WALKING INTO THE LIGHT

” The windows of my soul I throw wide open to the sun.”  John Greenleaf Whittier.

I know that pain and suffering are one side of the coin of life,

thus accept them and grow through them,

whilst remaining vigilant to the joy and light within my heart,

and let them direct me.

UNITED WE STAND

Mt Abu people embrace me by Bridget Cameron small for emaiMyself, when I was 20, and some Mt Abu (Rajasthan, India) people share.

To live life with a compassionate and loving heart, to see all people, animals and life as brothers and sisters, to share with kindness and to remove all fear of death, knowing that it is only a transition. These are the keys to our redemption.  We are a dream, part of the greater dream, and our consciousness moves through time…

I think all we need is 50.01% of the population with the power to say ‘no’ to governments, corporations, magnates and media greed and deception, for a change of consciousness to occur on this planet! It’s this thought that keeps me sane. Let’s be the very best we can be, and build a better dream together!  🙂 <3.

TORI AMOS Live from Her Majesty’s Theatre Adelaide, 16th Nov 2014

Last night, I had the great fortune of experiencing Tori Amos, live at Her Majesty’s Theatre, Adelaide, as part of her Unrepentant Geraldines Tour; which started May 5, 2014, with over 80 stops across Europe, North America, South Africa and now,  Australia.

Tori’s spell binding performance, kept people silent for most of the concert, emotionally connected to the ‘soul’ of her experience.

She felt at home in Adelaide, saying, ‘It’s Sam’s home, so I kind of feel like it’s my home in a way,” referring to  Samuel Adamson (collaborator on the London National Theatre production The Light Princess); which I think made her feel emotionally connected, adding richness to her performance, and our enjoyment of it  :).

For 2 solid hours she performed a wonderful selection of composition and songs, such as Parasol, Bliss off To Venus And Back (1999) China and Little Earthquakes off her debut album of the same name. She also sang Oysters off Unrepentant Geraldines before diving into Pandora’s Aquarium and Father LuciferShe’s addicted to Nicotine Patches, Lovesong,  her heart warming rendition of Somewhere over the rainbow, Cornflake Girl and Bliss came with the firm thumping close of the piano lid!  It was terrific, and the stage lighting set her off brilliantly, bathed as she was in a light show of multiple changing rainbow hues and stars.

With her distinctive and unique singing, song- writing and piano playing, just Tori Amos alternating between her Bösendorfer piano and her keyboard and rocking and straddling her piano stool. We were  transported on a roller-coaster of emotions and experience.

Thank you Tori Amos for coming to Adelaide and sharing your music!  You gave a virtuoso performance. It was inspirational and amazing!

These delicate flowers looked so fragile, yet so beautiful, waterlogged after the rain :).

Earth Horizon

This is a new painting I did to go with my poem,

At night, when the sea cradles the womb of the land.

Earth Horizon

 At night, when the sea cradles the womb of the land,
rippling liquid rainbows upon the sand,
I lie back on the dunes and look up at the moon,
moving from horizon to its zenith all too soon.
I hear the hush of the sea, its murmurs and swells,
and hear its rumbling, moving waves crashing like bells.
I feel the earth pulsing beneath me,
I feel the sea moving within me,
As I watch the stars above twinkle,
in a space-time distorted wrinkle,
Upon our Galactic home, Earth,
She is our hearth!

BUTTERFLY DANCER

Image

A little dancer upon the breeze,
flutters up the hill to be near me.

A flash of orange-brown all around,
Prancing to her beat.
Dancing gracefully,
fluttering here,
fluttering there,
‘oer trees against a clear blue sky.

Lifted upon the wind,
she’s coming closer,
oh sweet lovely,
I see her,
she’s almost here…

Watching moving colours and patterns dance,
Makes my heart sing.
Orange, brown, yellow, crème and white,
outlined in black ink,
smiles upon the wind and lets her beauty shine.

Coming closer now, almost touching,
Butterfly does a curtsy and swirls around my head,
making me feel dizzy, giddy and ecstatic inside.

She’s here now…
Kissing me ever so gently,
to the hum of her beating wings against my face.

I feel her through my whole body, and sing,

Thank you, sweet sister of the wind,
Delighted by your presence.
I wish you a good day too,
And I see you’re on your way…

NATURE’S TONIC

Image

Oh sweet beauty,
manifest before my eyes,
your solitude calls me to be still.

The soft green hues,
of the sun’s filtered light,
through your leaves,
rests my eyes.

I begin to relax,
As tension fades,
and unwind to peace.

Peace

Be Still…
