Her Legacy

Seems strange that on the week I decided at last
to re-glue 'My Book of Belief', posted about here
 'Coming Unstuck'
That the person who inspired me to make
this book passed away.


It also seems strange that I should at
the same time be reading another of her motivational books
'End the Struggle and Dance with Life.

There have been many women who have inspired me here on-line and in book-form,
Susan Jeffers being one. She is renowned world-wide for the up-beat way she deals
with life's emotional struggles, bringing bite-size chunks of practical wisdom to
the fore.

One reason why her work appeals to me is that from what I read she did not pretend to 'know'
or speculate about the big questions in life such as 'where we came from',
'why we are here', or 'where we will go', in-fact like me, she took refuge and rest in the 'don't know'
but at the same time enthused about the Grand-Design of it all.

Susan has helped me enormously as well as many others worldwide, her work is now a legacy for those in need and for anyone interested in personal development.

RIP Susan Jeffers, October 7 1942 - October 27 2012.

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…
