponds, but always the light. you seem to capture the light no matter what season, no matter how dark the shadows. you have a gift for light and radiant love.
so glad to call you friend.

beautiful. this year, is a time for many of us to shed that what is not needed.. we may not know why things are happening at the moment, but it is all part of our journey. hard as it is. know that I am across the big pond.. holding your hand.. while we journey together.. and soon... we will be holding hands in real life. xo

This is a beautiful melancholy photo. I can almost feel you reminiscing as I enjoy the reflection in the water.

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-…

Stepping out Sunday
though nation is mourning, we
put best foot forward...




Today before posting my daily haiku on Instagram I was shocked to learn of yet another terror attack in the capital city London, 7 slaughtered and 48 injured, this only days after the Manchester killings. At the very moment I was viewing this on-line a pigeon, in flight, slammed into my window causing me to feel a sudden fear, heightening the fear- feeling for those innocent people... Later the prime-minister Theresa May declared on a news bulletin that "enough is enough" and that new measures must be taken to counter this....  As she counted out four ways these measures must take place I was feeling a sense of frustration that no doubt countless millions of others must feel in the face of these senseless acts of violence. I was thinking what can I as one person do? 
My small act of posting one image on Instagram with the above haiku seemed so insignificant and I felt the message of "stepping out r…

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...
