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 ~

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

Sending to ~
Mornings with Mary

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? :)

Tsunami of Graces
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!!

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…
