Minimalist Buddha

We found this Buddha sculpture In Swansea the other day. I didn’t really know what kind of Buddha it was, but something spoke to me to take it home. This minimalist beautiful art figurine depicts a Zen Buddha sitting in meditation. The artist utilises a unique design that suggests meditation, as the heart and mind rise above the loins. Hand-carved from suar wood. The Buddha sits in meditation with no focus on the details of the eyes, nose and mouth. It was designed a detail-less which adds to the magic of the whole. You can place a Buddha wherever it … Continue reading Minimalist Buddha

Art Carved

What is the condition that distinguishes us from animal, plant and from inorganic matter, including the capacity for growth, reproduction, functional activity, and continual change preceding death. Every human story is a life written and represented; and from there we exist. There are the experiences where we feel real emotion; just as I know emotion is not a fictional pseudonym. We seek to dream and dream about the things we seek; of a spiritual reality and a destiny greater than the merely mortal. What are those things that are more than merely mortal? The author with a prose; the lecturer … Continue reading Art Carved

Old Lustre Still

Early possible Société Céramique made some history in Maestrich. Then Petrus Regout came along and made Lustre Soup bowls out of clay, dipped them in glaze and named it pottery in the Goudkust pattern I do believe. Earth tone was his favourite. Possibly an early Alpine pattern. This particular bowl was loved a very long time. Someone’s favourite noodle bowl no doubt. As it appears has gone through many years of good service. It’s the oldest bowl I’ve ever seen. It’s a life that has been very useful. Survived longer than many. Description looks Moroccan. Old Orange rusty and brown. … Continue reading Old Lustre Still

Emotions

When he said, “I just want you to stay.” To do whatever it takes to keep me in you my arms. Stay with me even if times are challenging because I know you love me. I know that this is true.  Working on a Further Leave to Remain to stay here with you. The application process means hundreds of questions; lots of requirements; meeting every one. Submissions of different documents, photos and proofs; it’s really me; it is a true test of wills where the equation is patience, endurance and emotions.  Why does the truth require proof. I guess it … Continue reading Emotions

Selcouth

Selcouth (adj). The Origin of the word is Old English. It means strange and uncommon; the way you see things when you travel.  Everything seems different and foreign, and that is a good thing.  We travel to seek out the things we don’t see every day.  This is a photo I took on the cliffs above Langland Bay in Wales.   And even though its close to our home, it seems every time we travel there; this is a place where there is always something new and beautiful and different to see.  I love that.  Continue reading Selcouth

Words Rising

“We are bees then; our honey is language.” – Robert Bly WORDS RISING  I open my journal, write a few sounds with green ink, and suddenly fierceness enters me, stars begin to revolve, and to pick up alligator dust from under the ocean. The music comes, I feel the bushy tail of the Great Bear reach down and brush the sea floor. All those lives we lived in the sunlit shelves of the Dordogne, the thousand tunes we sang to the skeletons of Papua, the many times we died – wounded – under the cloak of an animal’s sniffing, all … Continue reading Words Rising

Strength in Knowledge 

It is rare if you find someone who can completely turn your world around, but to find someone who loves the same things as you like traveling, exploring, music, culture and the arts and adventure; I think is even more rare.  We will tell each other things that we’ve never shared with another soul and together we will absorb everything. We will talk and actually you always want to hear more.  We will share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and listen to all life’s experiences that have been thrown us.  … Continue reading Strength in Knowledge
