Snow Blanket

Someone laid a snow blanket out here this cold morning, 
it beckoned me beneath for solace and succour.
So, with hot-water bottle in hand I slid 
into the softness thinking about love, 
possibilities and new moons!

A snow blanket offers the mind
a lair for protection and security,
to slip into the solitude,
to enter winter's wrap
enveloped in this
comfort.

I'm biding my time here, in my lair.
My day will come, my season, 
and the snow blanket, it will melt, 
and evaporate into 
the ether.

And I will be gone into the summer sun!

Dearest Sue,
I am reminded of Robert Frost's "Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening" first by your stunning image which I would love to frame and have near me always ; and next by your amazing prose which speaks of pausing and recognizing the intrinsic and inexpressible value of quietness and stillness that only a blanket of snow can provide . Lovely work!

dear sue,

i have been so absent from the blog world. this morning i have come straight to you and found a blanket of friendship that was never waned in
comfort and love.
thank you for being you, and all the seasons we have been blessed to know each other.

dear friend,
it was a breath of warm air to be away in san miguel. where the usual wifi access courtyard ran a muck leaving us completely off the grid.i am here to say i LOVED it! no phone, computer, heck i even left my camera go and just showed up every morning and allowed life to unfold in real time.
true confessions...wondering if my blogging days have come to an end.
thank you for visiting my unexpected post today and giving me pause to think more carefully on the idea of bowing out of bloglandia.

xoxoxoxoxo,
me

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-…

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! Shadow photography is a favourite form of imaging for me.  However, I wanted to make the shots a little more defined for added interest so this lead me to try manufacturing the outcome, or in other words staging!  This doesn't come naturally to me during a photography experience for it touches on the subject of control, taking me out of the comfort zone of going with a meditative flow and into the area of thinking or a cognitive interrupti…
