Starting anew, again

 The need to release is here, the time to say, to give vision a voice to honour the now ~>
                    
It is two years since my dreams came to a halt, when my expanding dream container got closed tight, so tight like it was sealed and I hadn't the strength to open it... It is still closed but I see the beauty of it alluring me, it is close to my heart nestled upon the silken threads that are covering a place that yearns to breathe free and easy so as to retrieve something lost, something precious, but constrained. 
A strange thing happened today, someone knocked on my door asking who owned the field behind my home as there was a sheep stranded and bleating with it's head trapped between the barbed wire. I was able to point her in the right direction for the sheep's release I'm glad to say but instantly I, being at a heightened emotional state became overwhelmed by the plight of the sheep and turned it upon myself imagining that I was the sheep painfully trapped by life's circumstances. The woman had mentioned that she couldn't leave the sheep helpless there among the other sheep that were obliviously grazing. Again, this endorsed my awareness of the loneliness we as humans can experience and the seemingly callous oblivion of nearby people just getting on with their lives. As soon as I realized where this chain of thoughts were leading I snatched them away focusing on the one kind person and her compassion for the sheep knowing too well the damage of dwelling in the lower self and reminding myself that all these things happen for lesson learning...

I needed a distraction, so I visited my spiritual home, my intuitive place of unleashing, penning the now, I honoured my vision with voice, it feels good to be here, it has been far too long...
Post Script: The reason I am at a heightened emotional state is that it is two years this week since my love passed whilst my brother in law passed yesterday under the same circumstances...

Hello Sue! What a beautiful post. And a wonderful metaphor for where you are now, and a wonderful messenger that came to your door to awaken you to your own sense of being trapped in the circumstances of your life... I can totally relate to that feeling for different reasons, of course. But feeling that same feeling of entrapment and not being able to get free. Am sorry to hear that your brother-in-law passed in the same way... Maybe you are able to help his wife not to feel so isolated and alone as you experienced. It is easy to think that other people are oblivious to our plight, our bleating, our situation, and we wonder sometimes why people don't seem to care, just carrying on with their lives while we are still trapped. But they too are just living out their life circumstances the best way they can. Am glad you were able to redirect your thinking and find your intuitive place again...

May your burden be lifted and your Heart sing once again! <3C

I have been browsing your evocative writing and photography Susan....wow! A beautiful and unique voice....and a positive discovery for me in the world of over commercialised blogging gone mad. So sorry for the grief you are in, but I know too the heightened awareness it brings.....mysterious in so many ways.....

Hiya foxy,
Light and dark are piling up on you it seems. Just when you could do with a spell of quiet. So sorry to hear that you have to try and get your head around yet another family loss while you are still grieving.

Any news on the housing front? It would be nice to see you happily settled somewhere pleasant.

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...
