Embracing Connections

'Community Connections' was adopted as
the title for our monthly village newsletter,
I was the one to come up with the title, 
the others embraced it, and so it was launched. 
That was some ten years ago,
 it is still going strong today. 
Community was my world then but more at a local level, 
today my community has expanded to global proportions, 
thanks to among others the British scientist 
Sir Tim Berners-Lee, 
who was celebrated Friday night in the opening ceremony 
of the 30th Olympic Games in London 
as the inventor of the world wide web!

One of the ceremony highlights, 
the lighting of the olympic flame cauldron was very emotive. 
A metal flower petal was carried by 
each country's representative and assembled in place, 
as the flame ignited all of the petals they moved together 
rising as one united blossom, a spectacular vision! 
This reminded me of the opening and closing 
of the Lotus Blossom 
which is said to represent the awakening of consciousness, 
which does seem fitting here as this occasion also marks  the first Olympic Games to have a female representing each nation! Bravo!

So today I am embracing the word 'connection',
embracing new connections,
embracing old connections,
for through all of these connections ~
We may embrace Paradise!

The following article, found at the DailyOM is one of many that inspires me, it speaks about the 'ripple effect, and changing consciousness.
 ~ The DailyOM

"Like the ripple on a lake spreading out, humanity is awakening at an ever increasing speed"

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…
