The Immediacy of 'Now'

One of my favourite ways to write a post is the one of 'immediacy' and 'spontaneity'~>

Having laid for quite awhile in my bed before dawn lifted, feeling somewhat
troubled by the already awakened noise in my head
I sneaked down the stairs determined to set a positive tone
trying hard not to awaken the boys ~> my love and our two mutts...

Opening the blind to a brand new day, there Mr Frost
had already risen before me laying his beautiful white carpet...
and so had The 'Shepherd' who was hovering with his 'red morning warning'!
Whilst kettle was boiling I reached for my friend the lens and we engaged in note taking as follows ~>

Next for the magical elixir tea, then we proceeded to see what our other friends were saying, I remembered at this point some advice from a previous day, needing to keep this thought close I revisited Stephanie of Mango Studio who spoke of  "contentment, accepting and embracing of where we are", and although this 'acceptance' is a serious contender for the monkey mind, it's a constant battle....

My next discovery is over at  The Photographic Sage, through Patricia, who is posting The A~Z of Contemplative Photography, it was in the form of a word that I have never come across before 'Zoetic' meaning "pertaining to life, vital". Talk about synchronicity, this was just what I had been pondering in my bed about vitality and life, that this of all things is what I yearn for...

So there you have it a little impromptu tour of my morning...
I may even choose this word Vitality as my word for the year, I haven't made up my mind yet, still at the pondering stage... I think it is more likely to be a phrase as one seems to be emerging as a result of my 'centering prayer of love' and gaining clarity which I will post about soon if not sooner!

I leave my morning's pondering with thoughts on gratitude, I am grateful for the connectedness that this on-line space offers,
for the efforts each one of us make in supporting another, by our words, by sharing encouragement, by showing love and compassion to those in need.

I would like to mention that the 'Call to gather for 
Healing & Strength' 
is happening today on

here the last stars of a cold winters night are hiking up their petticoats and bowing to the promise of a new day. i started long ago in the dark thinking about postcards from paradise, and how we are all healed by nature. i see everything as interwoven circles. so that as you wake and reflect on light, i feel your heart surging in the tides that crest between us. your thoughts form in the welcoming air and touch mine and a thousand other points of light. this morning i am considering how healing and love form in every cell, breath, thought and action; everything we are and do is an offering. one must merely choose love anew.

Vitality! What a wonderful word to carry with you through the year! To try to open up for yourself, what it may mean in the coming months. My word is 'embrace.' Thank you for your spontaneity and your vitality!

A friendly street light illuminates the dark path as does bright hellos! Just dropping in dears to say hello to all at Haiku my Heart, everyone in the haiku home, to say you are never far away from my thoughts those of you in the circle of friends in the birthplace of my ongoing love for small words with large meaning. Have a lovely weekend... love from foxysue Recuerda mi Corazon

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
