Life, crafty stuff, long walks, thoughts, and little oddities.

Opposites attract

The weather this  morning was appalling. Gone were the plans to go for a stroll. Instead we stayed inside, all occupied with our own pursuits. It made me ponder on how we react to situations, dependent on our mood and situation. So here is a parallel text.

Rain lashes at the window

Sun peeps from behind the clouds      /         The sun is in hiding

Somewhere there must be a rainbow        /        Struggling to fight through

             I huddle inside         /       I hide inside

                    Protected from the weather       /      Retreating from the weather

              Warm and cosy     /     Feeling trapped

           Listening to the wind       /      Listening to the wind

                Chime music in my ear        /       Howl around the building

Absorbed in my crochet      /       Busying my hands

                The time passes        /        The time crawls by

Until at last I stir and stretch   /    Until at last I rise

Having weathered the storm

The weather cheered up after lunch. We went ten-pin bowling. Admired the rainbow over the estuary. And this evening I played with some crochet, completing yet another angel, plus a star and a bauble. The day was completed with homemade damson gin and some chocolate. A good time.

Taking time out to ponder life and everything else. This is the space where I press the pause button on my busy life to reconnect with God, to re-energize, and focus on my creativity. Time out to blow bubbles, walk on the beach, write some stuff, do some needlework, and generally enjoy life once again. You can view my main blog at www.iggandfriends.wordpress.com. I also have another blog at www,faithinthehome.wordpress.com, and a arty/crafty one at http://52weeksofcreations.wordpress.com/. I hope you enjoy visiting :)
