focus

Despite my best intentions, life, love and the universe opted to change my focus and my direction…
I chose to go with the flow and see where the adventure would take me.
In the time since my last post I have traveled to beautiful places, spent time with amazing people, watched my children learn to use their wings and soar, and let love fill my heart and soul. I have danced. With people. With music. With life. And with love.

The adventure continues…

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…

Day 322 - Breathing

‘Music to me is like breathing – I don’t get tired of breathing, I don’t get tired of music.’ ~Ray Charles.

Breathe music…
Breathe dance…
Breathe in the moments…

And then when the music, the dance, the dancer and the moment combine – it takes our breath away.

Day 306 - Beach Adventure

A day of stolen adventure…

A long beach walk. Climbing sand dunes. Picnic on a pillbox. Geography and geology. Tackling a raging river and not quite winning. Sandstorms in the Kalahari Dessert. Deployment of a human shield. Colour-catching. Duck flowers. Coffee and brambles. White houses and light houses. The Apocalypse and Armageddon. And musical journeys.

It was a good day to have a good day.

Day 296 - Be Eccentric.

If purple is considered to be a mark of eccentricity, then I love being eccentric. Usually.

Standing in a queue I had my ipod in my hand and my earphones in place when I heard two people behind me saying…

‘Wow – she must really like purple!’
‘Yeah, look, she even has purple in her hair…’
‘And a purple bag…’
‘Purple jacket, purple top and even purple shoes!’
‘I bet she takes out a purple purse when she pays…’

At which point I turned and said – you do know I can hear you, right?

And it was then I realised that I had forgotten to turn my music on…

Day 266 - Purple Puddles

It’s been a wet and soggy day and the world has looked more than a little grey.
It always seems more difficult to find the positives on a grey day.
But there have been little moments. A young busker, singing in the rain, with an absolutely fabulous voice made me stop and listen a while.
I have food in the oven that hasn’t been prepared by me, and a chilled glass of good wine.
And I have people in my life that make me smile. Some make me smile without even trying. Some make me smile because they try.

And this picture of purple puddles made me smile too. Little moments on a grey day…
