Snake. I sense snake, singular. I anticipate finding it behind the curtains or the bed. For the record, I don’t have a snake phobia. Yet lately I have been expecting its presence, a premonition without the fear, anticipating being taken aback by its presence and then … nothing. It feels okay. Noticing this anticipation is...

The Layers I have walked through many lives, some of them my own, and I am not who I was, though some principle of being abides, from which I struggle not to stray. When I look behind, as I am compelled to look before I can gather strength to proceed on my journey, I see... Continue Reading →
RonovanWrites Haiku Challenge 103 with prompt words - Summer, Fun Summer heat depletes Seasons change, the same each year Fun eludes, no end. ~ FlorenceT © 2016 FlorenceT Copyright reserved. The author asserts her moral and legal rights over this work.
This is summer… Summer in Australia officially began on 1 December. With all that has happened and ‘life’ continuing to be busy, my conscious mind did not acknowledge the changing seasons. To be honest spring came and went in a flurry of activity and minimal appreciation. I speak of this with a little regret. That... Continue Reading →
Our sense of self is defined at the point of and through our contact with another. We are changed at every moment we interact with our environment be they people, systems, nature… We are many selfs and we are one.
Change is inevitable in life, and I have written much about this here. Some of us react to change in a maladaptive manner that can be injurious to self, some respond with equanimity and acceptance, and many of us do a bit of both. We are after all human, and a little flawed :-). And... Continue Reading →
There is a bit of 'reconstruction' happening here. Why? Because I have migrated my other blog here - a blog set up 'to experiment with writing'... meaning in effect a place where I am prepared to make mistakes, to make a 'fool' of myself as I learn new things, to be 'silly' or to take...

If we are 100% certain everything will remain as is then there is no need for positivity, or negativity for the matter. If 'things' are great now, then it's fait accompli. The same for the so-called 'bad stuff'. Realistically, there are few things that are truly 'bad stuff', rather perspectives. Experience is not what happens... Continue Reading →
I referred to intentions in my last post about change. Well my intentions are simple. I intend to pay greater attention to and be more aware of the changes happening in my life. To elaborate, to appreciate their essence and the implications they have for my life. This is not wishful intention, for I have... Continue Reading →
A new year, and there is much exhortation to discard the old, the ill-founded, the undesirable, the staid for a different path, a brighter future…change. If not the impetus of the new year, at some point this has or will inevitably happen - we long for, and many of us will stride forth to manufacture,... Continue Reading →
Yes, I've been 'outed'. To be honest, Ronovan had my 'permission' to do so... nothing sinister there. Don't know what I mean? Go to RonovanWrites' article. Six months ago when I began blogging, I was adamant that in blogosphere, only my words need matter. I am still of that mind insofar as my writing is... Continue Reading →
'Hold on' is perhaps a mantra for the weary, who are ready to lay down and let whatever it is wash over them, when it seems there is nothing left inside to rally. This, I'd imagine, is a slow and painful death of the soul and spirit. And we have been there, have we not,... Continue Reading →
We are changed by each and every contact, each and every touch with another... and our lived experience is enriched. As two right hands touch, creating a sacred space... Two right hands, held together in an upward spiralling movement enclosing an empty space - See more at: http://www.musee-rodin.fr/en/rodin/educational-files/sculpture-and-architecture#sthash.SImx4YZr.dpuf
