the Inspiration Fairy strikes again…

WoW o WoW! Dontcha’ just love it when these things happen?
S’like Serendipity or Synchronicity or Something ॐ Magic! 

OK, it doesn’t seem like such a big deal if you’re living in the ‘real world’, anI know I should get out more; but it was such a very gently cool thing to happen that I gotta share it with y’all.

What normally happens is that I post an article here, do a final check through for typos, then head to get a brew.
That’s when the Inspiration Fairy can strike!
Gawd know where she hides in my tiny kitchen; but suddenly there she is. Repeatedly hitting me on the head with a lit sparkler (she’s too psycho for just a wand), until I give in, come back and sit down. Cup of tea ignored and going cold on the shelf there. To edit (often re-write) the post, and re-jig (or replace) the pictures. And often add a sprinkling of hippie chic before she’s happy.

But WoW, look at what magic of Serendipity or Synchronicity or Something, her demanding i Get things Just Right made time for.

Or as my mate Maitri would say ‘faffing about’. (See, I have to post an image + quote on Tumblr before I can make a screenshot of it to put here. And then there’s always the next day’s ‘final’ edit to be done after morning prayers…
Endless ‘faffing’ :~)

Anyways, it was while I was working on Tumblr, that this post – perfectly illustrating that subtle magic happens in the calm, clear space of patient acceptance – appeared.

So this has now become part 1½. With part 1 ‘Let Go to Become‘ (the afore mentioned ‘faff’ / or cause of the ‘WoW, depending on how you look at it); and part 2 to come.

 but this ‘Monet photograph’ has become the perfect interlude

 There, rant over 🙂 I can settle back into my migraine, but now within the warm cosy contented glow of Serendipity or Synchronicity or Something. And it hardly even rates as a migraine, now.

Homage to babydoll1976 for her brill pics, BTW.

Let Go to Become …

 

Letting old things go

– and moving onto pastures new can be scary, especially if it isn’t something we planned.
But we can experience magic in that space if we’re open to it.


Magic can happen in the calm, clear space of patient acceptance.

½, the Inspiration Fairy Strikes Again)

so as to accept the life that is waiting for us.”

What we try to keep for ourselves is just what we are sure to lose.”
