Mingling with Light

I mingle with light
again, the essence of now
I'm falling for you!


I relished my time spent in the basilica ~ Sagrada Familia and now during these mostly dull January days here in the UK I can return to those bright moments to relive the experience.  I am able to study each image and fully go back into that time frame which for me was essentially a meditative one, for most of the time it was a walking meditation totally in the zone.  However, over the two plus hours inside I had to step in and out of the meditation to note the information points in relation to the architecture which, being high in religious symbolism was interesting but my intention was for a pure in the moment experience without the distraction of pre-existing religious concepts, if that is possible! Ideally two separate visits would have been perfect. Interestingly the audio headset encouraged people to spend time in the seated area for contemplation and meditation but I prefered to immerse myself by the window light with my viewfinder and senses fully attuned.  At this point I am not concerned with the settings on my camera so much as this would be an encumberance, knowing this is a cerebral function which can be performed back home to some degree if I so desired. My primary concern was about the experience.

I was transfixed by the sheer beauty and quality of light, feeling relaxed and at home, absorbed into the soft essence, at one with tranquility, presence, peace...

have a nice Sunday

much love...
I love how you articulate your beautiful experience! The photo is exquisite with color, fluidity and form... I also love how you found your own way to take in the experience and let it incubate within you. You really are showing me how life *is* an internal journey, re-birthing one's Self creatively... You are definitely my inspiration! :)

What a magnificent edifice. The constant sense of being pulled upwards is overwhelming.

Thank you Annie, I hadn't looked at it like that but you are absolutely right and now I'm seeing it in a different light!

I was just thinking of you today... and here you are... the Sagrada Familia is such a special place... I feel the memory of my visit there in my bones, and your image and haiku bring it all back. I breathe in that sacred, sacred space...

perhaps the light i revel in most is the light of you. dearest...your presence here, your words, your example of gravitating to the essence of the moment all enfold me. the way you enfold me, as only someone who well knows the contours of each others hearts can do. i.love. you.

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 …

Snuggling up till spring...

Comfy and cosy
feeling all loved up in the
comfort of haiku...



Just a quick line this week but thought I'd mention 'Doris' the storm that hit our shores.  On our walk through the church yard this morning there was quite a bit of damage, mainly to the trees up-rooting one altogether so that's why my Jasper and me are snuggling up till spring...

Happy weekend all haiku lovers...
