There is no such thing as a problem without
a gift for you in its hands.
You seek problems because you need their gifts
~ Richard Bach ‘Illusions’
Hmmn indeed! My lack of blogging and general creativity this year
is due to problems.. that have surfaced thick and fast one after the
other, some big, some small, the worst by far has been over the
past few months.. brought on by the actions of another..
someone we love very much.. things I can’t go into on here
as it isn’t my story to tell, even though it's very much
enmeshed into our lives. The pain is still there daily, and
it’s something that isn’t going to go away very soon…
so it’s something that I have to learn to live with..
forever ~ although my forever
is nothing compared to their own ~ it still is..!
Flying free on an open breeze..
Viewing life’s unwanted squeeze…
Ponderings.. on my surfacing angers and irritations…
at the judgements and criticisms of others...
what gifts do they have for me ??
Time will tell ~ I have an eternity ~
Patience ~ comes to mind (only) ~ already..
easier said than done!
Jonathan Seagull discovered that boredom and fear and anger
are the reasons that a gull’s life is so short,
and with these gone from his thoughts,
he lived a long fine life indeed.

from ‘Jonathan Livingstone Seagull’ ~
Don't believe what your eyes are telling you.
All they show is limitation.
Look with your understanding,
find out what you already know,
and you'll see the way to fly.

I hope you lovely bloggers are all well and having a good year..
I have been hopping about infrequently trying to pop into
my favourite blogs now and then, when I’ve had the
minutes to spare.. not nearly as often as I’d have liked..
hopefully I will have a little more mind space
and time now, to get back into things…
and already feeling pleasure at the thought of it : )
