More Dot Joining...

All day long we'd be nursing baby and bunny,
dress on, dress off, wrapping baby up,
washing baby, changing nappies,
swaddling her in a blanket,
laying her in bed....
I mean the whole day!
Then when it was bedtime for granddaughter Connie, of course baby and bunny had to go too...
No one has taught her this deep nurturing behavior,
it is as natural as breathing...


I think this might be why these female doll-like creative expressions keep popping up,
why I so enjoy playing with my images, expanding them in the digital playground.
As a child I remember the books that had the perforated pull out paper dolls
with interchangeable mix and match wardrobes, where the dresses
hooked onto the dolls by tabs at the back, this fascinated me.

I have the natural desire to nurture, this seems to be deeply seated within the feminine. When looking around 'blogsphere' a profusion of nurturing sister circles have appeared, nourishing and flourishing!  I have come to the realization and conclusion that we live in most exciting times.  The internet is truly coming into it's own and is being utilized by the sister-hood for healing in ways that have never been available to humans before. Some believe a great 'Shift' is shaping up where each individual can contribute, share, become part of a collective consciousness that is forming steadily, a ground swell.  It has been mentioned that women could be the front-runners of this Shift, using their natural feminine Divine to lead the way... send out to the universe ripples of love and connection...
This is also my Belief!



























In 'Play Time' I am going to be creating more feminine forms and dolls, with meaning and metaphor!
I create the simple look from photographs using  Paint & Picasa, unlike the more sophisticated Photoshop, these two photo editing and drawing programs are quick and easy to use, just a matter of playing!
Keep a watch out and maybe you will join me in ~ How To!

Ripples of healing...

marry 'spring' cosmos...

These are so cool Sue! I tried the links on the bottom but I don't think they are working?

I agree there is a shift happening, and what a necessary shift...

sisterhood is so very powerful... charming each other where we can open a closed gate and let each other in with a trust that flows... sigh the capacity to love my cup runneth over...
This kind of marriage makes sense to me!

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…
