I'm stirring...


I spoke about the excitement and exhilaration I'd experienced as an 'art student'
I haven't had this feeling in a long time but something is happening right now
I don't know what it is but the clues are there!
I'm feeling a little skittish even,
like the synapses in my brain are making new connections,
or at least re-establishing old ones that give me the feeling of being alive again after what seems like and eternity of dark days...


Whilst my love was on
this planet, he wasted very few moments.
The days were spent mostly making or repairing things, he was a very down to earth man but said he loved me because, quoting Dylan's words, "of the two sisters I was the 'creative one'".  He always encouraged me to express myself here in Finding my Bliss.  He said he was not creative but I knew differently for music and words were a big part of his life loving to search the internet for lost tunes and lyrics. I would often find him in the small hours happily singing along to some random finding with a lovely smile on his face...

What I take from this man is his attitude of living each moment to the full.
I feel like I might be emerging as a butterfly from the chrysalis

and

I know he would want me to fly in all my creative glory not wasting one minute!

Today I returned to my morning yoga practice, nothing too strenuous, have not laid my mat out in over six months, I have been somewhere else, the land of numbness, but now I am stirring...

How exciting! :)
Love your photo image...

Here's a line from one of Celine Dion's songs that seems appropriate:
"Fly, fly little wing, fly beyond imagining..." You're on your way!

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-…

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…
