Gently Gently...

One of those Mondays, things lined up..........

I had planned for yoga and a long overdue groom for the fur-boys,
but I was stuck.......... something was gluing me to a place of stillness,
I've experienced this 'stuck-feeling' before, I've learned to take notice of this feeling and
the message its sending to me, to listen to that small voice from within,
the one that knows the core of me, that sometimes I need to just be.

It has been a day of noticing subtlety, gentleness, I needed this too, to be gentle with myself.
I have learned over the years that I suffer from stimulation over-load and that I need to defuse this situation. I've learned that when everything is gearing you up to say 'Yes to the Universe' just sometimes you have to say No, not at the moment!



Have you found this yourself, days when everything seems too loud, too brash, too stressful?  You want to switch the world off!  The more I move with gentle souls both here on-line and otherwise, I feel the need to honour that voice within that says enough, I am enough for this day.

Yes, happens all the time - and usually on Mondays! :) I always have my lists of things to accomplish, and some days I just *know* that isn't going to happen. Wonderful to honor that isn't it :) I love being pulled into the stillness of just being - deeply resting, deeply listening at the Core of Being. I don't do well with lots of stimulation either, which seems to be most of life!

Enjoy the Quietude...

constantly. :)

i'm better able to recognise and acknowledge stimulation-overload. i sued to ignore it and push through, to my detriment.

it's hard to let go of enthusiasm and Projects, but i know how much fresher i come to these things after respite.

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…
