For the Journey ~ Stage #3 ~~~~~~ Now to Infinity

After the journey's rocky terrain petered out,
the place of emotional release and point of red-rage painting
the path began to even as the days unfolded,
the heart being held and cradled by soulful searching and
supported by kind comments of encouragement from kindred spirits.


What's left is a visual journey document,
a point of reference, notes to self,
to keep close to heart for the future fortification,
a life journal going forward...


Pages to add treasured comments, suggestions and ideas...


Pages for quotes, poetry, and pretty things...


Pages for more mystical meanderings and imagery...


I will continue to visit these pages,
add more little visual messages as the days continue,
I will book mark the stages as and when from now to infinity...

Thank you all for holding me in loving kindness through these days,
my daughter is past the worst, she/we continue to battle with mental health issues, perhaps battle is not the correct word here, perhaps just holding our hearts in love, compassion and care, perhaps just Being and acceptance, I don't really know, I don't pretend to have all the answers but what I do know is this project of pouring out the emotions in paint and sharing is part of the beautiful journey...
I am grateful. x

my dear friend,
the beauty of you and your earnest seeking makes the ocean between us an overture of love. see how it cradles you on your side, and rocks me on mine? can you feel how everything is connected and when your longing heart pauses to be restored, every ones heart is replenished? in this way station of love i cannot tell where one heart ends, or another heart begins. so profound this merging of hearts i just had to sing it to you once again.
xoxo
Beautiful Sue... I am glad the waters have calmed a bit. Crises are always such chaotic, challenging and intense times, as you know! Am glad you found ways to care for yourself and find comfort for your Soul - like going to the Ocean... And remembering that this too is just a wave upon the Greater Ocean of Life... A friend once said to me, sometimes we just have to learn how to surf. :) Hugs, C

{{ i knew it
i knew it
i knew it !!!

a journal in the making
to help forget
some things,
to help remember
other things

i knew it
& am so please
you are journal*making Together ...

now

about the Sea of Life ::
i love my ocean smooth & flat
Sometimes;
i love my ocean deep blue & choppy
Sometimes;
& how upsetting it is
to never get to pick
which is which & when
so
there
you
go ...

i almost hate to say ::
when the sea is smooth & clear
i Wait for the nor'easter
which does come
& clears
away the beach

but

oh
how i sometimes wish i had control over which came when
but
i do not
and
neither do you ...

xox,
dear sue }}

why it seems life's most heartfelt challenges are the ones that allow us to unfurl our deepest strengths, our purest moments of grace, and your strongest wills - but perhaps those are the gifts these challenges can offer? holding space for you

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…
