I'll Never Forget ....

Mixed media art
in honour of the 'special ones' 
gone before.

William my father, called me his little buddy,
 loved by all for his wicked sense of humour,
his roguish ways, generous spirit,
not a day goes by that
I don't think about
his parting night,
the glint in
his eye said
 'I love you little buddy'.


Beautiful Alice my mother, 
doting mother,
always there to say
 'there there'
 she loved Roses chocolates,
 ground coffee on Sunday
and totally in love
with my dad.


Eric special friend,
a big cuddly bear of a man,
aware of his spiritual need,
caring and comforting, always in my heart. 
Must be with God 
 he talked about him endlessly
and, his lovely wife Freda
remembered fondly

Joining in with friends, honouring those gone before ~

Hi Sue.
What a beautiful work of art you've made in memory of lost loved ones. The few words you've written about each one are so touching and say so much about them ~ beautiful words honoring beautiful people.
I became involved in this Day of the Dead celebration because I lost my dear brother last Fall. It has been so very helpful to me.
It is nice meeting you, Sue.

Your tribute to family and friends is lovely.
Beautiful work of art honoring loved ones. Thank you for sharing your loved ones memories with us.
I just love your commemorative art piece, Sue. The colors are so incredibly vivid. I'm still in the early stages of "arthood" and wonder if you would e-mail me the details of how you created this? Also, are these acrylics, and if so, what colors or combos did you use? I also love the stories of those you remember. That's what I hope to begin tonight when I sit with my loved ones by the ofrenda.

Aww, Sue, this is one of the loveliest hommages to beloved passed souls I've ever seen. You inspire me to do something similar. God bless you. Annie
Sue; thanks for sharing your memories with the rest of us. I also enjoyed the photos below of the car in the drive way; but saddened to read of your daughters illness. Hopefully there are answers and results by this point in time?

All day long we'd be nursing baby and bunny, dress on, dress off, wrapping baby up, washing baby, changing nappies, swaddling her in a blanket, laying her in bed.... I mean the whole day! Then when it was bedtime for granddaughter Connie, of course baby and bunny had to go too... No one has taught her this deep nurturing behavior, it is as natural as breathing... I think this might be why these female doll-like creative expressions keep popping up, why I so enjoy playing with my images, expanding them in the digital playground. As a child I remember the books that had the perforated pull out paper dolls with interchangeable mix and match wardrobes, where the dresses hooked onto the dolls by tabs at the back, this fascinated me. I have the natural desire to nurture, this seems to be deeply seated within the feminine. When looking around 'blogsphere' a profusion of nurturing sister circles have appeared, nourishing and flourishing!  I have come to the real


A Continuum ~> continual sequence of ~> elemental change ~> By far this is the most difficult post written by myself, ever. I have not visited this place for sometime... I have been 'lying low' as an old friend used to put it, not low through depression or anything like that but since my love passed away parts of my known world have passed too. I have difficulty recognizing the landscape around me, I'm lying low so that I can absorb some of the new terrain. I am still quite dizzy, it's going to take some time... Much of what I wrote about here in this space would involve a brief glimpse of 'my love' and our life together. I had thought of closing 'Finding my Bliss', for a pivotal part of everything this blog has stood for seemed on the surface of things to be missing! But as the days have come and gone I am beginning to look at things in a different light and although I am grieving for my love I find I am l feeling his prese
