Sleeps

You know that lovely feeling that you get at the end of a long day – the sort of good, happy, contented peace that comes over you when all is well with the world, when you’re in love with everyone and things are finally starting to look up for you ? When you know you’ve done the best you possibly can, with that little extra thrown in, just for good measure ? When you know you’ve still got a job tomorrow, a roof over your head, a little money in the bank, there’s food in the kitchen and a few bottles of good wine left on the rack? When the car sailed through its MOT, the garden is looking lovely and neat and tidy (but not too fussy) and the garage roof will hold for at least another year ? When you heard that you’d passed that much needed (and difficult exam) so now you can get on to that more challenging course you’d set your heart on ?

Well, as you reflect back on how wonderful it is to be alive, well, and happy and in such a positive frame of mind, you count your blessings and climb into bed with the prospect of experiencing that most wonderful feeling of all - drifting off to sleep …….

Heat Exhaustion

It was a hot steamy day in August so 1da went outside to read one of his favorite novels. He made himself comfortable with his book lying back on his special lounging chair situated under a tamarind tree. But, the heat of the mid-day sun was overbearing and after a while he came back inside for a cool, refreshing drink of cranberry juice. He took his sandals off and as he proceeded to make his way to the refrigerator, he stumbled on the rug and fell flat on his face still clutching the book in his hand.

What do I see ?

Postby Yogi » Sun Mar 18, 2007 6:38 am

I see a form wanting to leap out, not one that has fallen. Here is a great visualization of the spirit form in which we are all delivered to this plane of existence. The urgency to arise and morph into something outside the envelope is plainly visible. Was it the book, or the light shed upon it, that created the inspiration to be free? I don't know. My heart mourns the possibility of donning the nearby sandals, and thus anchoring the soul to solid earth.

hey Yogi, i like that. nice piece of drifting into a thinking vision.

is it time for another image to write about/from/to? any one want to submit one?

if not i will do one on my return. yup i'm going off-rock for the first time in probably 6-7 years. about as short as possible and still be considered as traveling i think - it's to another island. looks like it will happen - roughly saturday until about apr. 1. just so people here will know. (i'll post it in a more appropriate thread in a minute)
