Mary, Mother Earth and Joe

I could not put my mind to posting yesterday hearing the news about Joe,
I did spend a lot of time thinking about him and our connection and I describe this in one word
'affectionate' he always called me 'Ms Foxy', how I will miss this, and of course everyone else who knew Joe's affection will miss this too...

The other thing about Joe that floods my mind is his capacity for the spiritual
which is an even deeper connection to me. I think about the wind, his pilgrimages to the desert on his beloved motorcycle.  His great love for Mother Earth which he spoke of in connection to Mary as being a constant motherly provider, and his closeness to all of nature.  I have been scrolling Joe's blog posts to find one that's close to my heart, that describes his desert experience, his connection to the Great Spirit but it is like trying to find a needle in a haystack so many travelling posts, so what's the message here?

It seems to me that Joe never let life stand still, that he made the most of all the moments,
that he loved and lived with great spirit and was a true warrior for Peace...

If I were to describe Joe as an angel it would be

an Angel of Peace...

Joe was a blessing to us in more ways than one. May his soul rest in peace.

dearest sue,
beautiful loving tribute to joe. you are so tight and have captured his essence in your loving words. i too spent hours reading through joe's posts just to feel nearer to him, just to hear his voice. see how he continues to connect us all?
i always grinned when i read his comments to you and got to the Ms. foxy part. so dear. i am feeling so incredibly blessed by the hearts that gather through the blog world and find each other. grateful for the day i met you and found a sister for life.
Dearest Sue,
Such a comfort to read your post for Joe. I just saw it now. Rebecca wrote me and I found a Christmas (Mary) Post and changed it to dedicate it to Joe. I was at work. I have another for Haiku Friday that I actually made for him when he was in hospital a couple of years ago. It seems appropriate now. I miss him so. Such a giant heart of a man who touched so many. Thank you for your loving and keen words about our friend.
Much Love,

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 …

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…
