Recently, I wrote about receiving a sign, and about yielding. You can catch up on that post here. What I’ve realised since then is that though I may be willing to acknowledge the sign in the sky, and though I feel broadly clued in to what the sign points to, I am well and […]
Has the sky ever sent you a sign?
I got one a few days ago.
It’s my favourite kind of Sunday – no plans, nowhere to be, no need to watch the clock. There’s room for musing, so here we are. This morning, after a sleep in, I listened to a long podcast. While that was playing I gathered up clothes, I stripped the bed, and chased dust bunnies around […]
We’ve all got stuff. Big stuff, little stuff, every day stuff, every now and then stuff and stuff we’ve forgotten we own. So. Much. Stuff. Today I decided to wrangle the stuff, stuff, stuff and nonsense in my bathroom. The first thing I discovered was that the shelves in my bathroom cabinet have an almost […]
Trees have a kind of magical power in my life. (Thank you, Enid Blyton!) When I look at them, I gain perspective. Summer trees aren’t better than winter trees, because it’s not about the number of leaves a tree has, its about the tree itself. A tree is tenacious, strong, grounded, life giving. It doesn’t […]
Something has me mystified. Life has many existential questions that have been pondered down the ages… What are we doing here? Why is the sky blue? Where do we go when we die? Does anyone know the secret to not spilling something on a white top? I’d like to add a couple of my own […]
I had a dream this morning that I was walking into a valley, initially spacious and green, dotted with wildflowers. As I walk, the terrain changes around me. Less vegetation, less colour, less of what’s familiar. The air is thicker, sometimes it’s harder to breathe easily. The sky is, as always, above me, sure and […]
When my alarm set that Taylor Swift groove going at 7.44am today (I know, that’s late for some of you) I thought, you better be here soon Joe. Joe the electrician arrived after the allotted 8 – 9am hour, fixed my dodgy lights toot sweet and left me up, dressed and caffeinated, when I really […]
Today while I was sprinkling Italian herbs over my baked beans on toast, I had this thought: It wasn’t that having baked beans on toast for lunch was bumming me out, I quite like them. They’re filling, but they’re not my dream! I was in unconscious meme creation mode because I was reflecting on a […]
Good afternoon people of the interweb. Today, I have a question for you. How do you feel about asking questions? Are you first with your hand metaphorically up in life’s classroom, waggling for acknowledgement, or are you slumped in your seat, not sure you’re understanding what’s going on, but determined not to ask a “dumb” […]
