Light shines anew every day…


One of the joys of living here is to walk amidst nature. Film makers come from far and wide to craft with the light that shines here and yesterday morning there was the Liverpool skyline on the left, Wallasey on the right and in the distance between them the start of The Pennines.

It’s quiet at early light and there were a few runners, dog’s taking their owners for a walk and other walkers like myself just soaking it all up. The beach at low tide was covered with Sandpipers and I have not seen that many before, so the sea and river must have brought a bountiful harvest for them.

As I walked down our road there was a large, lovely old dog who was out with his Mum and his little Terrier companion. He could barely see his eyes were so cloudy, but he stopped stock still at the end of the road and waited. I fussed him up and shared the love with his buddy. Blanket love covering all.

A fellow walker and I grinned at each other as we passed, as some folk simply ‘get it’ don’t they?

Racing across the emerging sands was an exuberant Irish Wolfhound/Labrador cross. The birds kept rising as he approached and you could tell it was a time honoured game that they could all play again and again. His joy shone out as he raced about and the patience of his Dad was evident as he pottered about the rock pools. His furry companion coming over now and then just in case his Dad had discovered something interesting.

I am sure that loving light seeps inside us and flows out again, an ever flowing cycle from open hearts. Lynn and I met a lady yesterday, as she visited our home to see if things would balance for us all with her living here too. As Lynn commented later, it was like a scene from The Golden Girls. We all had so much in common and sat there with coffee and yummy biscuits nattering away together. As she made to leave, she turned and we all smiled as she held her arms out. I know you can all picture us standing there with our arms wrapped around each other.

When we feel, it is not what happened before, nor what tomorrow holds that counts, it is the moment and in that moment is love. ❤

    Love the way you take in the beauty that some take for granted and share from your lovely heart Jane. ❤ xo

    I can only empathize, and lament the passage of time. There are so many moments where we would dwell forever, if we had the choice…

    We do dwell too much on the past and fear too much for the future. But living life as it comes well is most important.

    Another stunning post, Jane. Your use of light–so many interpretations–is perfect. Your blanket love everywhere, and especially the old dog, is the kind of love that changes the world one heart at a time. ❤

    A soul sense, where ego is present, yet steps aside while Spirit reaches out its love. BTW – Are you familiar with Barbara Woodhouse? She wrote -There Are No Bad Dogs …

    This piece of writing is so lovely Jane, it made me cry. But then I am very wobbly at the moment as you know. But the tears were good ones and this scene was a joy to visualise. I could smell the fresh air, wonderful. Love you my precious friend xxx❤️

    You have the knack, my Jane buddy, for taking the ordinary and rendering it so extraordinary. Truly, I’m blessed to count you as my buddy.
    Luv and hugz from Singapore 🙂
