Pond Blessing

Today I have a little more 
hop in my hop!
a little more spring in my step,
 I can actually move around better in my cast.
I even managed some light chores stood on one leg!
What is giving me added Joy is the prospect 
of the sun's return, for this year we
will be witnessing brand new life forming!
Our pond's first season of growth 
and with the sun's help
we're hoping for an abundance of
wildlife to find it's way here.
The National Trust will be planting 
wild flower and grasses,
we hope some winged creatures will take
a fancy to our pond too,
maybe even a swan!
We are planning a little initiation ceremony
for the spring equinox, kind of a blessing on the pond.
A few candles set afloat on the water
that sort of thing, if anyone has any 
more suggestions to make 
this special I would be
over-Joyed 
to hear from you.

Sending over to the
Joy gatherer

you are stirring my primal heart in deep delight. a pond, the promise of spring. the song of frogs, the chance for swans. the sheer beauty of living a life reflecting the exquisite beauty of the day and night sky. i am not sure there could be a more loved and revered heart center for the natural world then a pond.

i wait with wonder and sweet expectation as do swans, frogs, tiny silver fish, tall regal cranes and an occasional family of foxes.

checking in
on your mobility...




{{ float flower*petals
on your pond
during the spring equinox
to bring
Abundance of Life;
i float them down our creek
in times of approaching drought,
one
never
knows... }}

I'm thrilled to hear you're getting around a bit better. Even more thrilled to hear the pond progress and see the image of the swan family. The pond behind my house has no swans, but it provides me with no end of delight being able to watch the finches and redwing blackbirds in spring, the mallards with their babies in spring and summer, the eagle fishing or getting chased by crows year-round.

A pond blessing--a wonderous and rich event welcoming both the pond and the coming spring. Your photos couldn't be more beautiful.

Oh, yes floating candles....in Hawaii tiny paper boats are sent out to sea with flaming candles. It is a sight to behold. Yours will be as beautiful. Your photographs are exquisite, they transport me to a beautiful place on this earth. Thank you.

A Heady Afternoon

All the Queen's men  and women were invited,  this was just such a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. Partying with the Royals no less,  right outside their font door, a heady occasion! This will feature strongly in my 'Joy Portfolio' Sending to  Sharing the Joy Thursday Meri's Musings

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

Continuum

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
