Sight

Some scribblings from Saturday evening.

Sight

Visual

Wide eyed

Bright light

Also looks like

Blurry flickers

Haziness at night

Being blinkered

Tiredness.

Still appreciate

Seagulls overhead

Seeing smiles

Snowfall.

Bike rides

Sunshine

and walks up mountains.

A wild Heart

Some scribblings I wrote yesterday for a dear friend of mine. 📷 Suhyeon Choi.

Early mornings and branches

Early mornings and branches.

Breathing in ordinary moments.

Crisp air fills my lungs and frost crackles underfoot.

Looking up at silhouettes in the sky.

Shadowed by the night sky.

Soon to be flooded in daylight

In between seasons

Taken on my walk to work this morning. I’ve added some scribblings from the other day.

 

Life is a series of in betweens

Paths that seem like dead ends

and some that are not.

Filled with joy beauty, hard times and wonder.

 

And sometimes it’s a fight

to see the light in the darkness

But most of all I cling to the hope that He is mightier than any troubles that I face.

Even in sorrowful times

I am glad that He holds it all

 

And brings comfort amidst the tears.

And when I look back

I’m in awe of all He’s done

And grateful that He’s there

all the time.

Thursday scribbles

Hope Over Fear

Reminding myself that amidst uncertainty

I can still choose hope over not knowing what’s next

Hope over fear

Hope over shame

Hope over negativity

Hope amidst challenges

That it’s light that dispels the darkness

Light is life giving

It’s where the magic happens

and new ideas

become more than just dreams

Where the sparks of imagination fly

and old patterns become new paths

Interwoven into who we are

Stories still going

Our lives are stories

still in motion

Full of questions

Right now

In the in betweens

Of old and new things

Of birthdays

family

autumn days

Windswept

Looks like

making time for what

you love most

Homemade bread

Times by the fire

Knitting

Reading good stories

Reminding yourself that

what feels like forever really isn’t

Learning to patience in these

days

That although hard

The in between is good learning ground

And prepares you for what’s next.

Being in the now and still choosing

hope

Especially on days when life is hard

Saturday evening scribblings

Wanting a place to call home

Something that is not new..

When you’ve moved a lot

So much so that

Home is in many places

But still dreaming of having a

place of my own

Even with no idea where that’ll be

Some place that’s cosy, relaxing

Where friends feel welcome

With a window seat to admire the view

And to sit and read with a brew

The smell of baking in the air

Mmm apple crumble..

Moments of JOY

When you’ve had so many days of joy

Kisses from heaven

Hugs from those you love most

Surprises

 

 

Woken up to sunlight streaming

through your window

The hint of autumn in the air

 

 

Cuddles with my littlest friend

More moments of joy

Hangs with precious friends.

 

 

Train rides, music and sunsets

City skies

Castles

and bagpipes

Cobbled streets

Quaint little alleyways.

Happiness bucketfuls of it

So much

To be grateful for.

Because life is for

Grasping with both hands

One day at a time

Taking your sparkle

Everywhere

You go.

Autumn Fires

Riding home
through puddles

Mornings with
a crispness in the air
Smelling like autumn
already

Leaves leaving patterns
like little tree paths
on the ground
Old houses
Greet me with a
welcoming smile

All the cracks
like hidden pathways
Transport me to
times gone by

The smell of wood fires
takes me back
To childhood evenings
Roasting chestnuts
in the embers

Watching Dad raking
fallen leaves
All the rustling
reminds me of
Hedgehogs

And autumn walks in the woods
Watching squirrels chase
Each other from branch
to branch

Oh the delights of autumn
When the trees put on
their best show

The best symphony
of many colours
ochre reds, auburn
golden sunbeams
