About

 ‘In the silent, sacred earth, roots and stones are dreaming.’

There is a gazebo at the end of the garden. It overlooks the estuary. When the tide is in, sea water pools around seaweed covered rocks. The sound is peaceful, meditative. I drink an early morning coffee, listen to the birds singing morning songs, watch a spider spin his fragile life between timber beams above my head. Even in the harshest of winters, the rise and fall of tides, sun-light on water, movement of sky, cloud, moon and stars, allows an awareness of nature behind the mask of perceived reality. I offer my words and pictures in celebration and gratitude to God, for allowing me a glimpse behind the mask.

  1. Hello,

    I stumbled upon your blog today. You have a great network. I love literature. Do stop by sometime at my blog too. I have started a magazine on my blog called ‘Alphabet and You’. Would love you to submit for the next issue. Also it would be kind of you if you could share the link with your writer friends.

    Thank you,
    Michelle D’costa.

      Thank you Steven. Your visits to my blog are much appreciated, and I always enjoy reading yours.
      It seems that the place we choose to live, or work, (or should I say chose us) has it’s own voice, teaching us to listen. It’s always a wonder to hear it but the hard part, is trying to express that feeling.
      A community of writers, artists and poets such as this, brings new insights that I am always grateful for.
