Needing calm...

...I wish I was sitting in a little secluded garden somewhere...with a blue sky overhead...surrounded by colourful flowers and a book in my hand. I wish I could hear the birds sing. I wish I was able to forget about worries, about work, about the future...I wish I was able to tie the anxiety into a bundle and forget about it. I wish!

The way we were...

...visited the local folk museum recently and took a couple of photos...after having part of my family tree researched last year - it's made me look at the past in a new way... my family were real real lives and they are part of me!

I love the quote from a Vietnamese Monk - Thich Nhat Hanh... 'If you look deeply into the palm of your hand, you will see your parents and all generations of your ancestors. All of them are alive in this moment. Each is present in your body. You are the continuation of each of these people'.

how true...
Off on a little holiday tomorrow...happy days... x be back soon!

What a difference a season makes...

There's a street that I love just near where I work and I'd forgotten that I'd taken a photo in December time... I loved the shape of the trees. I'd taken another picture recently and was amazed how beautiful they are right now with their branches full again...

Sorry seems to be the hardest word!

Have you ever said something to a friend or family member and as soon as the word or sentence left your regretted it? We've all done it. I did it a week ago and knew in my heart it was had hurt the other person and I knew what I had to do to make amends. I tried to forget about it...but like a fly in a room ... it buzzed around every other activity I did throughout the week. Saying 'sorry' can be the hardest word ...but here's a tremendous relief and calming influence not only on your side but on the side of the receiver. Saying 'sorry' creates a win-win situation. 'Sorry' left my lips and right away the pressure I'd been feeling left amazing that one small word can make a relationship whole again.

A couple more photos which I found taken in Carrickfergus Castle (which I love) and another taken from a car window of a gorgeous cloud (I love clouds too!)
