Life is so ironic...

It takes sadness to know what happiness is,
noise to appreciate silence
and absence
to value presence.

We all share in gift of the now
what you are,
what I am...
the presence of awe.

That's a picture of Dennis Severs' House, isn't it? If you ever come to London, go and visit it - it's absolutely wonderful!

Always inspired by the photos and given something to think about.

...very deep pensive writing today, wild woman. and very true.
we are in the midst of a heavy snow storm. rather than sit and wait for spring (my normal), i am watching it pile up and trying to see some beauty in it. perhaps your words will help.

You are wise and wonderful today sharon. I love that room but, if it were mine cobwebs and 3 inches of dust would be collecting on those drapes.

A bedroom laden with many stories and perhaps a few dark secrets to give the atmosphere some spice!

I see snow is blanketing your world! From a distance, this to me is a beauty I know nothing about! So I indulge in awe as our summer still struggles to find some kind of identity beneath the never far grey skies!

Not too long now till school returns, and I will have to lay aside my camera journeys to cemeteries - my latest haunt - and any wild forgotten beaches I can find on the peninsula. All this while dodging the streams of tourist traffic down my peninsula way! It's always good to start early and avoid the beaches by mid morning and the supermarket near lunch-time!

You sound as if you are wandering with a few mixed feelings - especially evident in this post!

Just letting you know that you are never far from my thoughts! Often wonder what your wild spirit is dreaming of doing next!

A super BIG hug and a special hug for Scratchy too!
