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.

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…

Snuggling up till spring...

Comfy and cosy
feeling all loved up in the
comfort of haiku...



Just a quick line this week but thought I'd mention 'Doris' the storm that hit our shores.  On our walk through the church yard this morning there was quite a bit of damage, mainly to the trees up-rooting one altogether so that's why my Jasper and me are snuggling up till spring...

Happy weekend all haiku lovers...
