ninabagley day 29

ruby, garnet, tourmaline,
highest aspects of the heart -
winter's depth of love

#spirituality #compassion (I have to apologize for my current magpie proclivities and my addiction to these table vignettes... but when limited to 17 syllables, as is the case for proper haiku, I have turned to the visual approach of sharing my minimally elaborated days with all of you) xx

  •   rachelletoimata @ninabagley feeling the love baby 6h
  •   indepolder @ninabagley thank you! I also would love to live in a cabin in the woods, like you! I live in the very flat part of the netherlands! But since 10 years not in the city, but just outside it along a canal in the countryside. Our dream came true here! Thank you for inspire me with your art pics, it makes me trying to try to make some necklaces and also your red stichwork with the birds is very nice. Sometimes you find a blog or instagram you just like very much! Hope my english is not too bad.... 6h

ninabagley very late on the night before last, I stepped barefooted out onto the back deck into complete darkness so that I could see the multitudes of bright stars overhead. "give me just one", I said, to the spirit of Daddy, who passed a few years back, or to some great power of the universe out there. within just a few seconds, a falling star shot across the sky behind the bare tree branches of the massive oak out back. it was magnificent, it was a gift, and it was mine... 3d

ninabagley a tiny little snippet of a very cold walk this afternoon down to Little Meadow #westernnorthcarolina #whereswalter #waltergram 3d
  •   lyckeliv Like gold and water 3d

  •   minniecar Burrrrrrrstay warm lovie 3d
  •   maggieinsc Same thing down here. I am abt 150 miles south of you near Augusta. Hope the WNC does not get a lot of snow. At least it won't last long!! 3d
  •   mistymawn We are covered in layers of snow. Wahhh... I thought I had finally come to enjoy winter - until we moved back to PA. I cannot wait until spring. Sigh. Thank you for the lovely haiku. Some snow your way would no doubt make for some very beautiful haikus written by you... I love the daily readings. xo 2d
  •   ninabagley @mistymawn I've thought of you so much with this storm. do this: paint something in winter neutrals. your favorite tree? I challenge you. tear out words from old text and mix them up into a fitting haiku to go with what you paint. I would love to see what you do with this....... x️x️x️x 2d
  •   wildflowerseasoul lovely! 3h
  •   scarlet.fields It feels like I want to paint it! 2h

counting quiet days
with feathers, sticks, acorns, stone:
Winter, you are slow

Field Notes:
as January begins to wind down, I'm beginning to plan a tactile book format for my year of haikus and photograph prompts. many years ago, I purchased this ancient photo album, which still holds some of the original owner's photographs. at some point soon, I will take hot press watercolor paper, printed photos, and the first month's haikus and stitch/bind the beginnings for my 365 day project. I love that you are following with encouragement along the way...
