A small voice said,

let go,

and with all my senses aware,

I almost fell. Completely.

Then pulling back,

fearful of losing myself in the deep, still,

interior of being,

and then to perceive the blessing of being found.


About maskednative

I live in Ireland, in an extended cottage overlooking Waterford Estuary, privvy to constant changes of light on water, colour and movement, tides and people. I am anglo-Irish and although my initial intention was to live here for a year and a day, I am still here, a blow-in to these shores for the past fifteen years. There have been countless times when I wanted to run back to England with homesickness and relief, but for one reason or another, so far, it has not been possible. I surrender, the soul of Ireland has captured me, allowed a glimpse of the world behind the mask of everyday experiences, bringing forth a mixture of words and pictures from an ordinary everyday life, filled with ordinary everydayness that I offer as a celebration, to the creator of this truly wonderful planet.

      Thank you Virgilio, for your compliment, and your comments. Your return to the centre, to look, and see, as if for the first time, and find love, deeper than we could ever imagine.
