Well,it wasn’t on the stairs and it didn’t have clogs on
It was a very cheeky and pretty mouse though
The cheeky and cute little mouse appeared in the garden as we where having a BBQ, looked at us and started to nibble the dogs bone close to where we were sitting
We spyed the mouse,the mouse spyed us and ran back into the bushes
A few minutes later the scene was repeated, and again and again. Until I threw the mouse a bit of food that we were eating, it picked it up with ease, despite the food being the size of it’s head and it then proudly retreated into the bushes with its prize
This afternoon my daughter and I went to Embelton Beach, wow
You arrive at the beach via a golf course and sandy dunes
At the top of the dunes is where the”wow”surfaces from within you
A huge sprawling sandy coast line, looking untouched by nature.
In the distance on a hill stands an ancient ruin if a castle
There were a few people on the beach today but considering it was a very warm Sunny in July, surprisingly few
It’s well worth a journey to this area just for this amazing unspoiled beach
I recently visited my mum to retrieve some of the photos of my childhood
It was a different world back in the late 60s and 70s. Everything seemed so innocent and timid
When you look back through the photo’s of your childhood; it wasn’t the world being innocent, it was you, reflective of your age, seen through your eyes and experience
Back in the 60s and 70s the world was as it always was, intersperesped with wars conflict and injustices
My world in 2018 is still innocent, my eye’s protect me from injustices, conflict and wars. They show me hope and happiness
What do your eyes show you?
Where am I ?
Actually, I don’t know!
How did I get here?
Thats easy,I took my dog for a walk and started going down paths I hadn’t noticed before. One path led to another and so on
What am i doing now?
Another easy one. I am taking photos of insects and all things small. One of my favourite hobbies in the world
Audio books silenced. ..
Radio in car off. ..
Music subscriptions unused…
All quiet please.
Too much noise, work, people talking
My need for silence is taking over, music , car radio and audio books etc will resume normal service in about 3 days time
Right now, take a journey with me
Let yourself pretend, just for a moment you are living my life. I will be your senses. ..Let’s begin
I can feel the warm summer sun beating down on my face and arms. A large colourful butterfly has just flew past my arm, just missing me
I am sitting on the grass watching my dog, roll around in total pleasure, scratching her back and head in pleasure
There is a gentle breeze making the leafs on the tree rustle in excitement
A pigeon breaks the silence and in the distance a ice-cream van sings it’s happy song
My sandles are next to me along with my book
That’s the next half hour taken care of
What’s happening in your world?
I sat and listened. .
..ho ho ha ha ha came from one room, as the laughter yoga instructor took her class
..devotional chanting came from another room
..all around me, people were having their futures told to them via cards, crystal and personal objects
..the mindful guitar player set the scene for the day with her beautiful tones
..people were relaxing and healed from massage and reiki
..the smell of home made incense, wax melts and soaps filled the air
And electric and happy atmosphere
Yes, definitely this holistic festival I organised is a successful. I stroked my dog who sat next to me
Wow, the thinks you learn about yourself never cease to amaze me
Today via the BBC breakfast news it appears I suffer from ASMR, up until now I had never heard about ASMR and now it turns out that I have it
It’s full name is autonomous sensory meridian response
So what is this mystery condition, well it’s a tingling in the head /neck that is bought on by various stimuli, things like whispering, tapping, concentrating touching of your head
I thought everyone had that tingling pleasant sensation, well apparent not, ..well that’s a shocker
What better place to do a mindful walk than Moseley Bog
This morning I facilitated just such walk
With the most gentle breeze ever the group of us sat on a huge fallen tree and listened to life happening around us
We took part in a rainbow walk and searched for items, in the beautiful bog , the colours of the rainbow to take photos of
We mindfully ate strawberries, took part in guided mindful yoga stretches and then let stones give us life lessons
A lovely start to a Sunday
I am going to say the un-sayable
I am going to put in writing what everone is thinking but is afraid to say
I am going to risk “jinking “things
Are you ready for theses words?
If you are not or scared of jinking the future. . Look away now
Here it comes….
….We are having a wonderful sumer weather !
