Kick-starting my Mojo



Hi to anyone who's out there, anyone who's listening!
I will forgive you for thinking you are in the wrong place because that's how it feels to me too...




I had gotten so stuck in the mud with the old look Finding my Bliss blogspot that I had to do something about it, I needed to get my mojo back and so the idea was to go for a new look template. That's when disaster struck, yikes!  The seven years of my beautiful blog nearly went down the plug hole, that is to say I nearly deleted her after everything got into an almighty muddle...   All of the formatting I had painstakingly laboured over on previous posts to get 'the look' now looked extremely messy... Just one click of the delete button was so very near!  I thought who will bother to read it anyway after all of this time in limbo and now that blogging is not cutting edge anymore and most of my previous contacts have already given up, why should I continue and why should I sort it out anyway?  But I got the better of my almost knee-jerk reaction, something popped up and saved me from executing her! Somewhere in my navigating the new template I came across an old post that startled me ~  .'Creating a photo story with Meaning & Metaphor'   The work I had put into that post and the enthusiasm I had, the sheer joy of creating shouted out at me 'NO'!  Even if it's just for your own joy and personal satisfaction you can get your mojo back!  So here I am again.

Something else colluded with this decision I visited 'What's Deb Doing' a ten year running blog. Deb, a photographer and inspirational creative light boosted my intention and determination to sort out the blessed template with this beautiful post ~   "Becoming Whole Again"  So late into the night while Jasper my dog sat patiently by the bedroom door waiting for me to retire I got to grips with things...   Anyway this is it, the new Finding my Bliss, I've not completely ironed out all the glitches and I dare not go too far back into my archive for fear there is too much editing to do but will at some point. This new revised verson has not got the same  personal touch I feel as my former blog but will suffice for now and does the job of kick starting my mojo!

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…
