Filed under ~ 'B'

The party animals have all slinked back to the woods now the bouncy castle
has been deflated and carried away for another year,
I have my memories though, filed under 'B' for Bliss and Beautiful.



Beautiful ~
Daughter-in-law ~ such a great host and party entrepreneur,
Sons ~ making sure all the animals were well fed from the barbecue, and watered!!
Daughter ~ reminding us all to keep cool in the heat
My love ~ quietly keeping all under control i.e. chief pot washer and tidy-er-upper!!

Bliss ~
This day was about Connie my granddaughter, in celebration of her first year of life, I see her only occasionally due to the distance so this was really special.  She is nearly walking and loves to lead me around the garden looking, touching and smelling the flowers, sometimes nearly eating them! We romped on the bouncy castle together early in the morning before the others arrived, getting our pants wet-through in the morning dew.

My greatest thrill of all came when we were looking out the window together at the flowers, I detected a real first time communication, she, pointing at the flowers said 'look', I was amazed, this marks the beginning of what I've been so looking forward to, the time when she can hold a conversation with 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-…

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…
