Opening the senses…..

‘Our five senses are like openings through which we receive all the perceptions that are then transformed into concepts and ideas’.    Buddhist Offerings. 

Hear the bird song and see the beauty…..


Touch the flowers and the trees


Smell the air


and taste the sweet nectar of life. 


Have a lovely weekend.

August – the lazy hazy days of summer….

‘Remember to be gentle with yourself and others.    We are all children of chance and none can say why some fields blossom while others lay brown beneath the August sun.’   Kent Nerburn – American author.

A World free of barriers and division…….


“Unfettered wings span beyond prosaic frontiers.    

Hummingbirds send forth a spiritual grace guiding us into a world of boundless imagination and enlightenment.  

A world free of barriers and division – a wellspring of unity.”   Janet Weight Reed. 

I will be away for the next few days.   Back here on Tuesday.

Peace and love.

Gentle colour and hummingbirds for Monday morning…..


It’s that time of the year when many people start to yearn for spring and sunshine…..and in that yearning we often forget that animals and birds around the Globe are also starting to prepare for a new season and long journeys.

The tiny hummingbird is currently enjoying warmer climes…..but it wont be too long before it prepares for its long migration. 



These magical little creatures seek out colour in the form of beautiful flora and fauna which gives them the rich nectar they will need. 



Although at times our immediate environment might seem devoid of colour – it is always there waiting to bring energy and life.    

We just have to be aware of it, and open ourselves to the unseen magic in our world.

Sending Magical Hummingbirds to my friends in the Philippines.

Through social media and Axlephiin Publishing, which I am very proud to be part of, I have come to know many people from the Philippines.  

I have learned that it’s a country that produces highly creative and talented artists, with a clear respect and love for the arts in its many different expressions.  

My friends in Manilla, say that the city is OK, and life is going on as per normal, however there are clearly other parts of this beautiful Archipelago, where there has been total devastation from the giant typhoon which hit yesterday. 

Sitting in the Ring of Fire, an area notorious for earthquakes, volcanos and typhoons, the Philippine people are used to disruptions, however, even for them, this most recent natural disaster, was huge. 

Hummingbirds are courageous and resilient, qualities that I know the Philippine people posses and will show in the coming days. 



Wishing everyone a peaceful and loving weekend.
