Skin needs touch to be.
Fingers tracing down the spine,
Leaves a fire wake

As the kiss of sun
touches skin winter tired
Instantly revives

Warm hands dipped in oil
Kneading away knots, tension
Contentment descends

The sting of nettle
The discomfort and itch
Irritates yet wakes

A lovers caress
Tender, passionate, urgent
Arouses, ignites

Skin needs touch to be
Abundant, sensitive, real
Lavished and honest.

It has become obvious to me, whilst trying to keep this blog up-to-date, that there is a very clear link between my happiness and my productivity.

The happier I am in my personal life, the more difficult it becomes for me to put virtual pen to virtual paper and be creative and productive.  And I actually don’t know how I feel about this.

I have quite a number of projects on the go – but none of them seem to be going anywhere fast.

And yet, I am seeing more, doing more, loving more, enjoying more and discovering more than I ever have.

I have more material at my disposal, but less drive to use it.

Dolly Parton said, ‘Don’t get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life’ and boy is she right.

But what happens if you get so busy enjoying life that you neglect to challenge yourself and allow your creativity to stagnate..?

I think in terms of my work/life balance – I am truly blessed.  I work in an environment of happiness and pleasure.  I am one of the lucky ones who gets to pursue my passion in my workplace and am a part of people’s social life and therefore, ‘happy place’.  I live to dance and teach dance to live.  What a delicious mutualism.

Now if I could just force myself to sit still long enough to create something worth reading..!!  This 365 day challenge is taking years to complete!

My son and I collect squirrels.

We don’t actually catch them and keep them.  We just collect our sightings of them.
Every day with a squirrel in it is a good day.

He rang me recently to tell me he’d had a 10 squirrel day!  Wow!

And then I went and had a 14 squirrel day… The most ever!  Loving this picture of a purple squirrel too…

I love this time of day at this time of year.

When the trees have shed their leaves and stand proud in all their naked glory.
When the winter sun gives forth the last of its colour to the sky.
When trees are silhouetted against a backdrop of graduated shades of sunset.
And when cool, still water honours the beauty with perfect reflection.

I wish I’d taken this picture!

Day 333 - Dancer with Heart

A watercolour by Cate Parr.

Cate Parr is an English born artist living in America. A lot of her work captures the beauty and grace of a pretty face. I’m drawn to the colours and the downcast eyes in many.
Shy… Demure… Wistful… Romantic… Melancholy… Thoughtful… Seductive…

Dancer with Heart, for me captures the freedom to be found in movement to music.

Day 326 - Fine Art

‘I like art, and by art I mean music, poetry, sex, paintings, the human body, literature…
All of this is art to me.” ~Hunter Reveur

I would add to this the art of nature, spoken and unspoken conversation and dance…
