Feelings #3

Today I spent time in the garden,
I was optimistic for a good day.



The path we created last year has not weathered well,
the person who mixed the mortar (my love) was tardy!
It all cracked and disintegrated, he blames the frost,
I say there was not enough cement in the mix!

Anyway I was the one who had the job of
scraping it out and reapplying new!
I started off in great spirits, but
after a couple of hours I was
done for, I felt my age
somewhat like this
old lady,


 a little ragged round the edges, but still going for it!

BTW My love is building a wall to keep the flood waters out and the dogs in,
you can see the start of it just behind where I'm working, looks good hey?
Hope he got the mix right this time!  ;~)xxx

Kinda like yoga, maybe not as glamourous at least you got out in the sun. Oh and thanks for this word "tardy" I do love it so.x
That's quite a job! And yet you make it look so peaceful!

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! 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…
