The sun finally came to visit our shores.
Focused on outdoor flora, after what seems like an eternity of indoor still-life.
Returned to the mat, breathing and stretching, felt oh so good.
My love won an ebay auction bid for 20 bars of Damana Olive Oil soap,
it's super kind to my skin and is only supplied so select hotels!
Nothing spectacular, simple joys, then I'm just a simple joy kinda girl!
The feeling ~ fatigued by ongoing overwhelm.
Intention ~ love myself more,
stretching and breathing,
trusting and believing.
“Birds make great sky-circles of their freedom.
they learn it?
They fall and falling,
they're given wings.”

rain dashes pink blossom
also dashes my hopes of a spring get-away
Celeste our old camper-van
in need of some TLC
rust worm has attacked her over winter
caught sight of a dead badger-
those pesky blighter speeding motorists! Light & Fluffy
big full moon
baby fox to be born soon
shawl nearly finished
just the fringing to do
the days I'm counting
only a few!

I have posted this art before, I'm posting it again!
because of the absolute JOY
it brings me
whenever I look at it!
Yes it was digitally composed and yes,
because of the abundance of digital images
some would not consider it art or give it a second glance.
But this is one of my all-time favourite creations,
here is why I love it ~
I was at one, totally absorbed in the creation!
The intuitive feeling that the original image (a photo) would
become something more, something other,
a layer of different meaning,
I didn't know what that meaning was
at the time but trusted that it would reveal itself to me,
and so it did after my random manipulations!
Looking down at my creation here is what I saw
I was one of the two birds, I had flown to a faraway
place now hovering over a sun-drenched coastline,
the sun reflecting beams of light into the air,
the other bird was a friend, a native,
who had risen to greet me.
Both of us are elated to share
the greeting and were vie…
I've been reading, it's been a while
since I picked up a spiritual book,
but felt the need to do so,
as I do
from time to time.
I'm a take the essence
of the content if it resonates kind of person,
rather than set in stone absolutes.
Once on my journey I opted for the whole story
which led me to spiritual shipwreck when their
absolutes were at odds with my truth.
This was a most painful experience.
That was a longtime ago, lessons have been learnt,
so I look for the essence, today I have been
reading about the impermanence of all things
this being a fundamental base
for Buddhist teaching.
I'm not about to become a Buddhist, as I say
I look for the essence, the wisdom,
not the complete way.
Thinking about impermanence though,
I wonder why it is, given that the nature of all things
is subject to change, why are we so resistant?
Our nature is one of habit,
habitual behaviour, so hard to break?
My morning ritual is tea and more tea,
yet I want to drink less, to change, …
steps in the circle
one foot after the other
keeps spinning around
I've been fixated with spirals lately,
you may have noticed?
There is something about the shape,
continuity, fluidity, motion...... and more.
When I doodle this is the shape I return to........
Listening to Chill Radio,
as I often do whilst in the zone with my spirals
I notice the lyrics ~ And
I've learnt how to play it with one foot in front of the other and there's
no way to win it we all just spin around and around . Tom Baxter Lyrics
You know how it is you hear half of the lyrics,
the more you listen the more the words surface, you have a aha moment,
you think yes that's it,
you align with the sentiment, it resonates........ Downward Cycle ~
rain and more rain, cold too
fear of flooding again after the rain
bouts of insomnia
alopecia flare-up Upward Cycle ~
sigh when flood was averted
