Calvary the movie with subtitles

Arghhhhh have you ever chosen to go to movie and darn I didn't read the description properly or felt you wanted to walk out but because you were with others you didn't.........

If you into black comedy then I am sure you could enjoy the movie......
I did love the nature scenery....... The dialogue and characters felt a bit predictable.........

If I want to be philosophical about it there were one or two interesting thoughts that came to mind.........comparing a fallible priest to Jesus , forgiveness and acceptance.,.,......

I take solace in the fact that I supported the Action for Hearing  loss campaign to movies more movies subtitled

Reflective Poetry # 1

Taking in the view

Taking a moment
enjoying the gentle breeze
absorbing the sun's het
basking in the light
birds chirping
trees rustling
calm river Foyle
liquid gold crops

Walking the Gransha Woodland

This is small patch of space between a hospital area and my daughter's school (Oakgrove Integrated College).
Its a dog walkers haven. There were also lots of runners using it as part of the training route.......
Its amazing how full of life it was ans yet so peacful at the same time. The trees and bushes were teaming with bird and insect life.

Its been a great few days because I have been able to reconnect with some friends and family.
I also have the promise and the potential to make some new connections in the community in which I now live.
The one thing that keeps me going is to have a plan then to work it, adapt it and move it forward. But I am also learning that just being still in the moment with no plan is possible. I thought that I was getting stuck in that moment....maybe getting lost.......but the connection I had on Skype, on the telephone, int he community walk, at work, at eh slimming club have alll been little stings pulling up and helping me forward.

Inner Excavation

I have startd reading a book, making some lifestyle changes and this is motivating me to start blogging again....

I look a the cover photo of this blog and realise that I have not changed it for about 6 and half years!!!! Does that mean I have been in a cacoon state  for that long??  I don't really want to analyse that for too deeply...,.that might just make me stumble in my journey..,

The e-book is Inner Excavation by Liz Lamreax..,..taken out of NI library using Overdrive Media.
Also listening to a book Called The Depression Diet Book by  Theresa Cheung
Attending Slimming World Club
Considering doing a podcast project (been in pregnant state for a few months now)
Got my camera and new walking shoes

Now all I need is community...................
