Stepping Back, to Step Forward.
Sue hits the nail on the head every time. Profound wisdom ❤
Taking a step back often feels like you have somehow failed, but in not stepping back I would be failing myself.
It’s hard this internal knowing, when you have no words to describe what it is you understand. It’s like you have spent years gathering together the various bits and pieces of a giant jigsaw puzzle in your mind. Each piece comes along at various points in your life and you have to juggle them about to see if they fit.
Then all at once you get one piece that slots into place and all the other pieces which you held suddenly now all fit into place. And yet you are still trying to make sense of what it is you are putting together, because we don’t have a picture box lid to understand just what kind of finished picture we are creating.
I felt the jumble of the…

Hawk and Ram
My friend is over from the UK wrapping up her life here, never to return.
So last week we took Loui and Pepi (dog I’ve been looking after) to the mountains to see the snow.
On the way we stopped at the Dam, there is a sunken village under it apparently.
While we were leaving the Dam a huge Hawk was hovering over it’s prey. We sat and watched it hovering and diving for ten minutes. We got pictures but they didn’t come out well, it just looks like a dot in the sky.While we were leaving the Dam a huge Hawk was hovering over it’s prey.

5 am the world still sleeps
Darkness hangs low like a shroud over the sun
Stillness, calm, quiet apart from a distant hum
Draw close your robe as the chill hits your bones
And thoughts fly back to a place once called home
Where the chill in the air keeps people in their homes
Feeling blessed and sad as I sit all alone
Watching and waiting for the sun to return.
6am a light goes on as someone awakes to start there day too
The sky turns Indigo and clouds show through
Car engines the first sounds to be heard
And I wonder what a life for those heading to work before even the birds
I sit and grasp my hot cup of tea and watch as my breath meets with the steam
And ponder on this life, the dream and wonder on when and why leave?
Our last breath dissolving into the stream…
Looking for some pics to share with a friend today and found this pic of Loui that I stole from the advert where I first saw and fell in love with him.
I was looking for a Husky pup, when this little face popped up and I instantly fell in love. Rang the guy at 11pm!!
My friend Lea and I went to pick him up from Lancashire and was greeted by a psycho dog, running round in circles, lunging at my face and biting my nose.
With heavy heart I said I couldnt take him, as I really needed a companion but when his owner told us that he had been re-homed three times already and they brought him back, I had to take him. My heart broke for him and his crazy ways.
He was 8months old when I got him and from being a puppy had spent 8-10hrs a day locked in the kitchen while his owners were at work. Hence his separation anxiety and high stress levels.
Its been a long road with him this past 5yrs, however, he has turned into a beautiful soul. He still has ‘issues’ but then dont we humans too?
After my Jasper went, I didnt think I would ever bond with another dog like that. But Loui is my saviour, if it werent for him id probably still be completely crippled and totally disconnected from my beloved Gaia.
Not sure who rescued who that day but we were meant to find each other ❤
What Are You Grateful for Today?
Gratitude is the greatest gift you can give yourself this season.
