March 5, 2017 - With Intergrity

the inch

A n   I n c h .

It is my integrity that is important.

Is that so selfish?

It sells for so little,

but it’s all we have left in this place.

It is the very last inch of us,

but within that inch

we are free.

May 15, 2015 - Army of Ink Sailing Still

army of ink sailing still

A time to go – place to stay.

On this particular day, something precious came to its end.  Two breaths became one.

Footnote:  This little girl’s previous arrival is here but I’ve since found other useful layers of meaning – not relating to loss …..

A docked boat is one that has been taken out of a damaging environment for repair and restoration. It’s going nowhere right now, but it still has a place – and relevance.   I think this ‘pulling up’ process is one we have to continually engage in – and make time for.   To restore ourselves.  To stabilise and question; ‘Where to from here?’   But the pace of life too often gets in the way.  Interrupts.  And doing ‘nothing’, taking time out for ourselves, isn’t something viewed in a positive light.   So it’s the ‘stopping’ I feel in the image that’s important – and in urging us to do the same.

“A time to go – a place to stay”?  reflects not only creating a place in our lives for those who we have lost but it could also be about choosing (in our living lives) what to move away from and what to hold on to and really importantly….. what we can take from all of that’s made us who we are and use it in the building of our future selves.

May 11, 2015 - Look On The Bright Side

 

PARIS NOTRE DAME

 

A Mother’s Day story.

Grief can plant you in a lonely and isolated place because culturally we’re conditioned to ‘look on the bright side’, and ‘get on with things’.   So when the ‘bright side’ eludes you and you struggle to ‘get on with things’, you can be left feeling pretty grim – and somewhat down on yourself.

September 16, 2014 - Be There

 

In the world of ‘likes’ and  ‘friends’ and ‘followers’, even if we have one good friend, one person that can ‘be there’ for us – that’s still valuable, meaningful. And we’re still valuable, worthy human beings too – even if unpopular on social media. This is  Tori Amos and her daughter Tash.
