A week in Wales day one: “Pause – Rewind – Play”

A subtle change in geography for a week has gifted me an action replay of the changing season from woody Winter into vividest Springtime. It makes me realise how much we get to enjoy that moment of pure, poised potential when we stop rushing forwards all the time; to appreciate that unique moment of held-breath before exhalation, of dynamic stillness “just before” something occurs, when the possibility of it “happening” first makes itself known and yet hasn’t…yet.

We get to sense the absolute perfection in all of it; all the variables, the possibilities, the before and afters, the stages in between.

Imagine never having to hold onto it all, to hoard, to carry the perceived symbols and weight of everything that ever happened to you, or to keep reminding yourself so that you don’t make the same mistakes again, or to share it or make sense of it in a format you can immediately pass on as some sort of duty of care to others, or to lug it all around with you wherever you go… Continue reading

Peeling back layers

There is a chair in my life that’s, quite literally, always been there – and don’t so many of us have such pieces of furniture and other accumulated objects that are ‘just there’ because they are? This one – an … Continue reading

The point of creation

What is the point of creation? It’s a question I’ve asked a lot over time and even more recently…less because I feel I still seek an answer to it than because I enjoy the quick fire response that comes boomeranging … Continue reading

Life is full of openings…and other wondrous stories

Something happened this weekend that took the lid off a box of stories I hardly knew I was harbouring; quite a bounty, as it happens, and with some distinct themes running through them all. The reason that they surfaced and … Continue reading

Keeping your balance

This morning, I woke feeling really off balance; though its been creeping up on me for a few days (probably not helped by the multiple solar flares that have been taking place over the Bank Holiday…). My muscles hurt, limbs felt … Continue reading

The grass is always greener where you look for something green

It’s been a long weekend of revisiting ‘home turf’ and walking in parks – lots of parks – because its just one of those things about being a dog owner that, even on holiday, you’re guaranteed to go for long daily … Continue reading

Living in ‘the now’…or updating your status?

The subject of this post has almost  made it to the pages of this blog before…but clearly wasn’t quite ready until suddenly, this morning, it became an irresistible topic that I wanted to share. Why? Because, at a time when … Continue reading
