Beyond the Sphere

Not really, but Happy September!

Hare(!) are some of the white rabbits that have hopped along this year since February.

memories appear as echoes;
time’s reflection shows

The air was thick and humid.

Heat trapped beneath the thickening clouds above made everything feel close. Tense. The light, subdued a little by the cloud cover, had a yellowish tinge to it.

Every so often the silence was broken by a long rumble of thunder. And within the rumbles came the occasional bright flash of lightning. Just a flash, no bolts or streaks.

My legs felt heavy as I walked. It felt as though I was walking against something, as though something was pushing me back every step I made. But I had to keep going. I had to keep moving forward.

I had to get back before the rains came. The signs were all there, a storm was definitely rolling in.

One step in front of the other, clothes stuck to my body as I moved. I had to keep going.

…But the rains would have been welcome.

Friday Thoughts

It’s been another relaxing week here at the Mansion, and outside in the Wider World. The weather’s been warmish, although, apparently, it is expected to become scorching over the next few days. I don’t mind the sunshine, but I’m not too keen when it becomes too hot.

Especially at night. Hot, sticky nights, where sleep is elusive, and tossing and turning takes on a life of its own. I’m sure it should be introduced into the next Olympics: synchronised tossing and turning; timed tossing and turning; and tossing and turning to music.

For the past few weeks, I’ve been listening to a variety of pieces of music containing binaural beats. These beats and associated theta waves have a way of programming the mind, or rather reprogramming it. They are available in lots of different flavours too! You can turn your eyes blue, if you so desire. Or you can lose weight, become better looking, become more confident, become more creative. I’m sure there are beats available for just about any aspect of life.

I class these as being Metaphysical, in much the same way I class the Universal Law of Attraction and Cosmic Ordering. We have to put something in to get something out: and that something is belief. If we believe it will happen, it will happen.

The brain uses electrical impulses to work, and these beats externally send impulses to the brain through the ears. The thing is, if they work, great. If they don’t work, the music is so relaxing the body and mind is getting the much deserved rest and relaxation it needs.

Since I started losing weight, one thing about me has changed. I have started to take more of an interest in my appearance. For years, I wasn’t bothered how I looked; I was just me and that was that. But now, I’m opening my own book of vanity! I can’t say with confidence I’m 100 per cent vain, but I’m certainly a lot more vain than I once was.

I pluck eyebrows. Only the mile long ones, you understand, the rest can remain unplucked. I have cheekbones. Visible, defined cheekbones which are accented when I smile. I have dimples when I smile. I love smiling now. No longer do I look like my chin is (chins are) dragging along the floor. And I can see definition starting to appear in my jawline. Once the remaining chins have disappeared, I’m sure my chin and jaw will be the stuff of legend!

I’m back in work again, but only in the mornings for now, so that takes some of the stress surrounding that pesky virus away. I’m also in an office on my own, which makes it easier as well. The afternoons give me plenty of hours to rest and relax, although thinking about it, over the next few days the afternoons may be spent catching up with the sleep I missed whilst training for the Olympics at night.

I must check if there’s a binaural track for reducing bags under the eyes. It may be needed if the bags clash with the cheekbones.

I have a bit to do this afternoon, and then I must get back to catching up with some of the blogs I’m missing. I dip into the reader occasionally, and read what’s there, but not everyone is in the reader at that time, hence I’ve missed quite a few.

It’s funny how quickly more time turns into less time. I must claw back some of that time, otherwise I’ll always be trying to catch up.

But, it’s Friday! The weekend! Which is always good!

Feel Good now!

A bright light woke me.

It was the Moon, reflected off the clouds. Normally, cloud cover obliterates fantastic views of the heavens, but last night they took part! Bleary-eyed, I looked out over the Grinds and grabbed myself a couple of grainy photos. The Moon being quite low in the sky made things look all the more mysterious.

And in the stillness of the night, the clouds were the only things moving… that I could see!

WHITE RABBITS FOR AUGUST 2020!

These mad August Rabbits are just hopping to welcome in a brand new month. Like them, here’s hopping for a good one!

The transition between Winter and Spring a few years ago. Black and white with just a splash of colour.

Fancy coming with me through the time tunnel? Backwards or forwards – you decide!

Calm and cool looking.

Which is how we all should try to be: calm and cool!

By the way, Becky has opened her latest Squares Gallery today, so click the panel above if you’d like to see a host of other photographs – all square, of course!

Quiet

‘Quiet’ is the latest theme for #WorldWatercolorMonth, and I was transported to a view of a river at night. Obviously, the Moon was quite bright, otherwise visibility would have been a little poor. Even the water flows with a serene gentleness at night, helping all the forest dwellers to sleep soundly. In the silvery light, strange shadows can be seen, but surely they’re from the realms of the imagination.

HAPPY JULY!

A very quick scribble to welcome in July. It had to be quick as time is passing by even faster now!

Sometimes it’s just good to be creative! Most times, actually!!!

Tomorrow is Nia’s Blog Birthday Bash, so I created a little picture for her featuring three cats to help her celebrate! It took a while… and it was also Shopping Day today… that took a while as well, but it’s all done now. Be Creative! Feel Good! And Happy Blog Birthday, Nia!
