Reflections: Celebration

There are lots of things to celebrate in my life. This last week I have been enjoying the arrival of spring here in Cornwall. After what seemed like weeks of grey, cold weather with rain and gales, the sun has been shining. The air has been cold, with frost at night in some areas, and the sun pleasantly warm during the day. The wild flowers on the cliffs are beginning to blossom - the white bladder campion, and just a few of the pink of the thrift that will soon be in full glorious bloom.

Reflections: Visibility

With all that has been happening for me recently, this was a word that popped into my mind  when choosing a topic for my reflections this month. As I often do, I chose to visit the Oxford Dictionary for a definition: it is very simple "The state of being able to see or be seen."

As I began to reflect looked at images first, and I chose these two very different photos from my library as, for me, they illustrate aspects of 'visibility' that are quite difficult to put into words.The very pale datura flower (also known as 'angels' trumpets' ) shines out, even on a dull day or at dusk.

Reflections: Mystery

As the first month of 2019 draws to a close, I choose to reflect again on my word for the year 'Mystery'. Do you choose a word, or words? I usually do, and some years I soon forget what they are. Maybe this year, this word will stay with me. 

Life is always a mystery. However much I may plan, how ever many arrangements I may put in place, I have no control over what happens during the year. Yes - often the arrangements come to fruition: the workshops go ahead on the dates planned. People arrive and take part. 

Beyond that, the magic is in the unknown, in the mystery. Which particular people will arrive? What will they bring with them? How will they respond to the Dare to Blossom Cards that they pick? What roads will conversations lead us along?



Welcome, welcome dear friends, welcome to the first newsletter for 2019, wishing you a wonderful year ahead

Reflections: Cycles and Changes

As the old year ends, and the new begins, I notice that some things repeat each year. Some cycles begin again: the seasons, the months, even some of the events I plan, such as the workshops at the Blue Lotus, here in Cornwall.

Other things change, for each of us is a year older than we were at the beginning of 2018. In truth, everything changes. Even as some things may seem to remain the same, they are subtly different each time around the wheel of the year.

As I pause to reflect on how to continue my thoughts here, I remember that December's 'Reflections' were entitled 'Full Cycle'. How interesting, though maybe not surprising, that in the closing month of the old year, and the opening month of the new, my mind is drawn to similar themes. (A note here: I have been experimenting with the layout - and I find that this looks good on my iPad, but not on the laptop, so my apologies if that is your experience too.)

Welcome, welcome dear friends, welcome to the newsletter for December

Season's Greetings

However you celebrate at this time of year, or if you choose not to at all, the ending of the calendar year has some significance for most of us.


Maybe you are reflecting on the end of an academic year if you are in New Zealand or Australia, looking forwards to the summer holidays. Maybe you are anticipating all the busy-ness and connections of Christmas with family and friends. Or, you may be alone, through choice or through circumstances. 

However you are spending December, I send you warm virtual hugs and greetings.

Reflections: Shifting Seasons

October, here in Cornwall, is harvest time. Wherever you are in the world there is a feeling of change. The seasons are stifting. From summer to autumn, or from winter to spring. Both shifts are equinoxes, the time when the hours of day and the hours of the light are (approximately) equal.

At these times, whether spring or autumn, the weather often becomes wild and stormy. That has certainly been the case here in Cornwall this autumn. We have experienced several days of vigorous winds, heavy rain, and pounding seas on the coast.

Today, that has all cleared, the weather fronts have passed away as the atmosphere of this magical planet swirls around us.

Out on the cliffs today the air feels different; the grass is already greener, regrowing after the dry summer. The sea is calmer, yet full of movement and energy.
