Coming Out ~ Expressing 'our' unique

Rapid cycling is a term sometimes used in explaining states of mental health,
I am given to 'rapid cycling'!  It comes as part of my creativity package!

When I'm cycling downward the feeling is low, low, like I get to feeling life is a chore, so darn hard work!
Conversely it is true for up-cycling. I get high as a kite, way up high, light and in love with my life!
This is why I'm prepared to put up with the lows without any medical modifications...

I want to be 'present' to all the parts of my life,
the entirety of me, for this is how I am able to express my unique.

This is how I 'Define the Divine' as beautifully expressed in this post by Connie at 
Dirtyfootprints Studio ~ It's Art

The post describes my way of saying the same thing, I call it ~ 'Align the Divine',
I resonate so much with this thought of connecting back to Source and our using the unique expressions we each have as a means of illuminating the gift of Being...

For Connie her connection to Divine is art, which is her beautiful intuitive painting,
on the other hand my connection to the Divine is photography.
For awhile I felt somewhat diminished by the fraternity of painters,
feeling they have exclusive rights on intuition in the art world. The reason being
I thought, that it was easier to express art intuitively through mark making and painting than photography.

However, I have revised my opinion!

The camera in my mind is nothing but a tool, just like the paintbrush,
or any other medium for the purpose of revealing our inner unique expression and
connection to the Divine.

So I have taken heart from this new paradigm shift, I'm coming out on this my 500th post and declaring ~

Intuitive Photography ~ My way of Defining the Divine!

Sharing with

Recuerda mi Corazon


Incredible, exquisite photo! I love it! It certainly "reflects" your "divine connection"! Am glad that you are re-claiming your unique expression of the Inner Divine connection through photography! I too am re-discovering this sense of connection with the Divine within. Silence has become my "yoga" - i.e: experiencing union with the Divine. How that expresses hasn't been *clearly* revealed as yet. I suspect through writing and photography as well... We shall see :) I'm still incubating... :)
Heart Hugs!

You describe so beautifully your creativity and how you have learned to find the divine in the highs and lows. I love your friends' painting, but I love your photography, too.

as we all view our journey through our own lens, and express with what tools we feel most drawn to, neither the tool, nor the product diminish the view. it is intuitively and expressively yours. and yours, my friend, is a gift.

My lows last forever and the plateaus, when getting back up,even longer. Then there is the sharp punctuation of creativity, the moment when something is selected, attempted, created. Then all the waiting and watching for it is worth it.

"I want to be 'present' to all the parts of my life,

first of all
your words are ART!!!
and i so get your words here...the expression of photography
is this an art?
i say yes
yes yes
of course I could be slightly bias, but
what the hell
it is a way I express
a way you express
our form of creativity
that to me

love you soul lovely lady
love and light

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


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
