Dismantling Christmas!

Oh the relief!
Happy to be on the other side!!



It is raining this morning but that's absolutely fine, for I am reveling in the feeling of peace...
This has emerged a few times over the last year or so and strikes me deep, feelings of just being
in the ordinary moments that are sheer bliss in the absence of stressful situations, I luxuriate here...
And the dismantling is already happening, the flickering reindeer lights started to fall off a day or two ago,
I begin to pack away the remainder and the memories a little at a time, no need to hurry, all's well...
My love washes dishes as I type, Chill radio plays the familiar, beautiful, mellow cello, I feel at home,
the pulse of life back to normal, that is my feeling of equilibrium ~>
"a state in which opposing forces or influences are balanced.
"the task is the maintenance of social equilibrium""
'Social equilibrium' the thing to be aimed for and yet each year Christmas feels far
from this for me, all the expectations of the season weigh so heavy on me,
my nature is quite introverted, social gathering always amount to the
same thing, feelings of confusion, overwhelm and so on...
Each year I promise myself next year will be different.



So I suppose my new year's intention is to make it so, to be brave,
to be honest with myself, and look to where I need to make changes,
to action my intentions not just with Christmas but every other intuitive nudge.


For now I am just being in this space, waiting for those gentle nudges,  readying myself for the ~> ACTION!

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-…

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…
