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 ~
Regina Brett's 90 Years Celebration of Growing Older ~ Point 17

"It's never too late to be happy, but it's all up to you and no one else"

Sending to ~
Mornings with Mary

Yes, I do know...

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? :)

Aaa ah the art of happiness!

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!!

Hello

A friendly street light
illuminates the dark path
as does bright hellos!




Just dropping in dears to say hello to all at Haiku my Heart, everyone in the haiku home, to say you are never far away from my thoughts those of you in the circle of friends in the birthplace of my ongoing love for small words with large meaning.

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 …
