Peaceful moments ….



Sunday morning and a shaft of light broke through and the only sound was the cathedral bells mingling with the call of the birds.

This afternoon The Mersey looks polished and the shadows of light make Liverpool appear as if it is resting on stilts in the water. You can feel the peace in this home as a loving energy.

I wake up saying ‘thank you’ and feel it throughout my days as I potter around working, creating and connecting.

My heart swells with gratitude for the blessings of the loving connections and all the sparks that flow into each and every day. I sit here watching the tides and without expectation I know, simply know, that all is balanced in the flow.

We can spend our lives going ‘Well, what about this and what about that?’ and ‘How about this and how about that?’ An endless cycle of worry, concern, upset and fretting. Yet the heart knows. The heart knows that if we can just pause in a moment, the light will shine in. If we can just stop the endless tape of words and thoughts running through our heads, just for a moment, then we find peace in the pause.

    Ah, that endless loop of word and thought! I love the perception of Liverpool from a distance, and all that can imply. Happy days, even in winter: sometimes I think winter is the happiest season of them all. Hugs to you, Jane.

    Jane, you are the embodiment of the saying “bloom where you’re planted.” I for one, have always looked for and found the natural and unique beauty of any place I have ever lived. How often we look back fondly on places past and realize we missed the many qualities of that place while we were there.

      Hello my Bro, it is always lovely to hear from you. I had a thought when I read your message and it’s worth sharing. We chose each other as siblings and it’s underpinned by us being kindred spirits. I love you ❤ xX
