Celebrating Marriage and Love for All in Australia.

I created this to celebrate the result of a postal plebiscite in Australia on marriage for all – and not just confined to a man and woman as has been the case until now.

The results today were 61% in favour of the plebiscite against just under 40% against. There are huge celebrations in Australia at the result and with the knowledge that legislation will soon be introduced into Parliament to legalise love and marriage for all.

Congratulations, Australia!

Not knowing

I may not know my original face
but I know how to smile.
I may not know the recipe for the diameter
of a circle but I know how to cut a slice
for a friend.  I may not be Mary or the Buddha
but I can be kind.  I may not be a diamond
cutter but I still long for rays of light
that reach the heart.
I may not be standing on the hill of skulls
but I know love when I see it.

Soul Songlines

May the sacred song of the stars

Imbued with the millennia of dancing with Divinity

Softly sink into the presence of your being.

May starsong radiating within you illuminate

the encrypted title deed to your country:

Your soul songlines tracking from the stars

as pathways to your precious path on earth,

in this unique incarnation of yours.

(This is an excerpt from my forthcoming book: “The Crazy Crone – Living a Wild and Adventurous life”)

Spider Drawing Down Magic

I created this from an image I had of rocks on the Jurassic Coast of the  UK, plus an image super-imposed of a photo I took of a spider when I was living in Woodenbong, on the rim of an ancient volcanic caldera.high up in the Border Ranges of northern New South Wales, Australia.

The spider was weaving its web against the window at night and the flash of my camera caught a very good image of it at work. With the stones colourised behind it, this image reinforces for me the image of Spider as weaving the web of the universe.

Healing Childhood Trauma

Today I read about childhood disassociation and escape into daydreaming and fantasy and it was a hell of a shock to realise it’s something I did as a child and which has carried on throughout my life.

I know what sparked it off so today I decided to create a healing image of leaving the dark behind and walking the yellow brick road to a future healed of the trauma of the past. Been very, very emotional!

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.
