Gratitude, Sand and Solitude

20140912_165916

Gratitude.  Thankfulness.  Abundance.  I felt all of these as I stood alone but for a seagull searching for supper a few feet away (later joined by Alfred, in the picture). The incoming tide crept towards me cooling the sand still warm from an unusually hot September day. Still and centred, I felt at one with the Universe which had again delivered the ‘Or better …’ In my last post I mentioned Dolphin Cottage and it was as delightful as it […] Read more »

Dr Dain And The Dolphins

How can it get any better than this?” is the new buzz phrase on the block, so I thought I’d give it a try.    Dr Dain Heer’s my new ‘Go To” guru and I’m lovin’ him and his insights.   Why so?  In the words of the late Max Bygraves, “I wanna tell you a story”. Every now and again, the Cancerian in me finds expression and I’ve been yearning to be near the sea.  If that sea was a […] Read more »

Meetings at […] Read more »

Did you realise, for example, that for five years Maya was mute, […] Read more »

2.3 Decades And Counting . . .

Twenty-three years ago I was enjoying Day 4 of our honeymoon in Hong Kong before moving on to Bangkok and then Phuket.  Three weeks’ of fascinating discoveries and enchanting places.  First glimpse of our hotel in Phuket took my breath away.  Through the glass doors of a bright open Reception I saw brilliant white sand lapped gently by astonishingly blue water. The bungalow rooms, each with their own front door, were built around a courtyard filled with fragrant exotic flowers […] Read more »

Where Water Goes Energy Flows

earth

As we look out into the cosmos, the one thing we know with our current limited vision is that water on Mother Earth separates us from the massive expanse of universal creation. And it is the water sustaining our world which enables life.  Four-fifths of Mother Earth is covered by this precious substance and our physical vehicles, our bodies, are 75% water.  But the importance of water is not simply in the sustenance of our planet and bodies, but is […] Read more »
