A bloom that had never existed in the world before… ?



A baby was born today.
We’re told three hundred thousand babies are born each day around the world
That works out to be more than 200 babies born worldwide per minute.

A New Year…

After the advent of innocence, purity and potential…
With boldness, grace & simplicity… ‘the dance’ of life continues…
Wordless truths,
lost amongst plentiful joy, trumpets and ‘tingles,
might bloom through dark emptiness,
healing wounds and lightening worries.

The thing that can be told is not the eternal thing…

Just notice.


Out of timidity, pride, determination and beauty, a timid nymph Amaryllis fell deeply in love with Alteo, a shepherd with unbelievable strength. Her affection was not returned. The oracle of Delphi suggested the thing Alteo desired the most was a bloom that had never existed in the world before. That bloom is said to have come from the blood of the dying Amaryllis’ heart.

Happy New Year.

Ta. And You Tanya. May your anchor hold…
…in the straits of fear,
When the breakers have told the reef is near;
Though the tempest rave and the wild winds blow,
Not an angry wave shall our bark o’erflow.
