Bats are very good at finding a hidden, safe place where they could stay when they are asleep. Not all animals can do that. Some are standing up, nodding from time to time, but always ready to escape if danger comes too close.
Maybe we could look at the bats and see what we can do to make our own sleeping place truly restful.
When we are sleeping our mind has a chance to catch up with ourselves. Without interruptions. And we have a chance to find out what we want to tell us.
A very wise dream healer I listened to said:
Our dreams are gifts from you, to you, about you – Louise Minerva-Li
Stay in the moment when you wake up. Try to recall what you experienced, your thoughts, emotions.
Perhaps write them down.
Let your dreams help you.
When the bats have had their rest they are very good at finding their ways, even in total darkness.
So we are grateful for what nature shows us.
And we are gentle with nature and ourselves.

I wish you peace, in night dream or day dream.
I thought about changes, transformations.
A lot has changed during the months I haven’t been writing here.
Interesting changes. Liberating.
I have come to learn how changes may heal, how healing helps us to grow, how growing helps us to live.
I am grateful to life for leading me to where I am supposed to be.
So I have changed theme of the page, again, (I really enjoy doing that). I have a million things and thoughts I want to share here. I have lost my passion for photographing (for now at least) and replaced it with painting and sketching. And I recalled a poem about transformation I wrote some time ago, but I called it Reshapings then:
The coffee is good
strong and hot
I don’t always
and not always
hot any more
I follow along
people I meet
my thoughts of joy
this is the plan
for my stay
all is forgiven
when life passes
I would really love to see us all helping each other to find the best way to live together. Reaching out to see and listen to those who are lonely and don’t find the lights in life. Using our own light, our experiences and our tools to help. Every glimmer of hope counts.
I wish you a light and bright day today
all represent edge in their own way to me :)
A room from a different view
I found this part man-made, part nature.
For some reason I’m intrigued by the sea in monochrome. But today’s assignment was about architecture, like houses
I wish you a wonderful day :)
Yes, a little behind with this post, but I’m glad I did it anyway :)
The color orange
in the summer
and in early spring
And in this case even the non-color white pops up as a color
Today IS Light.
And if yesterday was difficult to choose one picture, today was impossible. Nature is the pure image of light. The air is so bright, the water is glowing and the grass and moss so lavishing green.
And the shadows are deep and dark. So to try to capture light do I choose the source itself, or do I choose the result of the sun hitting an object. I really could not make up my mind.
This is what I also saw today
“Day eight: Natural world and leading lines” – Photo 101
Lines in nature. Hard to choose.
Shapes everywhere waiting to be seen,
but perhaps they are content, seen or not,
just building life, growing
altogether, with us.
I am actually reading a book, or rather, I have started to read a book . I know I should read more, it just kind of is not happening. But in book stores in Great Britain I always get so inspired. I don’t always buy anything. I tell myself “you wont read that anyway so don’t spend money on it”. But then a new book shop turns up and my eyes catch that same book again and again. And then finally at the airport I do not dare to leave with out bringing that treasure back home with me. So I started reading this on the plane. And it caught all my senses instantly. The writing mode is fantastic. I truly wish I could write like that. I still keep it in my handbag. I touch it when I search for my wallet or notebook. I know it is there. Soon I will pick it up and start reading it.
If you happen to finish it before me please tell me if it is just as good all the way to the end.
To me TV is the ultimate sign of solitude. I love to watch a good movie or show but afterwards I feel more empty and insecure of what to do than ever before, even if I’m together with another person.
I used the tilt shift on Instagram to try to copy the bokeh effect in the background. Still using my phone but now I miss my camera more than ever, I really must go to a repair place with it :(
All the best to you on this wonderful Friday
