Taking Notes

I've been taking note, sifting and sorting both physically and mentally,
I like to have a good old clear out now and again,
to re-evaluate the worth of things...




Parring down to the essentials and simplifying has always been a way of life for me ~
My motto is if I don't use it, appreciate it, believe in the worth of it then it has to go...

This is my 495th post, I am also nearing my four year blogging anniversary and thinking about where I am going with it all. I'm not saying I'm about to give up my beloved 'FMB' but that I feel I have become somewhat scattered, maybe even a little lost!  Initially it was all about my images, I was in photography heaven for two whole years, shooting, posting and writing.  I was eager to post and took current advice to just let my blog 'evolve' which I did. I'm glad to say I did for I have met some wonderful, soulful bloggers over the years and experienced a real sense of belonging and love, but here's the thing, somewhere along the way I feel I have diluted myself, that I have lost some of my integrity, sense of purpose, which I want to re-capture.

I have many abstract swirlings going round my head with regard to photography and how I see it and none of these are do with technique but everything to do with life and living in the moment, intuitive photography it is called. It is wonderful, all embracing, therapeutic, even life changing...

So this is my intention:

To gather myself back to me, to concentrate my effort, to focus and become more creative in my offerings in both words and image, to look for new ways to connect.  I might go a bit quiet here while this is going on, I might even re-name my blog with the 500th post, I might lose some of my present connections but I have to listen to this strong voice within. Always!

Yours intuitively.... SF

I totally get this... Diluting yourself, needing to be true to your Heart and your own unique expression, and the need to refocus. I am feeling it too. I have found your posts rich, authentic and heartfelt, and I enjoy visiting here. I look forward to more of your "intuitive photography" :)

Navigating Home

Well here I am again!  Wonder of wonders that I am even showing up at all in this little blog wilderness having uprooted my faithful old friend Finding my Bliss by way of messing up the template!  The one who safely sailed me through Bloglandia for all of those years was interfered with in an abrupt manner (see previous post).   I know it may sound silly but I feel like I am grieving for what was my sanctuary and residence, I am feeling kind of lost with nothing familiar to cling to, but alas I do have one place that is very much like home and so there I will share a little haiku with my friends... By way of haiku navigate a place called home the 'heart' gathering... On the subject of home and the insecurity of having no solid ground to tread on, that's where I am finding myself at present as I'm in the throws of purchasing a new home and going through a very sticky patch with the legalities of it all.  It's going at a snail's pace and I'

Gathering Myself

Today I'm taking a little me time, doing what I love to do, just digital doodling. My mind has been on dolls, motherhood, Mary and the coming season. Recently an acquaintance posted about  ' Rag Doll ',  this is me at the moment, I feel a bit like a rag doll, the stuffing has been knocked out a little. So I'm taking time to just be, to gather myself, to see where I can patch things up a bit, maybe a dash of rouge will do the trick!  I'm giving myself some 'Mary mother love'. I'm sending back my thanks via Virgin a Day Recuerda mi Corazon I once had a sweet little doll, dears, The prettiest doll in the world; Her cheeks were so red and so white; dears, And her hair was so charmingly curled. But I lost my poor little doll, dears, As I played in the heath one day; And I cried for her more than a week, dears; But I never could find where she lay. I found my poor
