Month: April 2016

what’s it like in your neck of the woods?

your environment   your home

the inner terrain. . .and the outer world?

lovely
depressing
nurturing
heartsinking

with this in mind I’ve been taking a deeper look into seeing things around me
AS THEY ARE PRESENTLY, CURRENTLY, NOW
and ascertaining how well these environs serve me,
mine is an urban setting. . .

the approach: walking down my street I can see all the way to the horizon

trees abound in the park there

approaching the apartment, the funky rusty gate’s ok with me. . .

finally replaced the grim heartsink hairy brown mat with this. . .

nature through the window lifts the spirits

views to the outside, where prayer flags alert me
to the element of wind & far away lands

out in the yard…
had the flagstones cleaned, so much more uplifting to see bright concrete!√GdnDaffsBuddhaRabbit&Shadopond in a plastic pot, no mud no lotus

and back outside, the allotments next to the park

and still such beauty in the urban landscape
when I have the iPhone eyes to see!

I adore the ocean, trees, rivers, hills: and yet here in the urban lands of
south Bristol is where I dwell:
have been an urban fringe dweller for 90% of this life . . .

food for thought and more contemplation. . .
