Playing again....

A little memory aid,
to remind me of a most beautiful happening,
whilst laid in my bed and the big old 'full snow moon' shining outside,
I could hear an own hooting twit twoo, twit twoo.
I have never heard this sound in all 15 years I have lived here!
My love thought it was the Tawny Owl most common in the UK, to my delight upon a little
investigation it appears this twit twoo is a duet song between male and female....!

I knew it was spring calling....

Must let the others know over at ~>~>

is there any other song that wakens us as much as the call of LOVE!! all the sweeter knowing love called through the long winter night with a song that will bare fruit in spring!
loving you from across the pond, where we waken to the same light and dream under the same knowing stars.

oh how beautiful...there is a winged one that i hear sing every early morning and late evening here. i do not know what she may be but am always comforted by her call. to love...
Stephanie said…
I will take this as a sign! Of pairings, of spring rights and rituals...

I agree with Rebecca, enjoying the same light here pouring in my windows, tying us all together.

luv this; have a nice Sunday

much love...
Oh, I love the call of the owls! They are hauntingly beautiful.... Haven't heard them here in a couple of years, especially since construction on an open space area started down the street, invading their habitat. Your own looks "kingly" :)
A spring duet of owls to bless you! What a wonder! Savor it while it is happening (as you do), and in memory when you no longer hear the haunting notes.

Norwegian Dreamscape Expanded

Meditation Morn
My Dreamscape Meanderings
Heavenly pass~time 

I rose early the first morning at dawn, although I'm not sure if it was dawn really as Norway is after all the land of the midnight sun!  Anyway it was an exceptional time to experience the fjords we were told so I crept out of the cabin, being careful not to disturb my sleeping partner and up onto the open deck.   I was the first to appear, only the staff were out arranging the loungers. What a wonderful feeling almost alone on this massive liner feeling totally in awe of both my traveling home and the deep fjord waters we were slipping silently through.

I climbed up the stairs to the highest deck and stood in absolute amazement at the sheer beauty of this place, I thought I could hear some kind of faint mysterious musical notes, to this day I'm still not sure whether this was my imagination going into overdrive at the whole mystical experience or a distant melody carrying through on the air.....

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…
