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

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.
Have a lovely weekend... love from foxysue

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 …

Snuggling up till spring...

Comfy and cosy
feeling all loved up in the
comfort of haiku...



Just a quick line this week but thought I'd mention 'Doris' the storm that hit our shores.  On our walk through the church yard this morning there was quite a bit of damage, mainly to the trees up-rooting one altogether so that's why my Jasper and me are snuggling up till spring...

Happy weekend all haiku lovers...
