A Walk on the Quiet Side

We had a power cut this morning which meant that all things technological ceased functioning. So I decided to enjoy the quiet time, read my kindle, then took myself off to bed for a couple of hours as I had severe sciatica in my left hip and leg. When I awoke, the pain had eased, so I continued enjoying the peace and quiet, with Maggie Mae’s head on my lap and stroking her and feeling so relaxed. Maggie Mae is the young Border Collie we are currently fostering while we search for a home for her.

When the power came back on, I created this image to honour our need for down time and to enjoy that time WITHOUT FEELING GUILTY!  We don’t need to be doing something all the time, we can spoil ourselves and nurture our body, mind and spirit with a bit of rest and relaxation. It does us a power of good and helps our creativity and self-healing.

 

What a Wonderful World!

I look around the internet and see so much creativity bursting forth, the path to a new world where all people can live up to their potential and where an individual’s talents are recognised and honoured, whatever they are.
We are in a great transition from the industrial revolution to the creative revolution, building a whole new, compassionate, loving, tolerant society.

 

Another world is not only possible,
she is on her way.
On a quiet day,
I can hear her breathing
