Black Wallpaper




As a child I was keenly aware of being different,
I realised this when I accompanied my mum and older sister to view a vacant house that my sister was about to move into.

The conversation went something like this ~
"of course that black wallpaper will have to go,
I couldn't live with it, whoever put that on has a strange taste".

I loved the black flowered wallpaper, I didn't
see why they would want to swap it for boring old stripes!

They said I had a vivid imagination, that I'd make good on the stage,
I suppose they were right,
my imagination fiills
the inner and outer worlds of my Paradise!

On the agenda this week ~
My daughter in-law Karen's birthday today
My birthday mid week (shush !)
Stainsby Folk Festival next weekend (takes place in the fields behind my house)
Family and friends meet baby fox, Connie Mae!
Going to be busy busy!!

BTW  We have a family of Mallards on the new pond,
my love counted 9 chicks,
and one Heron hovering
nearby, Oh I can't
look!!!

You were always an artist it sounds like. I love how you depict what black wallpaper could become. Have fun during your busy week.

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…
