Sky Connections

Following on from yesterday's post about Connections,
I quickly press 'new post button' less these thoughts escape me....

I have been visiting Dirty Footprints Studio and as synchronicity would have it
Connie is posting about connections too!
I have left comments on Connie's blog over 2 years but never
had a personal response, this doesn't matter
though because she speaks straight to my heart!

Recently Connie lost a very dear friend whom
she affectionately called 'Uncle Johnny',
Johnny was a musician, he died suddenly
read the story here

In honour of the life of her dear friend,
and all our dear friends gone before
Connie suggested we connect through
 'Piecing together the Sky', a memorial
through sky images and words describing
our heart connection.

My special friend and heart connection
died a number of years ago now,
I often wonder about him?
He was a very spiritual person, a little unusual, different
from other men I'd known, he said he thought his difference
was due to him being the baby of a family of four sisters....

He introduced me to a religion that I no longer am
affiliated with but spent twenty years of my life sharing
those values and connections with him and others....

Eric thought a special place was reserved for him in heaven....
The truth is I'm not sure about details the future holds....
but one thing I am sure of is that this person, was
the kindest, most loving and supportive man
I've had the privilege of sharing moments with.
So my little sky connection would be for
Eric who I miss very much,
and who knows maybe he's smiling down on me right now!

I so deeply love the way you captured the sky in the water a surface so fluid and changing like life. I love the way you wrote about Eric - I could feel his warmth emanating from your words. Sending you peace and light. Thank you for sharing such beauty as a part of Connie's memorial.

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

I’m here again!

This is just a little test, I’m missing bloglandia!
