A Tale with a Twist!

I looked through my brochure and made a mental note .... Oct 28th, Crooked Spire Church, "a sizzling night of driving Irish dance tunes, hot jazz stompers  and  achingly beautiful Celtic music". I booked at the box office pointed to the page and quickly laid the tickets away in my bag.  I looked forward to the evening we dined .... we talked .... I took pics in the churchyard, a beautiful haunting evening close to  All Hallows Eve. We entered the church ... led to our seats ... lights were dimmed ... atmosphere and ambiance as anticipated ... and then ....  the musicians; violin, flute, harpsichord?!? 'Well it is Irish' I thought, out came the music sheets, Bach's Preludes, Vivaldi's Sonata ?!? The music commenced, I looked at 'my love'  he seemed to be in the 'moment', I sat through the first 'movement' thinking 'it's going to get a bit more livel

Photo-story of Woolacombe ..... continued ....

The sun came out to play and so did we first stop on the agenda - a peek at the neighbourhood talent   let's take a closer sniff and then   perhaps a little down time on the beach     a dog-elicious day in the sun ....  lovely to reflect on .....

It started ominously   I resorted to digital doodling   and   contemplating things of the heart!   but then ...    and then ..... and then .... .... to be continued ....

The Full Harvest Moon - Sue

The Harvest Moon brings such wonderful, nostalgic memories.  Jamie Ridler says  " This new moon is in Libra, a delicious sign of balance,  luxury and grace."   and  t hat we might dream of  " something that is simply about the delight". This was my dreaming delight for the Full Harvest Moon. For other Full Harvest Moon Dreamboards visit   Jamie Ridler Studios I'm going away for a few days dreaming, but I will be sure to visit all your boards when I return:>

The Full Harvest Moon - Charlotte

I am happily returning to the  dreamboarding circle after a few months off ... I took the opportunity  while I had a sleepless night and found the exercise cathartic despite the situation ... The luxurious theme is represented with the word  'princess'   something I think a lot of us girls  wishfully dream we are sometimes! The words  'you and I are made for each other' goes out to one and all, rather than a specific person. I hope you enjoy my dreamboard! For other dreamboards visit Jamie Ridler Studios

Weekend Revelations!

Weekend last was a beautiful weekend, not because I did anything special  but I shared time with my daughter and  our boys the mutts  Dougal & Jasper.   We walked and talked and the best bit we laughed! This is what chuckled me!  In my daughter's own words !!!:-) There was a power cut at work.   Not a lot else to do so I looked in the book cupboard and found this book called  The Answers (Neil Somerville)  I was intrigued.   The instructions in the Introduction said  " quieten your mind and think over the want to address .   With your question firmly in mind, close your eyes and open the book at your eyes and discover the response given". So, having been single for a while now I asked probably the most important question on my mind... "Will I fall in love again soon?"  I followed the instructions and the book could have opened randomly at this page or even this page but, it actually opened at  The only two

Life is unbelievable

What a topsy turvy week I have had, we planned a little jaunt, actually a few days in our camper van we call 'Celeste'.  I was slow off the mark to start with, not feeling the call, but nevertheless, as my love puts such an effort into turning this 'old girl' into a little 'home from home' on wheels I set about early  Sunday morning 'loading her up'.  It takes about three hours to make sure everything we possibly need is on board, remember the post about leaving my purse behind?  - well-would-you-christmas-eve-believe We all sat there Dougal & Jasper with collars on (I leave them off at home), me having closed and bolted the door, fridge switched on, electric step hauled in and the sun was shining!  Engine ticking over and looks like we're off! Are we off ?!?! - We jolted forward and nothing, my love looked at me and said "I don't know what to say" (ah ah), "the gears won't go home"!  We sat there for about five mi


As I sit here my heart is filled with emotion. So full, I feel like it's going to burst! Having found something that is almost indescribable, I will attempt: Having travelled down many roads feeling all the time I'm going in the right direction, happy and enjoying  my journey. Taking in the beauty of the landscape, stopping for refreshment and being appreciative of all the delicious offerings to support my soul's needs along the way, but not ready to settle in any place. That is until I stumbled upon this place! I immediately felt at home. Home What does home feel like? It feels so comfortable that you want to sink deeper and deeper into the fluffy down of softness. Like you want to linger longer for the love that dwells there wanting to embrace you. Feeling sure you belong, and loved  for being you, just you. Sharing your love there is such a beautiful experience, appreciated, reciprocated. That's what home feels like. Thank you for the welcome! recuerda mi cor

Remembering Chris

My haiku is in memory of a person I only knew as Chris.   Acquainted from a distance but feeling a closeness and deep sense of sadness at her passing away.  Not many words passed between us, nor were needed as the beautiful, unifying bond of yoga was our connection, and so it is fitting that I dedicate these few syllables to Chris, on the day of her funeral.
