To be or not to be…

If one is to be, then one needs to act, this needs direction – acting and even unscripted improvisation is triggered by direction…
Guide me oh thou great director…
Hummm… why would I be guided?
Growth, fruit, decay and death are part of the seasonal drama that sees old make way for new…
We recently hosted 10 caterpillars and watched the stages as they grew, formed crysalis and grew into 10 butterflies… 8 flew off to fates unknown, 2 malformed were unable to fly; undirected they died.

…MORE bubbles!

Further to my post: Blog Post Fri 12th August Bubbles   …
…if only our bubbles might burst…  but then, what might we construct… ?

More bubbles?

I love some of my bubbles. And you might yours too!
Perhaps it’s good to absorb yourself, emerse yourself, and really drink your fill before you share your cup with a neighbour.
Don’t be distracted by the bitter wind, but embrace the shelter and the soaring eagle, the intricate creation, the unfathomable distance. Enjoy the sillyness and fragility of a laugh, don;t let the bugg*** get you down.  
Blow more bubbles!
Who knows where you may glide.

The fleeting glimpse…

Think about those moments that you don’t get time to capture, hang on to the resonance, the after image, the shiver, the glow… grab that, and embrace what you might have missed… life being lived, growth, warmth, laughter, release… and let the strife strive like a bitter wind on its way to nowhere, they will shrivel in their own kingdoms… turn the other cheek and think of the moments you don’t get time to capture and savor them…

I’ve chopped it off…!

Well I’ve gone and done it, I’ve chopped it off.
After 6 months of fecundity and bloomin’ marvellous protuberances she’s started to drop.
We had 8 blooms on one stem and 9 on another. But over the last few weeks we’ve lost the lot.
Procrastinate not… the decision has been made – I’ve trimmed it down to the third node on each stem to see if there’s any more juice in the old stick.
And yup, signs of autumn are in the air, I said it! Alas all good things come to pass and life turns corners and perspectives change. Thanks heavens.
So if you need to prune something do it, enjoy the fullness and move on.
And empty page can be so full of possibilities…
Quorsum haec, cui bono.
Cut it out, drop it, chop it off…  as the actress said to the proverbial bish bash bosh!

Bubbles…

Living in bubbles, only sharing stuff with those we encounter and reach out to. Our horizons though wide, are often limited and distant. We fail to see much beyond what’s familiar. We might have a wealth of experience and knowledge but still we fail to ‘know’ a vast majority of others in our world. Often right under our nose there are worlds that we don’t share. Often they are behind us, sometimes beside us, often ahead of us, and regularly below and above us. If only our bubbles might burst and we could live together on a shared plain… but then, what might we construct… ?
