Together we can
travel to the stars and back,
we are soul-sisters.

This week has been one full of emotion for me,
but I have come to appreciate even more the sparkles in my life.

My online sisters and the occasional brother, are you reading me Joe! ;~)
My yoga mat mates,
My fleshly sister, we are quite a few years apart age wise,
when I was growing up she was already married.
Dallas, (isn't that a super name?) lived overseas for about twenty years 
so when she returned to the UK we had to get to know each other all over again!
Next week we are going to a posh hotel dinner & dance,
today I'm on my way over to hers, 
we are going to talk ~


this is the nickname my love gave me when I was a slip of a lass,
my proper name being Susan Fox.

As one of three sisters, I know the importanmce of connecting. As one blessed with some awesome soul sisters, I know the joy and wholeness that comes from connecting there too ! So glad you have that joy !
Enjoy in, Sister !

oh sue i can only tell you that your place in my heart is as vital, uplifting and treasured as i hope mine is in yours. so grateful we have each other, no matter time, no thought of distance. but ones day, we most certainly must meet!

enjoy your sister time.

Love your nickname...Shoes 'n Frocks! Aren't sisters wonderful??? Mine is so different from me, yet we have that special bond that transcends everything else!

I love this image....and a super message in your haiku...I have a cousin my age (60), and we tell each other we want to grow old together....we'll see...she lives in Florida, and I don't like it hot!

I love your nickname. So charming and perfect from a young beloved.

I'm reminded that I haven't talked to my sister in over a month. I must talk to her tomorrow.
I can imagine this very well. I had no sister(s), but I had a brother (R.I.P) with whom I did everything. We travelled together, biked together, had same circle of friends and so on.
Wonderfully composed haiku.

Norwegian Dreamscape Expanded

Meditation Morn
My Dreamscape Meanderings
Heavenly pass~time 

I rose early the first morning at dawn, although I'm not sure if it was dawn really as Norway is after all the land of the midnight sun!  Anyway it was an exceptional time to experience the fjords we were told so I crept out of the cabin, being careful not to disturb my sleeping partner and up onto the open deck.   I was the first to appear, only the staff were out arranging the loungers. What a wonderful feeling almost alone on this massive liner feeling totally in awe of both my traveling home and the deep fjord waters we were slipping silently through.

I climbed up the stairs to the highest deck and stood in absolute amazement at the sheer beauty of this place, I thought I could hear some kind of faint mysterious musical notes, to this day I'm still not sure whether this was my imagination going into overdrive at the whole mystical experience or a distant melody carrying through on the air.....

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…
