Walk about…words,pictures and paint.

Over the passed month I’ve been so busy doing these small events locally that spending time painting for my own creative desires and needs honestly hadn’t been happening. I’ve worked on a few small pieces and done some commission work but true painting from the soul….. I miss it..

Sans the painting I’ve been doing okay.. Trying to rebuild my relationship with my son after the separation from my ex and trying to find myself amongst the rubble I left in my wake.. I have to admit after I came bak from the UK last year I basically freaked.. 17 years of my life, my children and the world as I knew it gone…… So here we are a new year dawning just around the corner, me in a new life, new place and new people. Sorry for the digression it’s early here and I’m squirreling in a sea of med head being rather reflective. The point being of this post photos… Yes despite all these silly words pictures will arrive shortly. I’ve been reducing my pain pills and have started walking lots, painfully at times but with my balance fading and my memory changing I figure everything I can do to keep this fucking Parkinson’s at bay I should probably do. No on to the walk about. All of these photos were taken on with my phone and edited with either Instagram or a simple photo edit app.

** This last pic was on a walk at a little pull out. It has no title or purpose other than to make me happy.
Now time for some written words:

The dawn comes so quickly
When I’m with you.
There are times when I know
Not whether we chase the night
Or run from the sun
Your thoughts made real
By the strength of my
Grip. My desires made
Real by all of you.
There is not moment in time
That my thoughts don’t rest
To the taste I mouth or
The beat of your tender heart
Next to mine.
For it is not the ropes that
Restrain us but the ties that
bind us.

More photos of the world I see.

Over the course of the last few years I’ve finally learned how to take photos. All to the magic of the iPhone, Instagram and apparently I’ve an eye of this kind of stuff. I’ve had the pleasure of traveling the world this year a gift of experiences I’ll be forever thankful for. I’d like to say it was a good year and in a way it was. I learned a great deal about myself my likes and dislikes at a very deep personal level. But I digress I’ll save the juicy bits and goals for 2015 for my end of the year post. So on with the photos shall we? Many of you who follow me on twitter or FB may have seen some of these, but most o you probably haven’t seen the collection in one spot for some time.

So off we go on a walk through my life and the world as I see it.

Clouds today’s little walk was all about looking up, because as many of you know we often forget to see what right above us.

And yes I have played with the colors and textures a bit I find this is an easier was to explain it as how I see it.

No quite cumulonimbus but still a beautiful day for giant clouds and…….

Namaste
