My First Blog.

OK - so here goes

Another course finished last night, and some amazing people are already trying new avenues for their many talents. As such I suggested this blog may be a forum for their work and new material/research that comes up from time to time.

A beautiful sunny day today, some may say wasted. I say wasted with grace. With the sun on my back spending time gently snipping off chamomile flowers between the pincers of my fingernails. I allowed the exquisite chamomile aroma, strengthen by the heat to take me from the moment. Remembering an afternoon on Holy Isle, rows of chamomile plants, with flowers to numerous to possibly collect. Yet the gentle aroma also meant it was impossible to hurry, so gradually, drinking in that perfume, sensing the gentle breeze on my face a basket of white flowers was filled, to dry and store for tea. Coming back into the moment with a only handful of flowers, more than enough for me - perfection ;~}

WHAT NOW? by Jean Harris ©

The end has arrived……………………………………

The breaking of a bond.

We came bringing the gifts of life to the table;

We shared our lives, our thoughts, our fears;

Together we laughed and we cried;

We were guided with wisdom, warmth and love.

And trod unknown paths of revelation.

Do with it what you will…………………

It won’t be easy, but what rewards?

As new friends we parted with sadness and hope.

We all hold the light gently in our hands,

don’t let it go out.

………………….it is the arrival of the beginning.
