My trembling fingers
create artistic blurring
cloud's silver lining!

I have been unwell since before Christmas,
one of the symptoms was a loss of co-ordination and trembling hands,
the camera seemed too heavy for my fingers.
I'm glad to say the fog seems to be lifting,
once again I'm wielding my camera and more importantly
the desire to capture images and play with them has resurfaced!

Really my illness is becoming a little blurry too,
but because it was so severe losing about a stone in weight,
along with deep anxiety about the diagnosis of the scary tests
I want to remember all the painful details because some life affirming messages/changes have occurred,
an awakening of sorts!

that your fog is clearing makes my heart lift!
Such intense and scary times dear Sue... Am glad that it seems to be lifting, and that you are able to get back to what you love - creating with your camera! Am excited to hear that you were able to extract some life affirming messages through all this! Interesting how illness can work that way - opens us in a way that we didn't know could happen... Let's hope you are moving through this to health again! BE well!

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…

Navigating Home

Well here I am again!  Wonder of wonders that I am even showing up at all in this little blog wilderness having uprooted my faithful old friend Finding my Bliss by way of messing up the template!  The one who safely sailed me through Bloglandia for all of those years was interfered with in an abrupt manner (see previous post).   I know it may sound silly but I feel like I am grieving for what was my sanctuary and residence, I am feeling kind of lost with nothing familiar to cling to, but alas I do have one place that is very much like home and so there I will share a little haiku with my friends...
By way of haiku navigate a place called home the 'heart' gathering...
On the subject of home and the insecurity of having no solid ground to tread on, that's where I am finding myself at present as I'm in the throws of purchasing a new home and going through a very sticky patch with the legalities of it all.  It's going at a snail's pace and I'm getting frustrated …
