The Art of Distraction #1



Sometimes when the day starts off foggy, grey, lacking in focus and clarity, 
there's just no other option but to find your colours,
whether they be paint, cloth, clay or collage ~ whatever?
Just so long as they fully submerge the grey stuff, 
if you know what I mean?

Actually Mary came to me with this by way of ~

Your photograph is truly
exceptional...wow!

Wonderful photo. Wonderful transformation! The bottom
piece looks like it has a
dragonfly - symbol of joy
and light, and expressing
ourselves creatively! :)
Very nice...

"to find your colors" - i love this way of thinking and breaking through the gray of a day. today, it was bright but spotted with rain and grayness - and amid it all i found myself straining to find a rainbow across the sky. seeking that possibility of color.

dear one,
you truly are a harbinger of light. i remember england's pewter skies, all those gray low hanging clouds. quieting the colours of life with a heaviness that seemed to cling to all the edges of life. now, through knowing you; when i think of england all i see is an outpouring of jubilant light!
you colour my world beautiful!
"Now" is an opportune time to be happy, don't you think? :)

Yes. We are responsible for our own happiness. Looking inward shows our answer. Outward happiness from others is only fleeting.

and for me.. sometimes the colours are in the fog :)
I am learning, slowly, to sit with the foggy and dark times.. because for me, there is where i find my wisdom and clarity.. and yes, often Mary is there sitting with me patiently xoxo
your photos are absolutely brilliant!!

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! 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…
