it's an amazing feeling to be told you're missed.
This is so very sweet... It is such an innate need to *know* that one is loved... I think this is what it all really comes down to, but sometimes it is hard to keep the heart open and practice it... I think you would like the post by Tara Brach called "Please Love Me" on my blog roll...

We are all loved beyond measure. Imagine if we *really* knew that! :) Heart Hugs...

it is a gift to have a friend and a greater gift, too, to know your place in your friend's heart is real and longs for you.

a wonderfully sweet post.

Love how you altered the mug photo with the amusing little cow.

Yoga. I'm reminded again to do this everyday and work at speeding up my body and slowing down my mind.

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!
