The Essence of 'Now'

It is a hauntingly beautiful day,
I feel like I'm creating my art in the moments as I type,
my art being my 'intuitive expressions' either in words or image...


There is such a chilled out sound coming from my radio,
blending with the wind outdoors and brilliant sunshine illuminating every autumn shade,
this combination always puts me in the mood to create, it's an incubator for the intuitive process and that illusive feeling that I want to hang onto forever... sigh.

Our belongings are in piles throughout the house, waiting to be up-loaded,
we should be on our way by now I'm thinking, lapping up the miles to my home,
journeying to the place of connection, my beloved ocean.

This trip has been eagerly anticipated for over a year since we last visited Whitby. It has been postponed! The lady over the phone said "there have been gale-force storms predicted for this evening, we advise you to put-off your trip for a day, we cannot take responsibility for your motor-home on the cliff's edge!

"Oh darn" I thought, this day is perfect for everything, the wind evoking a mood of mystery associated with Dracula and the Abbey, the raging sea and perfect photo opportunities (see the post)  Gothic Weekend... Now I'm left in a state of whirling confusion. The sight and sound of the wind whipping up leaves outside my window is adding to my state... I find adapting to change difficult, but I know 'Being in the Moment' ~ this is part of my challenge, finding 'balance' and coming to 'stillness' in whatever weather or turn of events, this is possible, I accept the idea that life is full of change and that I must go with the flow, look for the possibility of  'Now'.



The essence of Now, where sparkles shone for me today, 'intuitively' on the periphery of my vision - Captured!



The top two images are SOOC that is straight out of the camera, nothing added or taken away,
the bottom one has been edited in Picasa ~ (contrast, highlights and shadows).
The image is of a poppy photograph on my wall reflecting the window scene with raindrops.
Which do you think and why? I'd love to know?

Have you found sparkles today, if so where?  I would love for you to connect and show me...?
I feel a meme coming on here,  Seek your Sparkles Sunday!  
Er maybe....we'll see...

Yours intuitively.... SF

the first of your photos sang to me but more so your description you shaped the words with your heart, I could feel that wind, rain & sense your mood there is so much warmth in the whole post.

Magical images! Love them! So sorry your trip got delayed. But love how you turned it into such wonder, staying in the moment, "coming to stillness." I deeply resonate, although I too find it challenging to do this - to return to stillness and be present to life as it is...
I sense a real genuineness and gentleness in your words... Your post has inspired me today :)
