Speeding By ~>~>~>

In keen awareness
I'm savouring the moments
as seasons speed by ~>~>~>


My sister is twelve years older than me, she said a few years back
"you watch when you get to my age then time really does fly".
These words keep reverberating in my ears, it seems
 no sooner the old year has passed than summer is
 upon us then swiftly making her retreat!

The melancholy may last for a moment or two
'The Party's Over' tune dances in my head
for awhile, I allow this feeling it's place,
this experience, for I know this is
one of many in this beautiful
thing called life!

i've had a slight variation of the journey. always too keenly aware of time fleeting, and therefore rushing, anxiety at not getting enough done...
i've done so well to detach from this that i often forget how old i am exactly LOL

you're right...we seem to be thinking along the sames lines. Perhaps it's I have a bd in a couple of weeks, didn't I JUST turn a year older yesterday...and my daughter just bought a condo downtown, how can that be possible.

enjoy the moment!

'Tis an art to savour in the midst of speed. May its perfection shine in you!

I was having the same thoughts this week...enjoy every fleeting moment.
I love the flock of geese at the end of your poem (at least that's what I envisioned) ♥♥♥
What your sis said is so true! As I read your post I started humming December Song.

My brother is 50. I'm 14 years older. It is quite true about time flying. He has 15 years of working life ahead of him; I will be almost 80 when he retires. Time feels compressed and sometimes it DOES feel a bit melancholy.

This is amazing and so true. Time is fleeting.

It's good to stop and be in the moment, realizing time passes by quickly indeed. I love the melancholic tone to your post without it getting too sad... (fall can make me the same way - and yes, my age...)

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-…

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! Shadow photography is a favourite form of imaging for me.  However, I wanted to make the shots a little more defined for added interest so this lead me to try manufacturing the outcome, or in other words staging!  This doesn't come naturally to me during a photography experience for it touches on the subject of control, taking me out of the comfort zone of going with a meditative flow and into the area of thinking or a cognitive interrupti…
