Light Captured

The sudden light of cloudburst sprinkles and pastel hues and hopscotch lines creating rainbow designs is the question in the artists eyes while nature answers to her why’s; what is this Light?  Is it electromagnetic radiation that is visible and perceivable by the human eye?  Is it the colours between red and violet.   Does it have frequencies of terahertz, wavelengths and nanometers; equal to one billionth of a metre?  Is there is the sensation of perceiving light; it is brightness and sudden light; the medium of illumination…is that what makes sight possible. There is the illumination where it’s derived … Continue reading Light Captured

All That Remains 

From the “Wild Irish Way, the road that leads to Minard Castle where it stands proud on a hill overlooking the Irish bay.  It’s ruins prominent; with views across the Irish Sea to the edge of glaciers to Ireland’s southern Peninsula. J took me there today. I loved it.  A castle commanding one’s attention; one of only three of the 16th century built; it’s forbidden to enter now.  At high tide it remains a citadel submerged; once beautiful but left in despair.  There are places where time and nature toss the waves rolling, weakening the sea walls leaving all thrown; … Continue reading All That Remains

About Translation 

I bend my mind below, Longing to hear your songs.  It is where we reclaim it back;  That is what you teach.  You are my ecstasy,  My reason for being Returning to me, With the anticipation  Of life and love.  And above all; I believe in you, That this is that place;  Where nothing can stop the art, Nor the artist; this gift of creating.  We will live this life  And all that we imagined.  No one can stop one’s will From harrowing wounds; And distress though it maybe great, Is not yours, but it is others.  All I do, … Continue reading About Translation

Heart

   “There are people who take the heart out of you, and there are those who put it back.” – Elizabeth David  It’s true… Yes, I am a food lover and one of my favourite hobbies is discovering and creating new recipes. It is some my husband and do together and he has been a great inspiration to me and although I don’t always admit it, ‘I think he is a better cook than me.’ So living here in Wales I have discovered it has some of the best produce, Welsh lamb, beef and food and drink in the entire … Continue reading Heart

Winter in France

Situated near the Pyrenees and located in close proximity to the Mediterranean coast. The climate of this French city is very wet with snow and a cold climate normally found in the Midi-Pyrenees area of southern France, alongside the banks of the Garonne River. The winter months in the Mid Pyreneese are inspiring, when daytime times during January and February average around 12°C, and on occasion reach more than 15°C, although the nights can feel a little chilly. Although the winter months between November and February are nothing like the cold, snowy affairs of northern Europe, the mountains do see … Continue reading Winter in France

Happy Thanksgiving in America

Can you feel the weather changing? I can and it beginning to feel like the holidays here in Swansea Wales. And yes, of course it is raining! But nevertheless, yesterday I ventured out to visit the shops and they all have their Christmas decorations on now and they are so beautiful! It makes me want to start decorating. Except when I returned to my car; I was handed a parking violation for going 30 minutes over my time limit! It’s a no wonder anyone can get any shopping done! It might be unfortunate, but those Christmas collectables might have to … Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving in America

Meet Norbutt and Doris

   Hi Doris and Norbutt! It has been a good day today. I went by our new farm house today. Almost ready! I told the Seller that the sheep (Doris and Norbutt) could stay. But he had to fix the barn first. He agreed. He said they could never be separated because they love each other.  More than that, there is love there. I can feel it already. Love as close to the truth as I know it!  Believing there are certain things beyond anyone’s understanding. Like when two people work together to accomplish a greater life; our future; our … Continue reading Meet Norbutt and Doris
