Changing the State - One Notch Up

I was quite surprised by the
comments I got on my last post about my 'Low' mood/state,
what others saw and read
into my words and
images.

Christine thought
my word 'low' was actually 'love' 
and said "'love' is a nice state to create from"!  

After giving this some thought I made this reply ~
Thank you Christine, yes I agree changing the 'state' 
can sometimes be an act of changing the 'meaning' of things, 
looking at the same thing in a different light!


Ana was a little disturbed 
by my eyes in the image, I thought?
What eyes, 
I never saw any eyes,
but when I looked again 
I did and they were sad eyes, 
so here I am going one notch up, 
I'm now looking at those sad eyes
in a different light, giving 
different meaning by 
adding a smiley face!































I'm changing the 'state',
going one notch up!

I'm sending my artistic work to line up with other photo artists
who gather at ~>

oh Sue, I LOVE the new photo. She looks exquisite, vibrant... Love it.
What a playful and creative way of showing how we tend to interpret things differently depending on our perspective! And in turn, how a change in perspective can change our state of being... I still "love" the 3 eyed one :) More eyes to *see* with :)

It is a total truism that no one ever sees the same thing in quite the same way. Views are always subjective. I like the idea of changing one's "state". Good decision.

Lovely images Mum. Noche (said no-tchey) means night so each night brings a new state with the morning...

What a great alteration you have made. There are always two sides to every situation and the one we react to the most is what will dicate our life. - I love your creative thinking.

Fabulous idea about "changing the state and going one notch up!" Inspiring. Turning sad eyes into happy ones. Very playful image.

turning the low state to a more happier one can only be good.. yes, one notch up.. your being will begin to vibrate to a higher frequency each time you do this.. and sometimes, you must just take time to sit and be.. xoxo

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…
